Taerak's Void
(Book One of Fantastica)
A new series by multiple award winning author, M. R. Mathias

After finding a strange medallion and some maps with markings that no one in his village can understand, Braxton Bray decides to take it all to the Hall of Scholars in the kingdom's capital. But greed is everywhere. Braxton and a tough young female caravan guard named Nixy are forced to run for their lives, for someone else wants what Braxton found and is willing to go to great lengths to take it from him.

With a hefty, kingdom wide, bounty on their heads, not even the great wizards of the Sorcerious can help them. Left with nothing but each other, Braxton and Nixy have no choice but to get on a ship and go on an adventure that will take them places they would have otherwise never imagined. Elves, dwarves, giant gothicans, and trolls, treacherous forests on distant shores, love, death, terror, and magic all await...

Fixed line spacing probem with Kobo Glo (finally)
« on: March 28, 2017, 08:12:40 PM »
I just discovered this last weekend how to fix the Kobo software problem with line spacing on ePubs (thanks to help from Mobileread forums). So I'm back to using the Kobo Glo in addition to my Kindle Voyage. The Glo (it's an old one) is noticeably slower on page turns than the Voyage, but I can live with that.

The software on the Kobo won't win any awards, but it has a lot more formatting features than the Voyage does.

Edit: The line spacing problem referred to is that side-loaded ePubs could not have the line spacing adjusted, and led to many, many books having double- and triple-spaced lines, or lines that nearly touched. Hard to read that way.

What you see depends mainly on what you are looking for.

The page turns on the Kobo Glo HD, compared to the Voyage, are agonizingly S-L-O-W!😭

Haha. Yeah, I see that too. Good thing I read so slow. On the upside, the Kobo Glo HD lighting seems so much better to me than the Voyages.

slightly off topic but this helped immensely with any spacing probs i had...That little bit of extra real estate makes up for some room taken up by spacing for me. I just added this line of code which took 10 seconds and it added a on off option for header/footer in my Kobo settings. Did the trick for me (and no loss in speed):

NP. Worked instantly on the Kobo Aura One and my Kobo Glo HD. Suprises me they didn't just enable it. Having full screen is awesome.
