Converted from PDF to EPUB ... now want to fix mistakes.
For example want to change stil to still with CALIBRE search and replace.
tried:
search for / stil /
replace with / still /
I want to search for and replace the leading and trailing blanks so as not to mess up words that contain stil. This does not work. I do not know how to enter a string with leading and trailing blanks in the CALIBRE search and replace fields. Anyone help?

IMHO use Sigil to fix those.
1) you can do this interactively Find (again)/ Replace (and it finds Next), so you see what is being done.
2) IMHO Calibre is mostly intended to replace repetitive things like Page nnn, Author, Title that appear frequently.
