Sigil Newbie Question

Hi all...I'm new to Sigil (but not MR!). Quick dumb question: can Sigil open ePub files that have DRM? I've tried opening 2 different DRM ePub files, and while the file title displays in Sigil, the book itself does not display.

Many thanks in advance for any info/tips!

Sorry, but no. And it never will. Open source applications cannot open DRM files since that would mean the "official" DRM-opening algorithms are also open source, and those don't exist.

Sigil could only theoretically remove the DRM, and it will never do that since that would make it illegal in some (prominent) countries.

thanks Valloric. That's what I figured, but just wanted to confirm.
