That's already present in the new release which I'll be releasing in a day or two along with a bunch of other things

On OS X I get an error installing PIL

I seem not to be able to install the python imaging library. I think it can't find SDK? ... This is starting to not make sense to me.

Can someone look at the output file and see what I can do to get this installer to work?

btw... this is PIL 1.1.6 and Python version is 2.5.1

Yes and thank you Ashkulz for you work on this, I can't wait to get it working.

I looked at the log, and it looks like you don't have the proper Apple Developer Tools installed. Please try to (re)install that and try again.

PDFRead 1.6 has been released. It has all the features which have been requested here, plus quite a bit more. Please see the linked thread for details

Little bugs

Thx for your fantastic tool.
According to me, there are two little bugs in versione 1.6:
1) when I make an ebook the generated file hasn't extension.
for example

lrf for prs500
imp for Reb1150, etc.

2) I have tried to make an ebook in eb1150 profile. the ebook is created but eBookwise Librarian recognize it like REB1200/GEB2150, so I cannot see this ebook in reb1150 bookshelf.

This has already been implemented in subversion yesterday, should be part of next release.

Hmm, that's weird. Can you attach a copy of the input and output documents and/or screenshots of the process?

Now, that is really wierd. It works quite well for me, and quite a few other people. Can you try the following:
  1. Try with PDFRead 1.7 instead of the 1.6 you have right now.
  2. Uninstall and reinstall the latest eBook Publisher.
  3. Try running on a computer with the English windows version, instead of italian.

This one really has me stumped.

The profile settings for the prs-505 are listed in the most recent thread for PDFRead version 1.8 here.

I tried PDFRead to convert some of my pdf files to imp2 format. Unfortunately, I have to use the landscape mode just to be able to read it on my EBW1150. I always prefer the portrait mode but the result is hardly readable. Even on landscape mode, sometimes the text cannot be read. I also noticed that using PDFRead, the file is bloated to several megabytes. I tried experimenting using Mobipocket Creator. I first convert my pdf files ( with images) to mobipocket format ( prc) using Creator then use Mobi2IMP to convert to imp. The result is outstanding ( for me at least). Not only can I read in portrait mode but the final file is a just a few megabytes.
