Thanks

Does the command line on the first message not work for you? What command are you running?

OK. Nice work! A big improvement.

Parece que ya no peta ningún epub.

El problema de las fuentes en e PDF lo tienes en la regenta (al ppio del libro el primer diálogo pag 5) y muchos otros libros donde aparecen guión y letra. (este bug particularmente es el que mas me joroba ya que muchos de los lrf que tengo tienen ese problema) Me da gana de sacar el eclipse y tirar de debugger, pero tiene telita tu código (me baje del svn los src)... jeje....

Lo curioso es que se ve mal con el acrobat (versión 8) de windows, el el iphone se ve bién.

También sigue pasando lo del doble espaciado... también me parece muy critico porque hace el formato del epub poco usable. Pasa en todos los epub...

He probado rápido y parece que sigue sin ir bien los enlaces en los epub, en uno me han funcionado pero en otros muchos no.

Yes the I have tried the command from the first message and I got the, "Unable to access LRFTools-v0.9.148.jar" message. I am using terminal. I am accessing the .jar file from the directory it resides in. Any thoughts?

I am sorry, I am dumb. I just spelled the .jar file wrong. I went back and looked at the command. Dumb.

Sorry again for being stupid.

Hi gagan. To use convertPDF actually you need to specify -SVG. I've reserved the above command line for the new PDF2EPUB conversion method. So, now you must write:

java -Xms200M -Xmx300M -jar LRFTools-v0.9.148.jar convertPDF "C:\test" -SVG

1) I downloaded Water for Elephants in .rgo format...what the heck is that? What can open it. When I clicked it..adobe acrobat opened and said, "sorry it won't work here"..(it has the adobe icon)...
2) I still can't find a DRM buster(remover thingie), I have one .lit file and just a couple of .pdf's that won't open ...are drm'd.

3) Which brings me to frictionwise...(yes, frictionwise!!) I downloaded Duma Key in .lit cuz at the time I was converting my .lit's to .rtf's...I, not having dealt with them or purchased a book, assumed (wrongly) that I'd convert it...well I found out the hard way...it wouldn't convert.

4) I'm now wanting to purchase another book: Edgar Sawtelle...and don't see .lrf option. Is is safe to click BBEB? If I pick the wrong format...they won't swap with me or even answer an inquiry.

I ramble...it's almost 1 a.m., but these are my questions that I've wanted answered for several days.

Colleen with more converter's than books (almost)

TIA, C in CA

Any chance of PDF to HTML ??? That would be truly wondermous!!

Right now I can use LRFtools to go from LRF to HTML, and then html2mobi to go to Mobi. If I had a way to make PDF become mobi, I'd be so happy!!!

P.S. Thanks for the goodness in LRFtools that lets me make LRF files become readable in mobi (on my Kindle). Now I'm just reaching for the moon, and asking for PDFs to work equally well for my particular needs.

You can now convert PDF to EPUB. If you change book file name extension from .epub to .zip you can open book content, and this is html/css (LRFTools saves html pages, images and css files to OBPS directory).

I wonder if I'm missing some fonts, or some program. Here is a sample of what LRFTools made for me, with EPUB output. The first is from a PDF file, so I used "convertPDF". It's not a useable output, at least viewing the html (epub) bits on my mac. Would it be better after html2mobi conversion?

The second is similar (PDF via convertPDF) but is at least readable. I like the title alteration (should be BUBBLE).

The third is from a LRF file. I used "convert -EPUB" (older version maybe, if the options don't currently match). It's quite good, other than quotation marks. But I can't get "good" from an original PDF file. My success (above) is with "convert -HTML". THAT's great!

Also -- SVG isn't recognized by many browsers on the mac. Is JPG an option?

SVG is a vector language while JPG is a raster language. Read the wiki article to learn about the difference Graphics
Converting to SWF and using a shockwave add on would be better but the ePUB standard only supports SVG.

I tried this on this file:

The line spacing was really bad. It went into triple-spacing.
