I am new to my nook, and have just established how to download to my documents in the menu. The text as it was set up, is absolutely tiny. I only have occasional need to use wordprocessing applications, so my skills are small in that area, but it seems that in some way, I should be able to change the font size. I am just wondering how best to go about it (transfer to particular software to convert and transfer back?), and if the page turn feature would impact what I can and can't do with it. Does anyone have any advice or how to help docs?

Just in case anyone reads this looking for similar info, I was alerted to using Calibre software (free download). You can import virtually any file type, you tell it what type of e reader you are using, and it will convert to more user friendly formats (you need to know what that is for your unit, example: epub). After file extension conversion, you can choose the font size. I am sure that there is more involved, but that is what has worked for me so far.

Calibre is very helpful, but it does have a bit of a learning curve. There is a very helpful forum that covers Calibre at MobileRead -- HERE.

Changing formats with Calibre is easy to do, as long as the file does not have DRM. I use an Ectaco Jetbook Lite, and it's helpful to specify the screen dimensions when converting, for instance.
