GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 335183
"fit page width" should fit to text width, not margins
Last modified: 2006-03-20 09:27:04 UTC
[I'm using the 0.4.0 package from Ubuntu Breezy]
The "fit to page width" option includes the page margins when calculating the zoom level. This leaves a lot of wasted space on either side. It would be nice if there was an option to crop closer to the actual text width.
As an example, have a look at this research paper:
When "fit to page width" is selected, it looks something like:
______ A line of text here. ________
Adjusting the zoom level manually is a reasonable workaround, but it would
be nice if I could get to the following without a lot of manual tweaking:
__ A line of text here. __
An even better solution might be to zoom in until you reach a "natural" point size for reading at the monitor's specified DPI -- the real problem is that the font is often too large or too small for easy skimming for each new document.
Thanks, we're already tracking this request in Bug 169676.
