Screensize & sort by author
I am creating some pdf files (from latex) to read on the DR800. Does anyone know the exact screensize of the device (in width x height)? That would be very useful to specifiy in the document creation process.
On a completly seperate question: The reader has a "sort by author" view. After using it for some time, the view seems to sort by the first word that is specified as author. This doesn't seem to be very useful to me, as most of the time the authors are specified in the metadata as "firstname lastname". It appears that the reader thus orders the books by the author's firstname. Does anyone know the real algorithm that the reader uses for sorting? Is the only way to get proper sorting by lastname to change the author metadata to something like "lastname, firstname"?

The exact screensize, available for the user, is 768 x 981 pixels.
The "author" is derived from what ever information is added to the pdf file. It uses the metadata embedded in the pdf file. Not every "author" is consistent entering the correct value.... hence the somewhat strange sorting sometimes, depending on your content. There are a few programs around, that you can use to edit the filedata of your pdf files. There was a thread in on this forum a few months ago, with some links to these programs.
