Hi
I use Calibre to convert ebooks to ePub.

The TXT (or outher format) Input and ePub Output options mean very little to me.

Can anyone suggest any options that help for a better conversion and what they actually do.

I use a number of devices so am really looking for general advice not specific to any one device in particular.

Thanks

This is really a Calibre forum question. But... ;)

For each input conversion option, Hover over it with your mouse.
Balloon help explains more of what each try to do.
Most deal with detecting Paragraph and Scene breaks.
for more, Read: http://calibre-ebook.com/user_manual/conversion.html#format-specific-tips TXT section

(EPUB) Output options have the same Hover help and deal with look and feel of the final.
Remember :bulb2:

Conversions can't be great with a Garbage source.
