InDesign provides support for the EPUB 2 section in the OPF file. InDesign automatically detects the cover and the print Table Of Contents option. To determine the text type, InDesign uses the epub:type values specified in the Object Export Options dialog.
InDesign creates a single .epub file containing the XHTML-based content. To view the file, you need an EPUB reader. You can also use the Adobe Digital Editions reader, that you can download free from the Adobe website.
The exported .epub file can include a cover image. You can select an image to be used as the cover. Alternatively, you can allow InDesign to rasterize the first page in the exported document or the style source document or the exported book. The thumbnail is displayed in the EPUB readers or the Digital Editions Reader library view.
Libraries and schools, like many others in the eBook ecosystem, depend on EPUB. For more information about how you can help save EPUB, please join us for an open conference call on Friday, Jan. 13 at 10:00 AM ET (15:00 GMT). Contact us at email@example.com for the dial-in information.
Note: If you only needed to update your metadata, you should then export your new file to your computer. You can do this by going to where it says "Formats" on the lower right-hand side of the page and right clicking on the word "EPUB." Then, select "Save the EPUB format to disk" from the dropdown menu that appears. If you still need to convert your .docx to an epub file, proceed to the "Look and Feel" step without saving the file.
While many people have jumped on the Google Doc bandwagon, there are plenty of times that you need to get the document you created collaboratively or via the Google Docs platform saved into another format to share with others. When working within the Google platform, there is no need to save a Google Doc as the system is continually saving on your behalf. When you want to save a Google Doc as a different file type, a couple clicks will easily accomplish that task.
However, if you need to save pages to a PDF, and your intent is to possibly cite a quotation from the book, it is important that you save from the PDF view, not the EPUB view because the original page numbers are totally lost from the downloaded PDF when saved from the EPUB view. In the EPUB-originated saved PDF, you get instead artificially generated 1,2,3,4 page numbers at the bottom which in no way correspond to the actual book page numbers. The original book page numbers are completely lost.
The easiest way to accomplish this change is to turn on hidden characters.You'll see all the 'P's along the sides.Simply click where you see a 'p', highlight it to save you time, and hit Shift-Return.It will make this line instead of the 'p'!
I found that the program Mozbackup was taking forever to back up Firefox, and the resulting compressed .pcv backup file was HUGE - Gigabytes. I then checked my Firefox profile and found that it had stored this huge epub folder. I often download books from TUEBL but see absolutely no use storing any of this stuff in the Firefox Profile. This problem is the same in my little Toshiba Netbook except that the epub folder was over 4GB. In both computers I have sent the epub fiolder to the Recycle Bin, and Firefox and Mozbackup now work correctly. If this continues OK, I will permanently delete these epub folders.
Do you view the epub in a tab using a plugin instead of saving it to disk first? Usually Firefox would use the Windows temp folder in that case, but maybe an add-on is setting up a folder in the profile?
I have to amend the previous reply: there is a folder in your "real" profile folder named storage that sites can use to store data using a database technology through a script. Typically the amounts are small, and you would get a prompt for permission to store anything large in there. Also, the folders usually are named for the website that stored the data. Is that were you found the epub folder?
Thank you for your very prompt response. I do view the epub files in a tab using the plug-in, and save the files in a totally separate folder. I am using an extension called EPUBReader and a Plug in from Sony called Reader Application Detector. In both computers the Firefox Profile is stored under Roaming.
Re your later response, thanks once again but I do not get any prompt, and the epub sub-folder is stored alongside all the other sub-folders in the Profiles folder under a sub-folder called 5e1idigs.default. My Mozbackup file has now reduced from Gigabytes to 20kBytes - much more reasonable.
This is how you can convert, export, and save as a PDF of a LibreOffice Writer document. You can also do the same for the spreadsheet program Calc. However, to save an Impress presentation to PDF, you need a different step which we explained here.
I have digital editions installed to manage by ebooks. Since I am having issues with some books being too small to read comfortably on screen in pdf format, I was going to try and purchase a couple of new books and "save" them in epub format. It seems like they keep automatically saving in .pdf, and I can't figure out how to get them into epub format. When I buy the books, it reports the books as supporting adobe formats or whatever, but there doesn't seem to be anything that specifies if that is pdf or epub. How can I either specify that, or have digital editions do that conversion so that I have the reflowable read. My device (Kobe reader) supports either.
Though there are other free solutions to convert a PDF to ePub on Mac, a great part of users resort to a professional one. A dedicated tool can not only save your time and efforts, but also bring satisfactory conversion results, such as the way Cisdem PDF Converter OCR allows users to do.
Any document that you open or create in Atlantis can be saved as eBook. Atlantis saves eBooks in the EPUB format. It is supported by most eBook reader software and devices (including Sony Reader, Nook, and iPad). Atlantis can also optionally generate eBooks in the Amazon Kindle (MOBI) format.
Before generating an eBook in Atlantis (a file with the ".epub" extension), you need to create its contents first. You might already have a document on your system that you would like to convert to an eBook. In this case, all you need to do is to open that document in Atlantis, then choose the "File Save Special Save As eBook..." menuThe main menu or simply menu is a horizontal bar with clickable commands anchored to the top of the main window of Atlantis: command.
In Atlantis, a document can be divided into chapters by inserting any appropriate heading text before each chapter, and then formatting the heading text with a dedicated Heading 1 style. To create a multi-level (hierarchic) chapter structure in your document, apply a Heading 1 style to the main parts or chapters of your books, apply a Heading 2 style to the sub-headings, and a Heading 3 style to the headings that are even lower in rank in the heading hierarchy. When Atlantis saves a document as eBook, it automatically picks up all the headings (paragraphs formatted with the "Heading" styles) from the document to generate a stand-alone table of contents.
So if you intend to save an existing document as eBook, and it doesn't already include an inline table of contents, you can insert one by clicking before the first chapter of the book, and choosing the "Insert Table of Contents..." menuThe main menu or simply menu is a horizontal bar with clickable commands anchored to the top of the main window of Atlantis: command.
Note that the floating pictures (except those with the "Top and bottom" wrapping style) from the source document get saved to eBooks either left- or right-aligned (depending on their position on the document pages) with text wrapping around. Pictures with the "Top and bottom" wrapping style get saved either left-, center- or right-aligned with no text wrapping on both sides.
By default, Atlantis creates eBooks in the EPUB format alone. But you might want Atlantis to save your source documents to both the EPUB and the MOBI format. Just save any document as eBook by choosing the "File Save Special Save as eBook..." menuThe main menu or simply menu is a horizontal bar with clickable commands anchored to the top of the main window of Atlantis: command. Atlantis would check if the kindlegen utility is available on your system, and if unavailable would suggest to automatically download & install it:
If your source document contains an inline table of contents, Atlantis will save your document as eBook with all the information required by the Kindle devices to locate the eBook's table of contents.
When you have converted a document to the EPUB format, it is a good idea to test the resulting .epub file in as many eBook readers as possible. For this, use any available devices like iPad, Sony Reader, etc. You can also install Adobe Digital Editions, a free eBook reader, on your Windows system.
Step 5: A dialogue box will appear when the conversion process is complete. This box will give you a link to the folder location where your converted file was saved. Click on that link to see where your file is located.
This guide assumes the availability on an epubcheck command.If you run the EPUBCheck program in any other way (for instance via the java command), please remember to replace the epubcheck command by your running method of choice when trying the examples in this guide!
After you make changes to the CSS, re-zip the ePub project, rename so it uses an .epub extension, and test it on all the different e-readers that your users may be using. I've installed Adobe Digital Editions on my computer and iBooks for the iPhone and iPad. Different e-readers may render your ePub file differently so testing is vital.
