If I am not mistaken (and I could be, as I do not have a Touch), but I think I heard that you pinch your fingers together & then open them?

I hope someone comes along that can help you. =)

I think you're asking about the right justification of words in the larger font sizes. Kindles don't hyphenate, so as you use a larger font size the lines of text are displayed as left-justified with a preset maximum amount of space between words.

This leaves a ragged right justification of the lines, but if it is done at full justification, you often get one word on the left and one word on the right with a large space between them. Kindle 1's did this, and it was annoying. With the current method, long words can lead to just one or two words per line at the largest font size.

The ragged right justification is even more pronounced in books that are not formatted as both left and right justified to begin with. I hope this is what you were asking.

And just in case you don't know how to change the font size, you can do a two-finger pinch or expand, as Kessa said. You can also tap the top inch of the page to bring up the control button and tap the Aa button at the bottom left. Check in Spacing to make sure words per line is set to "default," which gives you the most words per line.

Hi tearsmeup,

An alternative is to double tap on the page anywhere in the middle. It will make the font bigger on the Kindle Fire.

I do not know what "Polish" is but to change font size on your Ktouch, tap the screen near the top and the device menu will appear go into the font menu and tell it to be bigger(or smaller) until you see what you want. to hide the menu tap in the middle of the screen. If I misunderstood your question, I apologize. best of luck
