Old topic update:

Dirk Paehl (author of GUIPDFTK, among other programs) also makes 64 bit Sumatra PDF compiles available for download from http://www.paehl.com/open_source/?SumatraPDF.

Nikkhokkho (of FileOptimizer fame) also offers his somewhat outdated SumatraPDFOpt (previously mentioned at http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/ ... 951#p57951) at http://nikkhokkho.sourceforge.net/stati ... atraPDFOpt.

The following is stated at Xhmikosr's Sumatra builds page:

It should also be noted that SumatraPDF is a very capable eBook (.ebook) reader as well. It's good to have this software even if you have another bloated PDF Viewer installed/in use such as: Foxit, Acrobat, or PDF-XChange.

I've been very interested in being able to comfortably read ebooks on my machine lately and I've not been super happy with Sumatra's ebook reader. The text looks (to me) over-dense and it's not customizable (unless there's been some improvement in the new version).

Foxit has a fairly good reader mode with an available "night mode", though it doesn't support EPUB:

The search continues I guess.

Change the font or just it's size?

It's more the spacing between sentences - would be nice to be able to modify that.

I didn't see options for font and sizing, but I just found the INI editor in Advanced Settings. Normally I don't mind INI edits, but when you're trying to visualize something, changing the INI and restarting the program repeatedly to see if it looks right is a little tedious. But you're right -- it is more customizable than I let on.
