I use evince in two page mode as an ebook viewer. Most ebook have a broad rim. I can't cut out this useless rim in two page mode, and consequently, both double pages are shifted to the right side. I can correct this by using the stroke keys, but every time I scroll to the next double page, the ebook is shifted to the right side once again. That is enervating!

It would make much more sense, if evince could centralice the ebook! This would make evince much better for ebook reading.

I second this feature wish. It is not only related to ebooks but to "normal" pdfs (e.g. scientific papers) with margins as well. 

The simplest way to do it would be to have a configuration panel where the user could specify how much margin he wants evince to "eat" on each side of the page.
Some visuale hackery or automatic detection would also be nice, but are not essential.


PS. This is a feature Acrobat Reader does not have!
