Fixed margins in public library books - Upcountrygirl - 29 Jun 2016 10:56 AM

Hi All,
My elderly mother has a Kobo Arc on which I regularly download books from the public library. As she's registered blind I have to put the font size up very large and set the margins to zero, and she can just about read them.

However some books seem to come with fixed margins and you just can't alter them. Result: a strip of text approx 6 letters wide, surrounded by white space. Does anyone know how I can override these margins? I've been told I might be able to edit them with Calibre, but I coudn't get it to access the DRM-protected library books.
Would be really really grateful for help on this as the books are Mum's main source of entertainment.
Many thanks in anticipation.

Hi
I am having similar problems so have emailed Kobo support people
This is their email contact
help@kobobooks.com
Hope something is resolved for you-I am getting the top line of text omitted every other page. My books are also downloaded from the public library and I also have larger font size.
