Resolution for '6' inch screen

Hi,

I've been having great difficulty in reading the sony ebook reader screen.
sometimes it gets very small and the next size is too big.
This requires me to zoom on each page which is pretty difficult.

please enlighten me on how to create/convert pdf into a good resolution which is best suited for 6 inch screen.

If it's a PDF you are creating yourself, try following the guidelines in the document here:

Thanks for the above link. Even after following all steps the book i transferred is very slow read scan in the reader. When i click on the medium font size the text disappears.

I have PRS-600. Can you help me in fixing this problem.

Is there any reason why you insist in producing and reading PDFs?

I generally convert text only documents into the epub format, which is faster on the ebook and easier to read.

There are several ways to do that. The easiest way is to use Calibre (see the corresponding section in this forum), which does that automatically for you.

It's my opinion that PDFs and small displays just don't work well. I avoid them at all costs. There are some that will work, but generally they are just not very compatible.

Ok let me give calibre a try. I've had it with PDF.
