View Full Version : .epub to LaTeX Conversion

07-09-2012, 03:38 PM
Hello everybody,

Now that I am fairly happy with my .epub as far as formatting and layout are concerned, I wanted to turn it into a more "distributable" and "printable" format. Calibre did a somewhat ok job with .pdf, but internal <a> tags don't work, and I can't quite figure out how to choose a different font for the conversion. There's also the issue that I had to adjust the border dimensions which shrunk the cover image.

So I was curious if I could turn the .epub into LaTeX format. That way I can apply a few adjustments and generate .pdf myself.
