Bookshelf Application for iOS eTextBook Reader Display Preferences

How do I change the way the eTextBook displays in the Bookshelf iOS application?

Each eTextBook has Reader Preferences that allow you to change the eTextBook look by giving options to manipulate the eTextBook's text and overall look of the eTextBook. In addition, allow you to change the Highlighter options and share them or follow other's Highlights.

Please note: what is shown below is while viewing an eTextBook that is Reflowable (ePub) formated. At the end of the article, we show the Reader Display Preferences for a Fixed (Pbk) eTextBook format.


How do I get to the Reader Display Preferences in an eTextBook?

You will select the following icon to open the Reader Preferences in an eTextBook and verify that "Display" is underlined.




What are the different options in the Reader Display Preferences?

You can manipulate the text size, type of font, background color, margins, and spacing between the lines of text.
