I just used your program over the weekend but it didn't bring over the prolog of the book I was converting it only converted chapter 1 thorugh 21. Just thought I would mention this.

Its a great program by the way.

Large lrf files

I am converting a pile of .lit files which are typically 0.2 - 0.6 mb in size.

When I convert them I get an .lrf file over 5 mb.

I tried converting one to ePub and got around 0.6 mb (same size as the lit).

Is it normal that the .lrf files are so large?

Wouldn't have thought so, but are they full of images or something like that, maybe? My experience is that they're a bit larger, but not much more so.

E.g. Using the MS lit from here, which is 334KB, my conversion gives an LRF of 427KB.

The LRF shouldn't be that large.

I loaded and converted Black on Black as suggested and I got an 5.27 mb LRF.

I'm using version 0.4.86 running on Vista Home.

Hmm well if you care about it, open a ticket, or just use EPUB

I don't really care about it so I'll swop over to ePub. One question...how do I increase the font size in the ePub conversion?

you cant. i haven't implemented that feature yet. For some files you could probably achieve the effect you want by using

Code:
body {font-size: 14pt}
in the override css field

Can anyone help, please? I think I've used the MS reader key recovery tool correctly and I can see the keys.txt file in both the convertlit and calibre folders.

Did you use convertlit to downconvert the book before you imported it into calibre?

No - I've never had to do this before so it didn't occur to me. Now I've tried it, it works - thank you! I found some useful info at http://dukelupus.pri.ee/convertlit.php.

Talking I really needed help and Calibre helped a lot.

I was trying to read lit books and tried monkeying with ms reader and somehow it did not seem to be working and finally found Calibre and now I am happy and content. I am using ubuntu and I do not like windows.
