Page Margins and Line Height

Hello all,

I've been searching around the forums here and haven't found anything regarding page margins & line height updated for the Kindle Voyage (or even PW3).

I know the readers.pref method doesn't work anymore for the KV; however, is there a replacement hack?

Also looking for a line height hack to (further) shrink the spacing between lines if possible.

Thanks so much.

Just wrote a response to essentially this question in here:

https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...24&postcount=7

TLDR; is - nope, because Amazon sees it a as an asset to tightly control their reading environments, and they dont like them to be fuzzed around with.

The corresponding files are not only highly "gated", they also respond quite fast to devs trying to get a sense of them and changed them consequently in the past.

Also their most current reading environment (parser) is closed off for anyone but Amazon to use. They already have marketed some of the features in there as "Amazon exclusives" (you have to let Amazon create the ebook file itself to make use of them - no way around it).

You can lower the line height by using my modified version of Charis SIL. All you do is either jailbreak and install the font hack or embed in your eBooks. The fonts have had the weight increased and the metadata modified to reduce the line height on Kindles.

@JSWolf: Creative workaround, thanks. Downloaded it right away.

Whenever I try to phrase a general outlook and sense of why there might be regression in the featureset, there comes someone with a little hack, that props open another loophole..

*hrmpf*

It's also a nice looking font.

Yeah, there's an entry dedicated to that kind of font tweaks in the Fonts hack FAQ (which also bundles extra examples of how to tweak the font size on a font by font basis, which is pretty much necessary if you mix TTF and CFF fonts).

Your welcome.
With a bit more practice, we might even turn into a 'for fee' help site.
