    Hello,
    I have an A4 document only with text. Is it possible to reduce the size of the pages eg with reducing the amount of words per line?

    Thank you in advance.

    Best regards

    That depends on how the document was created. If it was created specifically to allow "reflow," some PDF readers (not sure about any of the ones on Android) will reformat on the fly to allow a larger font size and still keep the lines short enough to fit on the screen. Most PDF files are not created to allow reflow, however, and those you can only view in exactly the formatting you'd see on your desktop/laptop computer.

    Thank you for your answer.

    I have found out that is FBreader which can read ebooks. So then I was looking for how can I convert pdf files to ebook and finally I have found calibre (
    calibre - E-book management ) which can convert pdf files and other file formats to different ebooks formats. Both software are also available for Linux.

    At the moment I have not figure out which ebook format is the best.

    Do you know a better ebook reader and converter?
