Is it scanned so the pages are pictures or is it actual text?
If it is scanned you could use various OCR to convert it to text, but there would be a lot of spelling mistakes and some (depending on software) formating issues.

it is actual text, but obviously with a lot of images and the typical magazine's pagination...

Well, magazines are naturally very complex formated and PDF being lousy source for conversion, it might be best if you leave it as it is...
Or is it so hard to read?
PDF support on Onyx seems to be excellent.

Hello,
thank you for your answer.
Indeed it's possible to read it, but it's very uncomfortable.. you have to move very often from a point to another of the screen..
The boox does its work very well, but it needs a couple of inches more.
that's why i thought about conversion, but i imagined that it was not easy at all..

I'll follow with zoom and stylus then...

regards
