Editing an epub with Sigil

I have converted a pdf to epub with calibre. Although it was way faster than doing OCR with Abbyy Fine Reader than bulid the epub from html with Sigil the result was ugly. But the text is there nevertheless. Now, how do I edit that file with Sigil? Won't it break the database by editing the epub? Do I export it, remove it from the database, edit it and feed it back to calibre?

Install the Open with plugin, then you can edit the epub with Sigil from within calibre.

Oh, but I can press "O" and have the contents of the folder shown up. And from there I have all the power Windows can offer me. Yet, won't that disturb the database as the file has changed?

Calibre does not mind if the contents of the file has changed as long as you do not change the name or location in any way.

When you install ANY plugin that affects the User Interface you have to configure WHERE it will show.

Try going to Preferences | Toolbar (under Interface) then select "The context menu for the books in the calibre library" and finally drag the "Open with" from the list of "Available actions" to the "Current Actions".
