Output profile for iPad Pro 2017 12.9

Hi all,

I am converting TO PDF, so I can read my book on my iPad Pro 2017 12.9" tablet, and annotate using PDF Expert which I love.

The iPad's specs are: Display size 12.9-inch, Display resolution 2732 × 2048 px, Pixel density 264 ppi.

Which Output Profile should I use? "iPad 3" (2048x1536)? "Default Output Profile" (1600x1200)? Or maybe just "Tablet"?

Regards,

Avi

If there is not a profile exactly matching your device, you can simply specify the page size manually in the PDF Output section of the conversion dialog.

Thank you (for the software, and for answering here).

So, just use "a4"? No need to specify the device's resolution?

As for the output profile, select tablet so Calibre will not resize any hi-res images.

Use a paper size that looks best on your device, you might have to experiment witha few sizes to find what suits your best.
