Post How do I create MS-Edge style layout in Calibre Ebook Viewer?

Hi all

I'd like to recreate the MS-Edge layout on the Calibre Ebook Viewer.

Here is an example. I love the spacing on left, right, & in the middle.

I can continue reading on Ms-Edge but it's not supposed to be a reader and lacks many features.

Can someone please help me with the custom CSS?

Thanks
Vin

Go to viewer preferences--page layout set your margins start at 80 and increase until you get what you want.

@gbm Thanks mate. I set to 100 each and it looks really good now.

One more question - how do I turn 2 pages when I press the Right arrow key on my keyboard? At the moment it only goes to next page, which basically moves the page on right to left.

Go to viewer preferences--Scrolling behavior:
  • Click: Mouse Wheel scroll by screen fulls instead of pages.
  • Click: Clicking on the margins scroll by screen fulls instead of pages.

@gbm That didn't work. I tried all combinations of enabling and disabling these options but none worked.

I'm reading in landscape mode with 2 pages on my screen. And I'd like to turn 2 pages at once when I press the right arrow button on my physical keyboard. At the moment if I press the Right arrow button, it only moves forward 1 page. I'd like to be 2 pages somehow.

You need to customize the keyboard shortcuts in the viewer preferences. Or just press spacebar instead of the arrow keys to turn pages.
