Top of serif fonts displaying on wrong page...

I have an ePub (converted from an Amazon MOBI) that is displaying weird on my Kobo (where it's been converted to Kepub). I'm not sure if I should be posting this in the ePub or Kobo section.

Anyway, I have a book and at the page breaks, the tops of the serif fonts on the next page are displaying at the bottom of the current page. See below screenshots:




Notice that the top of the 'b' in 'bus' and the 'd' in 'driver' and 'did' appear at the bottom of the first screen and are chopped off of the top of the second.

I've edited ePubs with Sigil many times, so I'm not a newbie, but I'm far from an expert. I'm guessing line height is less than font height somewhere in the style sheet. Might that be it? Should I check something else?

Could be various things. Stylesheet seems the most probable culprit, but it could also be some tag in your XHTML that is causing havoc. Can you post the code for that specific paragraph?

It is a fault in the KePub reader, which doesn't handle the page break properly at narrow line spacing settings. To avoid it you can increase the line spacing a bit (how much seems to depend on which font is used), or load the book as an ePub instead -- the ePub reader doesn't suffer this problem.

Yeah, yesterday I nearly dropped my Aura and caught it by grabbing the screen. Since Pinch To Zoom was enabled, my font settings went loco. This was coincidentally as I started a new book.

I loaded up my last book and a cursory glance showed it didn't *seem* to be doing it, which is why I suspected it was this particular book. But I did readjust line spacing after I posted last night and that seemed to help (this was midnight, so I wasn't too thorough).

I'll read the book through the day. If the problem persists, when I get home and have access to the ePub and Sigil, I'll post some of the code along with the stylesheet, to see if there are some obvious coding errors.

At least I finally disabled Pinch To Zoom, a feature I'm unlikely to ever use. For the way I use my device, it can only have bad results.

To Toxaris: Every paragraph is doing this. Not just one or two.

I also reported a bug to Kobo (at least I think it was Kobo) where content was shown on the next page if you reduced certain margins below the default. (I forget if it was the margin on body, html, or @page.) So if it isn't the line height, perhaps they never fixed that bug.

Is this still a problem if you turn off full-screen mode in the patch?
