I need help with epub page numbers, I use Calibre in order to read those books, and the paging is wierd, in a usual 180 pages, Calibre shows 500 pages, and the paging goes 1,0, 1,3, 1,5, until it gets to page 2,0 etc. Today I've downloaded a book which usually doesn't take more than 400 pages and it showed 1257 pages. But for references for an academic work it's kind of crazy to use such numbers for books that are so small. Does anyone here know how to read epub pages or how to show them correctly as in pdf or paper form?
I have found a post on an epub forum which uses a lot of combinations I couldn't understand yet I knew it talks about a program I am searching for, here's the post, apparently I want his problem to happen to me:
I have a DRM free ePub I have bought where I cannot change the margin, when I select the margin in my Kobo Touch it does nothing (I have not this problem with other books).
Is there a way, with Calibre or another software, to fix this?
Another thing: this ePub has a strange way for page numbers. Instead of showing page numbers per chapter as some other ePub books, it shows page numbers as if this was a printed version. I mean I see the page number in the margin, and this does not fit well with my Kobo. For instance I can have the page 12, and the page 13 is in the middle of the next page on my Kobo. If you see what I mean. Any way to fix this as well?"
