Landscape ZOOM BUG Work Around
On Landscape -> (Normal Page Mode), when user activates "Zoom" function, the zoom slider is already at 9/10 of the way to max, and merely correlates to 100% zoom. So max zoom is limited to around 110% zoom. This effectively renders zoom in landscape mode useless.
On Landscape mode, press the magnify button. Press Page Mode, select a page mode other than Normal. Press Magnify button, Press Zoom In. Now you can zoom considerably more. The zoom slider is no longer already at 9/10 of the way to max. It is about 3/10 of the way to max, thus leaves considerably more room to be increased.
On some documents, the contents of the page will simply disappear before the zoom slider can be adjusted to maximum zoom.
There you have it, there's even a bug with-in a bug. Someone at Sony watched Inception too many times. ANother incompetent product from Sony.

Another new discovery:
Sometimes the reader doesn't respond when you resize scanned pdfs (ocr'd). Try use two page view. I found my book reflowed and resized in front of me. Dropped my jaw a little bit

I tried it and that is amazing! Then you can switch the mode back to portrait and it stays reflowed. In fact it appears that it will show you the pdf page natively and then reflowed. That's great!
