iBooks Display Issue
I am a newcomer to the iPad2 so please be patient. I recently attempted to convert a test pdf file [a car club newsletter originally created in MS Publisher with multiple columns and embedded pictures] to ePub format. I used several of the free-to-try converters on the web. I found that a straight text conversion does not work as the resulting ePub file's formatting is lost. So I tried what these programs call an image or picture conversion. This worked, but the resulting pages only emcompassed less than one-half of the available screen [1 inch margins on 3 sides, 1.375 on the bottom] on my iPad2, making the images unreadable. I learned that by double-tapping each image I could make it [slightly] larger but still not really legible. And this feature [?] disabled vertical page scrolling. I cannot figure out how to show these images in full screen and still scroll through the newsletter. I am using IOS5 and iBooks 1.5.
To further confuse matters, today I received an email from one of the vendors of the converters that I tried. Sophia of Doeremisoft says that they converted my pdf file, which I emailed to them, to ePub and displayed it full screen on an iPad with no problems. She suggested that there is something wrong in my iBooks settings.
As I originally stated, I am quite the novice here. This is my first Apple or IOS device. Does anyone have an idea how to fix this issue? It is important because I would like to convert a 130+ technical book [lots of pictures, charts, etc] that I have in pdf for sale on Amazon.com, and they require ePub format. Thanks for your thoughts, hopefully the answer is simple.

For ePub issues you might find more experts in the ePub forum.

iBooks can display PDF documents directly. If that's all you want, just keep the original PDF and read that.
