Understanding Kindle display technology
Your Kindle uses a high-resolution display technology called electronic paper. The display is
reflective, which means you can read it clearly even in bright sunlight. Electronic paper uses
ink just like books and newspapers, but it displays the ink particles electronically.
On occasion, your screen may appear to flash. This is part of the process of updating the e-
reader display. By default, your Kindle features fast, smooth page turns, minimising the
number of flashes. To refresh the page with every page turn, tap the Menu button and select
Settings. On the Settings page, select Reading Options and use the Page Refresh setting to
set your preference. For manga refresh settings, tap the Menu button when reading a manga
book and select the Page Refresh On/Off setting.
Customising your text display
Your Kindle provides a quick way to adjust the appearance of books and periodicals. To
access those settings when reading, tap the top of the screen to bring up the toolbars, then
tap the Text button (Aa). A dialog box will appear that lets you change the font size,
typeface, line spacing and margins of the content on the Kindle screen. The Publisher Font
option is available in select books that include the ability to view the fonts embedded by the
publisher. You may be prompted to update your Kindle if new fonts are available.
Comic and manga books
Comic and manga books come alive with Kindle Panel View. To enter Kindle Panel View,
double-tap the screen. To navigate through the panels, swipe your finger across the screen
or tap the sides of the screen. To exit Kindle Panel View, double-tap the screen again. For
manga refresh settings, tap the Menu item when reading a manga book and select the Page
Refresh On/Off setting.
Some Kindle books for children feature Kindle Text Pop-Up for reading text over images.
You can navigate between Text Pop-Up sections by swiping your finger across the screen or
tapping the sides of the screen. Select children's books will open in this view automatically.
To exit Text Pop-Up and return to normal reading, double-tap the screen.
Zooming in on images
You can increase the size of an image in a Kindle book for easier viewing. Press and hold
your finger on the image and then release to display a magnifying glass icon, then tap on the
