Fails to recognise PDF tags and makes no attempt to detect or reconstruct paragraphs. Renders each page as a single div in a separate flow with br tags separating the lines and indented paragraphs marked by non-breaking spaces. Produced a 93kB (!!) css file which was almost totally composed of font-size and spurious (and misspelt) vertical-align attributes.

You may want to try the Acrobat plugin based ePub conversion solution available at http://www.pdf2epub.com which recognizes PDF tags, reconstructs paragraphs and does a decent job in retaining most of the font and layout attributes.

Does this work better than caliber?
Or is Caliber's built in PDF converter better? I kind of liked the idea of printing the PDF file to the correct size and using that if it is more likely to remain clean and usable, but would this improve the conversion any?

Hello everyone,

We put an online pdf2epub service available there.
You can visualize the output of each step of the conversion using a GUI.

Any feedback is welcome.

If any feedback is welcome then:
  1. I would (and will) never use this service because it requires me to get an account and login even to test it.
  2. I suspect that eventually I'd have to pay for these conversions, which, again I would never do so long as free solutions exist such as calibre or online converters like this (even if yours is better, which I'll never know about).

It's expensive but I absolutely love ABBYY Finereader. It has excellent OCR capabilities and can convert to several different formats with different options (removing headers and all) with CSS.

I usually convert to an html file then use Sigil to convert to a epub, always get excellent results.
