Epub to MOBI

I recently converted an E-book from Epub to MOBI using Calibre. When I transfered the book to my Kindle DX the text size was very small and difficult to read. The pages, though extending the full width of the Kindle screen, only filled about half it's height.
Also, when I tried to use the "change text size" or the "number of words per line" function, there was no change whatsoever to the page appearance! Each page of text seems to act as if it were a picture, in that, the cursor cannot be placed on an individual word, but triggers the "zoom" function.
Can anyone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?

You should post this question to the calibre forum here.

But I think if you tweak the 'Look & Feel' conversion settings you can get the base font to be larger.

Tomsen,
many thanks for that. I'll give that a try. Will let you know if it works.
