As I said earlier, I'm still rooted. There's no way (AFAIK) to install another reader on an un-rooted Nook; all my observations about Perfect Viewer etc. are on a rooted Nook.Leonardo wrote:Hi Gegs, I mean zooming the PDF not only the text size.

AFAICS tapping on the display (non rooted version) doesn't do anything (just opens the bottom menu with contents, find, go to, text and more), but no way at the moment to zoom a image.
As I said at the moment I'm using the default viewer and not others, did you install "Perfect Viewer" on a rooted device or you were able to install on the original rom?
Useful steps for a good rooted Nook experience:
1) Root your Nook using Nook Manager
2) Install NTGAppsAttack using the instructions here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthr ... ?t=2086582
3) Use SearchMarket to find and install the following apps:
- No Frills CPU Control - to underclock or overclock the Nook. Set Governor to "ondemand" and I/O scheduler to "noop".
- Button Savior - This creates a collapsible row of buttons on the right of the screen with a "home" icon that allows you to choose any other launchers.
- ADW Launcher - a great and easy to understand launcher for those familiar with Android. The apps screen is reachable by touching the bottom icon on the home screen of ADW Launcher (six squares within a circle). This is MUCH faster than ReLaunch and can be activated by opening the row of Button Savior icons, clicking the home icon (in Button Savior) and choosing ADW Launcher from the list of installed launchers. It will probably appear as a selectable launcher each time you boot, but you'll need to use Button Savior to launch it thereafter, if switching from the B&N screen for example, or launch it as an app from ReLaunch.
- FX File Explorer and the FX File Explorer root addon. After installing these you will be able to mount the /system/app folder as read/write and can rename TelephonyProvider.apk to TelephonyProvider.old and Phone.apk to Phone.old. These use a huge amount of power keeping the Nook in phone standby - even though it can't be used as a phone.
- Dropbox - this allows you to save files to your Dropbox account, access and install them on your Nook without attaching cables. You can also save ePubs directly from Project Gutenberg to your Dropbox account by clicking on the Dropbox icon on PG and authorising the upload the first time you do it. Selecting the file in Dropbox on your Nook will automatically download it to the /My Files/Books folder on the SD card and add it to the library.
- Forums are full of people who have trouble reading PDFs on the Nook. The best PDF reader I've found is APV PDF Viewer Pro. You can easily lock it to landscape or portrait. There are 3 semi-transparent zoom buttons at the bottom of the screen when viewing PDFs - Zoom in, Zoom out and a middle button that fits page to screen width. It sounds just like the app you want.
