I haven't tested that feature in quite a while. It looks like it is not working correctly now. I have logged it as a bug.

If you want reflow, you should not select fit page or native pdf. Do not select those. You can override the device settings with your own device settings. I recommend something like on the screenshot attached. If your text does not have multiple columns, set the maximum number of columns to 1.

Dear Villus,
same problem with iliastald, reflowing isn't work very well, I have tested your recommended settings but it's not working. I attach you an image before and after convertion.

Try a larger value than the default (the default is 0.006) for -gtr, like 0.2. (gtr = Gap Threshold for Rows.) See the attached screenshot. This makes k2pdfopt more likely to separate rows of text even when they are crowded together. The drawback is that too high of a value might separate images or figures incorrectly, but if you don't have any images or figures, you can set this to a higher value without much drawback.

add briss?

Hi

wouldn't it be worth it to add briss (https://sourceforge.net/projects/briss/) to the first post? This crops PDFs and makes them also much more kindle-friendly that way (?)

regards

This thread is dedicated to k2pdfopt usage, help, and issues. There is a separate thread dedicated to briss already. Both are part of the PDF Forum.

Then I would suggest to change to title to "k2pdfopt: usage, help and issues (optimize PDFs for eReaders)"

Imo, at the moment it rather expresses "optimizes PDFs for viewing on e-readers" which is also what briss is doing

If I used your suggested title, then new users would not necessarily know what k2pdfopt does. The title tells what k2pdfopt does, which is most important for me. Since the first word in the title is k2pdfopt, I figured it would be self-evident the thread is all about k2pdfopt and not other similar software. Again, that is the point of the sticky thread section in the PDF forum--to point out various useful PDF software as it relates to e-reading, where you will find the Briss thread.

Hi, Im new to this great software, I have a question, even though -bp is not selected, I still get the page break every time the source page ends. I´m using a 300pp Paperwhite so I figured the Voyage option would be fine. Here are the source and the output shown in the software:
