Tip: Change line spacing on the Kindle 2

August 30, 2010

Listening to last Friday’s “The Kindle Chronicles” podcast, I heard Len Edgerly and his wife discuss the new Kindle 3 feature that lets one change the amount of spacing between the lines of text.  While this may be a new addition to the Kindle’s ‘Text’ key options, it has long been available on the Kindle 2 as a hidden shortcut.

Directions to change line spacing on Kindle 2

Press & hold: ‘Shift’ + ‘Alt’ + (number 1 – 9) with ‘1’ yielding the fewest spacing, up to ‘9’ yielding the greatest spacing

Below are screenshots from 3 of the 9 available spacings:

'Shift' + 'Alt' + '1'

'Shift' + 'Alt' + '5'

'Shift' + 'Alt' + '9'
