Firstly, are you talking about using "FullScreenReading=true" in the config file, or are you using a 4.11.x firmware that has the options to hide the title and footer? The difference is that the latter has a larger margin at the bottom than the older way. That mean there will be a bigger gap than might be desired.

But, just as important is the font size and other layout settings. The renderer will not put a line on the screen if it doesn't fit. This means that if there is not quite the space for a line including the line spacing, then the new page will be started. And with a larger font, plus any built in margin, there can be a lot of seemingly wasted space.
Thank you for your reply, davidfor; I'm talking about the "FullScreenReading=true" mod. I've noticed that the bottom margin is always bigger than the top, left and right margins: I also tried applying the 'custom default kepub margins' patch from GeoffR, which is supposed to set all margins for kepub books to 0, but no change. I'll change the line-height and size of the font I use, and see if I can mitigate the effect.

OK, you are not running the 4.11.x firmware. There are threads to discuss the patches. I would suggest finding the one for the firmware version you are running and asking in there.

I don't know if this is the right place to place a question. My question is does there exist a list of valid setting statements for the Kobo eReader.conf file?

I'm asking this here because searching for "zoom" brought up this thread and several posts that said kepubs were better for zooming in on pictures. How? I've just finished a book with lots of charts and graphs and I could not find any way top zoom in on them. Nor did I find anything in the onboard user guide to help. How do zoom in on images or other graphic content in a kepub?

Double tapping on the image should open the image in an separate image viewer which supports zoom and panning.

Hmm, thanks. It was an epub I'd converted to kepub via Calibre before sideloading, double-tapping on any image takes me back to the previous page.

I don't need to do this very often, so I just tested. Epub with some images, converted to kepub and sent. A double tap opens the images. I had one problem image. It must have been just to big for the rest of the page. It showed a one or two pixel strip of the image on one page with the rest of the page blank. The rest of the image was at the top of the next. Double-tapping the part on the second page acted as a single tap. But, double-tapping below the strip on the first page worked top open in.

I used a conversion to do this, but, when I have used the extended driver in the past, it worked the same. It is possible it is the code for the image. This is a simple img tag inside a p tag. I have used SVG wrapped images in the past, and I'm sure they worked as well.

After reading your latest reply, I tried again. I must have been tapping in the page turning area of the screen, because when I tried in a different part of the images, it worked. Thank you!
