If you want to know how to remove ABC..

Hey there, if you want to know how to remove the Generated by ABC Lit Converter footer, it's actually a lot more simple then you think. I saw various threads on here with users who didn't know how to do this.

So here are the steps for when you have a document that says 'Generated by ABC Amber LIT Converter, http://www.processtext.com/abclit.html' or any other unwanted footer.

Select the book with the unwanted tag.
Go to 'Convert Book'. Go to 'Search And Replace'

Where it says 'Search Regular Expression', copy and paste the 'Generated by ABC' blahblahblah from the .pdf document into the that field.

Hit the Wizard's wand and select 'Test'. You should then see the occurences of that string of text, 'Generate by..' It will look something like this:

"<b>Generated by ABC Amber LIT Converter, http://www.processtext.com/abclit.html</b>

Then you will click the 'Add' button. (Replacement Text field should be empty. You want to REMOVE a text string, not REPLACE.)

Then you should see the string of text you have entered above, complete with opening and closing expressions. The Replacement Text field next to it should be blank.

Then click 'Ok' and it will convert the book to the specified fomat -- Without the nasty footers.

To test the book, click on the 'Format' link on the right of the book, and click on the original book with the nasty footers, it will still have them. Now click on format you converted to, epub in my case and check. It should have the footers gone.

Important! In the RegEx builder window, the 'b' and '/b' should be copied as well, otherwise I don't think it will work all that well, if at all.

Ah well, hope this helps whomever was stuck on this. I'd imagine it will also work for other footers as well.

If I remember correctly, there were some issues with the string being rendered differently (as far as the markup is concerned) in basically every book, so this may not work every time. Nice work, however, this is also covered by one of the stickies.

They are even trickier than that that as even within a book the amount of whitespace can very between pages. This means you need to make sure the regex expression used can handle that.

why would anyone want to work with ABC lit converter output anyway.. If you own the relevant .lit format book then calibre can take that & convert it into whatever you wish; if you don't own the lit then your sources are at best questionable , at worst stolen.
