Tips, Tricks, and Troubleshooting (Kindle) / Convert from PDF
« on: December 26, 2017, 01:11:51 AM »
I have some software manuals in PDF format that I am trying to convert to a suitable format for a Kindle reader. I have tried 2 online converters so far (pdf2kindle and online-convert) and they both give similar results. The text in the PDF is on 2 columns on each page, but the converter has ignored the column structure and has alternately read a line from each column. How crazy is that! Is there a better converter somewhere?

By the way, I wouldn't care too much if the converter ignores images and just ends up with the text in the resulting document. But the text needs to be decently formatted and legible.

Suddenly my Kindle library now contains 17 additional items, Kindle Guides in different languages, all apparently added yesterday.  Why?

If I delete them, will they return or not?

Tips, Tricks, and Troubleshooting (Kindle) / Light stays on permanently
« on: August 31, 2013, 05:30:42 PM »
After 3 weeks of use, my Kindle Paperwhite now won't power down properly, i.e. the light stays on after turning the device off.  Instead of turning it off I now just leave it on all the time and activate the screen saver when it is not in use.  A permanent blank lit screen would probably drain the battery as well shorten the life of the device.

I'm trying to create a Reading Page, but it won't accept some of the ASINs, e.g. B007UK83S4 and B00ABLJ0WW.
