Thanks JimmXinu

In their original paginated form the files I am splitting are 1,000's of pages, hundreds of sections, with 1-20 sections per logical chunk. There are an average of 80 chunks per file and I want to split at chunk boundaries.

After I chop a chunk off the top, I have to scroll down to the end of that chunk, to chop out second chunk, and then I have to scroll past the first and second chunk to chop out the third chunk, and so forth and so on... .

This process is very prone to me making mistakes after I've chopped a few chunks out of the original.

Regarding having backups etc, I am confident my backup regime is adequate to cope with any errors I might make and any plug-in defects.

If its not possible then I'll convert the EPUBs to RTF, split them in Word (maybe with a macro) and convert the RTF chunks back into EPUB with Calibre.

I tried Sigil but it crashed a couple of times reading the files, I guess they're either too big or they have residual creepy crawlies from the original PDF's lurking inside them

Cheers BR
