More trouble than it's worth. But it IS doable.

Methinks that this whole PDF is too much of a hassle unless it's books which are required for learning or teaching.
I guess that i will stick to what little I do know, which is mobi.
Many thanks for taking the time to reply.

Cool, I'm glad I found this thread. Anyone have a solution to myscribe? I go to an online school that has texts through myscribe and digital editions, but copistar wouldn't read it. I'd buy copistar in a second if it'd also solve the myscribe problem, but don't feel like doing it since only half my classes are in digital editions. I believe these are still pdf's, but they're even more specially encoded?

I don't want to have to take a huge laptop when I want to study in the car or train or whatever.

Does myscribe have any free books to see how the system works? The CopiStar people have been really cool -- they've answered my questions in great detail, and so far all the feature requests I've made have been added to the next version that's supposed to come out in December. I've been talking to them for a couple weeks now. I bet they'd take a look at myscribe and see what they can do if there's a way for them to look at a free file.

Really? That's interesting. Could you ask them about it or should I write them an email? You can import pdf files into it, just can't export them, so I'm sure they could do it that way if they needed a sample or something.

Wrote them, I noticed they said that the software supports all digital books, so maybe they'll be inclined to add myscribe. lol
