How to adjust the documents on the screen of e-readers

If the PDF does not fit correctly on the screen of the reader, you can use the tool Briss to trim the margins (you can obtain more information in Spanish at: Engadget).

This tool, cross-platform and compatible with Windows, Linux and Mac, provides a quick and easy PDF ready to be loaded to the reader. The procedure to obtain it is:

  1. Import of the PDF
  2. Viewing an image with all the pages in the document, to see what can be cut without a loss of information (margins, footer, etc.)
  3. Selection of the areas that want to be maintained
  4. Automatic trimming of pages (according to the selected selection)
  5. Activation of the menu Action > Preview to view the final PDF
