    Cannot change font size

      I purchased a book recently, but I can't change the font size on my nook color or on my iphone.  The font is so small that I can't even see it on the iphone.  I can still read it on my nook color, but I prefer something bigger than the smallest font available.  I don't have this issue with any other books that I have purchased.  It is really annoying though.  Has anyone else had this issue before?  Is there a fix?  I purchased the book from the Barnes and Noble site if that makes any difference.

          This happens with some books, and this has to do with the way the ePub file is made. Some ePub files do not allow the ereader to change the font.

          As far as I know the only fix is to remove the DRM and use an ePub editor to edit the ePub file.

            Thanks for the advise.  I tried rechecking and unchecking the publisher defaults to no avail.  I guess I'm stuck with tiny print.  The print is so small I can't even see the words on my iphone.  I hope this little glitch gets addressed in the future.

              I have found it is actually a bug in the nook color's handling of PDF files.  We own both a old e-ink nook and a newer nook color and the nook color is much inferior in the handling or resizing text.
