Default Best Page Size For epub ...

Purchased PPX6 to help my daughter publish some of her writing (She sends me doc file, I input into PPX6).

Trying to determine what page size would work best for the average tablet.

I am beginning to think that 6" wide and 10" tall works best on her tablet (7" Lenovo), but that's only one of hundreds of different tablets so probably not indicative of most tablets.

Anyone else have a favorite size page --- and why?

Thanks.

Page size really doesn't matter when designing a reflowable ePub. That said, I usually use a 6" x 9" page size just to keep a sense in my mind of what text/images *may* be viewable on any given "page." Really, I am looking at the ratio of text to image size.

Excellent idea!

So, I was on the wrong path thinking actual size as opposed to proportion. Now I can get on with the layout of a book I want to bring into an epub.

Thanks!
