From epub to pdf: Formatting
Hi everyone, i just came across this superb software.
I want to convert an epub file to a pdf file with a format similar to http://www.danbrown.com/wp-content/t...ok_excerpt.pdf
To be specific, I like the spacing of the chapter title (between the top and the text) and I also like to have the very first letter in each chapter to be bigger and have a different color (like what you see in the link).
Can this be done in Calibre? Thanks.

If your source epub already displays your preferred spacing and coloured dropcaps, then they should be retained in the pdf output. But you can't create the spacing/dropcaps as part of the calibre conversion.
If your epub doesn't already have the necessary styling then you could use the Sigil epub editor program to create it. Although you would need some basic html/css knowledge to do so because it's not a 'magic button' kind of option.
P.S. Welcome to MobileRead
