Hi,
has anyone had any problems with reading ePub version? On my PocketBook Aqua it's completly unreadable. Font is extremly small and it cannot be zoomed in or enlarged. Other MEAP ePubs run fine. Can you please check what is different with this one ?

Hi Damian
We have made a review of the PocketBook Reader app and came to conclusion that this app can't read the font size value "pt" like most of the other apps. This app can only scale the relative values "em". We are in process of improving our conversion process. We also sent a letter to manufacturer to make them improve their app as well. This app can't present the code lines <code> which is something that authors of the these type books don't appreciate. Hopefully after next update you will have a better reading experience. If you have chance to use some other apps rather then built in version of PocketBook, please do.

On Koreader (an alternative app to read books on Kobo-devices) the font also turns up very small by default. Luckily this can be changes by the reader, but this is different from other epubs.
