Thumbnail Image Distorted and Font Size Sigil
I wonder if anyone can help with a couple of problems I am having creating an epub with Sigil. I have tried Sigil V0.3.4 and V0.4.2. Using Win7, IE9.
• The thumbnail of the cover image is missing more than half the image as it has slid over to the left when I view in Adobe Digital Editions. But when I view the full cover in ADE the image is all there centred correctly. I have used an image 590 X 750 and tried both 300dpi and 96dpi. I have even tried to change the cover image in Calibre to see if that worked, but same issue (By the way, I have used the same cover to create a Mobi prc in Mobipocket creator, and the cover thumbnail is fine. But when I convert to epub in Calibre there are white spaces at the top and bottom).
• When I prepare the epub in Sigil, the font size is quite small, and cannot be adjusted in ADE. The font size when a prc is produced using Mobi Creator (using the same HTML) is larger and when I convert it to epub it remains that way and can be adjusted in ADE. How can I make the sigil produced fonts adjustable in a reader?

Read the sticky section devoted to this in the EPUB forum.
Text/margins not resizing: You probably use fixed sizing: px, in, cm
Switch to a relative size: I use 1.2em as my base size which provides me a nice size at zoom level 3 (of 5) on my 5" device (old engineering trick, default to the middle of the control setting)
