how to change the font size in pdf file?

when I open the pdf file, the font size is always small, and if I use zoom button, it will zoom the font size, but it's only a little bit, and will miss some word in the beginning and end of sentence. change the preference in the reader setting is no effort.

But open the epub file is different story, it runs very well to the size I want and no missing any words.

Any recommendation?

All the best!

Change the screen orientation of the reader to Landscape.

ezPDF Reader does an excellent job of resizing PDFs on the tablet side (in either Portrait or Landscape) by double tapping, and then pulling up the Menu and select Fitting to Text Column and Lock Horizontal Scroll. PDFs cover about 90% of the screen and are very readable. In fact, ezPDF will even read the PDF to you if the Pico Language Pack is installed. ezPDF Reader is one of the best Apps I have used. Here are some links in case you are interested.


ezPDF Reader http://www.forum-bec.com/f244/ezpdf-...android-37856/ FileSonic, select Slow Download.


Android PICO Installer Language Pack (Not an App. Works with other Apps like ezPDF reader).

Try pressing View(at least I think its view, it may be another menu item though) and then Re-flow, it doesn't work for every pdf file but for the ones it works for it will make them display more like an epub. If the pdf you are viewing doesn't support the re-flow option I'm not sure there is anything you can do, though someone else might know more...

Thanks.

That's the one. I used to press zoom button to do zoom function, and not think about any other menu item on it.

Yes, it reflow the font very well.

now my daughter love it, since I used it to connect my NAS at home(other ebook read lack of), and read the books at eink side. Now she sit at her table to learn how to draw animal. the drawback is the short time of battery. and other is I should by the edge not pocket edge, but anyway it's good at moment.

I too prefer to read PDFs on the e-Ink side but , the PDF reflow works good for some PDFs but not others. That's where ezPDF comes in. Enjoy your Edge.
