I use a Sony PRS-650 and I often create PDF files for it with LibreOffice. These are usually documents which I read only once and I don't care about portability. (I don't read them on other devices and I'm able to change the page size if I need to.)

What page size should I set in LibreOffice to see exactly the same layout (and avoid resizing of the pages) on my PC and PRS-650? (Please note that there is a status line at the bottom of the screen on PRS-650 with battery charging indicator etc.)

    Isn't this question too localized? The same question could be asked for any of the myriad other ebook readers.

  • Do you want to know the screen size in pixels, minus the status bar, or the size in inches/mm minus the status bar?

  • @JasonDown: LibreOffice supports inches/mm, but pixels are also interesting.

I don't know if this is exact enough, but based on a combination of my own manual measurements and specifications listed in the user guide (warning links to pdf directly):

  • Screen resolution is 600(w) x 800(h) pixels
  • Screen measurements (approx, done myself) are 92(w) x 122(h) mm
  • Using this calculator, that gives us a dpi of approx 44.
  • Approx measurement of status bar is 5mm (using same calculator as above we get ~33 pixels)


  • Readable screen height is 600(w) x 767(h) pixels or 92(w) x 118(h) mm
