I own a Nook 1st Edition and a Nook Color. I recently got a Nook Simple Touch. I've had a book on the other two devices for about a year now and never had any problems with it. But when I registered my Simple Touch and downloaded my library onto it, I started having troubles with this one book in particular.
While the book displays fine on my 1st Ed. and my Color, on the Simple Touch I have these ridiculously large margins. The text only occupies about 1/3 or 1/4 of the screen, the rest being taken up by the margins. With the text setting on the third from the left, of a possible seven, it will only fit 2-3 words per line. This makes reading the book quite unconfortable.
I've tried turning on/off Publisher Defaults, but this hasn't changed anything. The margins are already set to their most narrow setting, so messing with them further only makes the problem worse. I've tried archiving and unarchiving repeatedly, but I still have the exact same problem. It's really strange, because the book displays just fine on my 1st Ed. And on the Color, which has adjustable margins, the most narrow setting allows the text to stretch to the edges of the screen. So why does it do this on my Simple Touch? It doesn't do this to any of my other books.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Some publishers seem to set their fonts and formats in a locked-down way such that you can't override them. The only solution I have found is to use Calibre to convert it to an editable file type and reformat it. This would require stripping the DRM, the legality of which has been debated.
