Question Working with scientific papers

I just have my new Sony PRS-600. I'm glad... but I'm also disappointed with it.
I read a lot of papers every day and I need some kind of tool for converting them.
They are three-column pdf. In landscape mode and a little zoom, I can read them without problems, but I can't make annotation when I'm in zoom mode.
Is there any tool for converting three to one column? I spent a few hours reading the forum but I didn't find anything about this.
Thank you!

I guess you might try PaperCrop.

However, if someone told you that these devices would work well with three-column scientific papers, you've been horribly misled!

Aye. PDF support has got better over the years but it is still far from ideal. They nearly got it right on the 600 & 900, but not quite.

I think that you'll fing all the converting a hassle if you read these types of document regularly.
