Question odd text inserted into ebook

i have tried to find if someone else has posted about this already, but have been unsuccessfull, so if there is already a thread, i appologize.

I am absolutely thrilled that calibre can convert pdf to epub, but i get this line inserted on every page or so: "Generated by ABC Amber LIT Converter, http://www.processtext.com/abclit.html"

is there any way to get rid of this? or must i just ignore it while i read the books?

You should post this in the Calibre forum http://www.mobileread.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=166

They're very helpful there

Your PDF started its life as a MS Reader LIT file. That Amber notice was inserted into the PDF file upon conversion and now has followed through into the ePub file.

Calibre may have a way to strip that line upon conversion and as crackerjax mentioned it may be best to post in the Calibre forum for that.

You could edit the html files in the ePub with Sigil, Vim or any other editor of choice and do a search and replace for the offending line.

Yeah, this is a line generated by the free Lit converter. My workaround was to use calibre to convert it to a text (or RTF) and then search out that line and delete them. Way too much work overall to try fight a screwed up file though unless it's really important. Now I just search out a better copy if possible.

You can strip that stuff out with Sigil. It takes about 10 seconds.
