PRS-650 Parts of pages missing
#1  Budman66 12-16-2020, 03:52 PM
I have an interesting dilemma that I could not find the answer to so I started a new thread. I am new to this forum so I do apologize in advance if the answer is here and I just didn't see it. Ok my problem, on my PRS-650 when reading this particular book I am using the L size font. When I change to the next page you can tell that the flow of the story has been disrupted as it doesn't make sense. I have to reduce the font size down to M and find where I turned teh page and then the missing lines are there. My question is why does this happen. Sometimes it can be upwards of a paragraph it is kind of annoying and I would leave the font at M but the size is a bit small for me and L works best. The book is in Epub format. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated I have attached the book I am currently reading

The solution to your problem is to BUY the ePub version of this eBook.

I've had that same issue. Usually with books from independent publishers. If I make the font tiny, all of it is there. Larger font and I can lose words or even close to a paragraph. I've never been able to figure out why.

Sometimes if I convert EPUB to EPUB in Calibre it helps. Sometimes it does not.

If you can find an eBook that shows this issue, if the eBook is in copyright, use the ScrambleEbook plugin to scramble the contents. Then try it and if it also shows the problem, please post it and I'll take a look at the CSS and code and see if I can figure out what might be wrong.

It's books from a certain author. I think it's an issue on her end. I can put the same ebook on my 950 and read every line. On the T2, I lose parts.

I'm sure it's an issue in the code, it always happens at the end of a chapter.

I have exactly the same problem on most of my books that are epub from the local library. Any ideas please?
