Isilo to Epub

Get iSilo for Windows (trial version). You have two options:

1. Use the "Save as" function which allows you to specify a .txt file. Then you can convert that file to iSilo.

2. You can copy and paste text from an opened iSilo .pdb file and paste it to notepad / your favorite text editor and take it from there.


Now for my question to Kovid:

We should be able to specify external reader program, iSilo, from within the calibre preferences, for reading the .pdb files which are in the calibre library. Can we add that option please.

Thanks a bunch for Calibre!

External readers can be configured for any format.
1) Tell your OS to open .pdb files with external reader program iSilo.
2) Tell Calibre not to use the Calibre reader when you view .pdb files.
