I reverted to 05 since the font i use (bookerly) seems to go not too well with 07 proximity of words. Also i read on the bigger side of font setting. Less 20 lines per page/screen on my libra 2. Not sure if setting the fonts bigger than usual affect it but i would tend to think so.

Certainly. I have 32 lines of text on the screen of my Libra. And the font I use (LexiaDama) is narrower than Bookerly.

I set my Libra to 07. The Sage is on 06 as it has a larger screen, so less need to space the words tightly.

With KePub, I have 39 lines.
With ePub, I have 42 lines.

Can't do that on a Kindle and have the text be readable.

I just gave Bookerly a try and yes, it does not look all that good at -0.07. How well does it look at -0.06?

I tried -.06 and the words are too close together. I actually use -04 before i saw your "-07 post" but then decided to revert back to -05. -05 is the sweet spot for bookerly and at my preferred font size.

ChareInk does work well at -0.07, I did see how Bookerly looks too close.

I've tried some other fonts. Amasis and Caecilia look good. Georgia and Avenir Next, not so good.
