I started with a scan of a book which was a two-column PDF, I then used the
gs methods outlined in this thread to put the PDF into single page format, which worked great. This looks good on the PC screen but when I transfer the PDF to my Kindle (3rd generation) the
fit-to-screen option chops off around 10-20% from the bottom of most pages, whereas the
actual size option is far to big for the screen.
Is there a solution to this? should I be using different parameters than
-g4210x5950 when I do the original splitting with
gs? or can I just resize the PDF (or its margins) I have already generated such that it is a good size for the Kindle screen? If so, what is the size I need for a 3rd gen Kindle screen.
I want to rescale the single page pdf to correct kindle size (perhaps with
gs), not convert. Alternatively add margins/borders so kindle fit-to-screen works without chopping ends.
(I should say I've tried Amazon's free converter etc, but ideally I would like to keep the PDF format rather than convert, as the document is technical and the conversion doesn't seem particularly reliable. I would rather just resize the PDF/PDFmargins and keep the existing formatting if possible).
