Hi,

I just bought a bunch of pdf and epub ebooks. They open and read fine in Adobe Digital Editions. Problem is, I would need to be able to search given words in all the ebooks. As far as I can see, I can search words within the document which is open, but not in the other files which are in the same directory.

An option to solve this would be to convert the epub files to pdf and use Acrobat Reader. I tried Calibre, but the resulting pdf file was too small and weird (less pages than the original epub file and the links within the document are no longer working). IS there any good tool to convert epub files to pdf?

thanks!

Jellby's script (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=56310) (post #11) for using Prince XML to convert ePub to PDF works beautifully.

It was written in linux, and it might take some effort to get it work on a PC/Windows machine. I'm hoping someone will eventually convert it to Python to make it more portable.
