You can use Sigil to change the margins and border by changing the style file. If you have many files to change, you might be better of using Calibre's EPUB to EPUB conversion and setting the margins for the output file to your liking. If you don't have access to these tools and know about CSS, you can also unzip the EPUB files, change the style sheet by ...

As long as you uploaded that specific book to google play books (in contrast to buying it on that platform) you can simply download it as a epub/pdf file using Adobe Digital Editions. A detailed tutorial on this procedure can be found at Google Play Help.

Aldiko book reader is a really good app that has the most of the features you require.

So I solved this issue by converting epub file to mobi format (mobi is the format kindle uses) and then converting back to epub. After doing this, google books didn't have issues processing it. There are multiple online converters you can use.

For Linux you need to run ADE in Vine. On this page there is a pdf and a video that I made for my library on using ebooks via ADE for Linux users. FWIW, I had trouble getting ADE to detect ereaders on Linux ( ubuntu). Your mileage may vary. Good hunting!

First, what type of Kindle do you have? Do you have e-ink device or a Kindle tablet (i.e, Kindle Fire)? If you have a Kindle tablet, then I recommend that you view the file with a PDF reader app instead of using the Kindle app. If there is a cloud-based app, that is even better. File size is another problem -- PDF readers can typically read larger PDF ...

Initial things to try: Have you used an epub validator to confirm that it is a valid epub? Is the file encrypted in some way? (Can you view it in a browser or readium or Adobe Digital Editions)? Was the upload interrupted? I would remove and try again. In my experience though, GPB has been pretty reliable for valid epubs.

The checkmark in the blue circle means that this book has been downloaded to your device (if you'll notice, it's the same icon as the download notification in the top left). The books without the checkmark are ones that you have purchased (or uploaded) and are available for download. The reason that they're currently grayed out is that you're not currently ...

Methods for estimating page count for ebooks depend on a variety of things and don't really indicate anything. Different ebook distributors use different ISBNs. It used to be that print publishers would have a single ISBN. Nowadays, when you publish on a distributor's platform they will tend to assign an ISBN specific to the store. Google Play stores ...

Yes, this is possible. Just now I went through exactly the process you describe in your question.

It's very common for the listing for publisher to be the company that formatted and produced the ebook. I wouldn't read too much significance into that. Sometimes this conversion services just duplicate everything -- though it is peculiar that it doesn't include some identification on the title page. Booksmart is the name of an application for blurb.com. ...

If you have Android, you may find an older version of the application online which supports it. I can confirm that version 3.16.1 is working fine.

Google Play does supply non DRMed books. I have bought ebooks from Google Play published by Baen who have never had DRM and I can downloaded them as .epub with no DRM. It is up to the publisher and not the store to decide if the book is encumbered with DRM. If a store says something is DRMed and it should not be ie the publisher says it is not then you ...

Looks like my Ghostery browser extension was messing with the site. I was able to pause it and reattempt and found the notes made their way through. I drilled down into the trackers that were blocked, one was "Site Analytics: Google Analytics" another was "Advertising: Technorati". It was the Technorati tracker that was required for the GPB notes features to ...

It happened to me with an .acsm file, but from a different store (it was Kobo); I managed to resolve this problem by downloading the file again, and Adobe Digital Editions was able to import it. I don't really know what really happened in the background, maybe some error prevented the creation of a valid .acsm file; I can't guarantee that this will help you, ...

2 possible solutions or workarounds. First, if viewing GPB in a web browser, it is easier to highlight text on more than one page. (I was able to do it). Second, one workaround on a device might be to reduce text size to the smallest possible size, so that the maximum amount of text is on one book page.

As far as I can tell (my Italian is mostly restricted to things you need to know to understand training instructions), you cannot send PDF files, but only the indicated formats (.doc, .docx, .rtf, .htm, .html, .txt, .zip , .x-zip, .mobi). Try removing the images from the file before direct uploading PDF, convert to a supported format (.mobi e.g. with ...

Converting an EPUB book to a PDF file is usually a bad idea, unless you want to print the book. Install Calibre, add the EPUB, remove the DRM, convert it to an AZW3 book and have Calibre send the book to your Kindle via USB cable. If you still want to use the PDF file, you'll have to copy it to the Kindle documents folder via a USB cable because Kindle ...

Many epub apps don't render ebooks in Indic languages correctly. However, there's one more thing that you could try. Open your epub with Sigil or Calibre Editor and add the following parameters to the paragraph section of the main stylesheet: p { /* more entries */ /* more entries */ orphans: 2; widows: 2; } This should theoretically fix ...

Like all new CSS specifications, hyphenation is a mess. I spent hours trying to disable hyphens in my titles for an Epub file viewed in Microsoft Edge. I've finally found a solution. My reference comes from this MDN entry, but you need to note (in typical Microsoft fashion) that the presentation is only complete in its examples, not in its definition. My ...

To reset the progress you made in a book, just go to the begining and start reading again. The next time you open the book it would show you the new location at which you stopped reading.

Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) is necessary for you to read e-books that have Digital Rights Management (DRM) attached. After installing ADE, you will be prompted to login with or to create an Adobe ID, but don't worry, it's free.
