brilliant news !! it's great to see ETI is still developping for their products, it would be a shame for them to be left in a corner somewhere. not that epub support is a suprise from Garth Conboy, of course, but i's a very welcome addition nonetheless. thanks ETI ! nice work ! and thanks Nick for the news !

For the Mac version above, are you referring to the Beta Mac OS X Publication Tools? Does this also support .epub conversions?

Yes, Garth is right in the midst of this .epub standard and where we NEED him to be! Just a note that, John Rivlin, co-founder of ETI is also a major reason this new version has been released.

Kudos to the ETI Guys!

I haven't tried it myself but the openness of having mac versions is good for the industry.

Oh, another tidbit, Garth is a Mac person; John is more Windows inclined.

Even though I used, for Business, the very first Apple Macintosh and the early IBM XT/AT's, I consider myself more Windows literate.

For personal use, I am only a Windows person (ever since I begrudgingly left the Amiga platform... ).

Is there any documentation on this version available anywhere? It looks like you can create ePUB ebooks with it, and retrieve ePUB back into the Publisher environment. The choice to select ePUB has a icon beside it that can be used to view the document but it chops the right edge off all the pages in my system. Is there something that can be done about that? The windows install now redirects all ePUB to the publisher but I can fix that.

No, there isn't anything specific to this version in their Documentation other than the What's New in v2.3 blurb. The rest of their eBook Publisher Windows.doc wasn't updated to include any .epub specific issues. Just follow the old way of doing things, in the documentation, using .oeb (OEBFF) files. They do say that the two (.epub and .oeb) are dealt with interchangeably. It's not .epub specific, but should help cope with them.

You're referring to the Preview target icon on the OCF Container Settings screen. If I set it to Color VGA I get the REB1200 preview. However, I too get that problem when I set it to Grayscale Half-VGA. It doesn't seem to allow a EBW1150 preview. This I think is a bug. (Hey, isn't that what this thread is for!)

Can you try the Mac software and gives us an idea/feedback how it works? That software though has been out for a while, so I don't think it has full .epub support, if any. I'm curious to know what the differences are between the Windows and Mac versions. No one has ever mentioned using it before.

Oops, thought you did! Who else out there uses a Mac and could try this out, for purely academic reasons....

Hi BOb!

Not really. Any .imp ebooks produced can be viewed with the supplied viewer (if there is one, we don't really have any feedback on this yet) or even posted here .

Screenshots would be nice, then you could uninstall the software. You can check our wiki (eBook Publisher) for a Windows screenshot of the program.

If you would like some help getting started, I'm a request away.....

Thanks!

yes we are.

but you could test the software without having a device ; just use the built-in simulator.

edit : oops, nick was faster.

I'll give it a whack when I get a chance.

Basically, what do you want me to try. Load an ePub book and then try to view it? Perhaps compare the view with the ePub being viewed in Stanza or Calibre perhaps?

The viewing, I think, is currently a bit broken.

But if you could generate a .imp ebook from a widely available source, like REBTestDocSrc.zip and then compare that to an existing .imp, like those here, then that would be better. Just load the REBtestdoc.opf and build the Grayscale Half-VGA (i.e. EBW1150) target. See sample images from the PC viewer program below.

I don't know if the Mac version even has any support yet for .epub ebooks. That's what you may be able to confirm for us.

Otherwise, earlier in this thread, I explained how to create a .imp ebook from a .html source. See if you can follow it and post your results. Again, I'm here for some hand-holding (in a platonic-way ).

Thanks for taking this on!
