Just a thought that I am sure will get shot down in flames for good reason.

Would it be possible and useful to add an "open with" funcrion. This should allow an epub that is open is Sigil to be concurrently opened in a book reader (Calubre, Moon etc.) Addittopnally it could also allow graphic files to be opened edited and saved back into the epub.

I'll go and get me parachute.

There's no option to open in an external epub reader, but that latter part of your suggestion is already possible. Multiple external editors can already be defined to open/edit/save the files of an open epub (image files included) with external programs. It's even called the "Open With" feature.

Thanks DiapDealer

I thought I had looked everywhere as it is not an option I use, but I vaguely remembered reading an "open with" option in Sigil. Off course as soon as you mentioned it I found it straight away.

This just leaves the question as to whether it would be too much work or too difficult to enhance "open with" 's functionality to allow the open eBook to opened in a user defined eBook reader? Or is it a bad idea?

BTW, if you set up Sigil to use PageEdit as the default XHMTL editor and double-click the .opf file, before opening PageEdit, you can use PageEdit as an eBook Reader with search functionality.

I use this facility for doing a last visual check of an eBook after I have finished editing it in Sigil. I usually find a few bits of formatting I have missed. It does
all I want it to do.

It was just that in other posts some people seemed to think it was inadequate as a reader and seemed to want a bespoke reader just for Sigil. That is why I made my made my suggestion. Personally it is most unlikely I would need or use it if Pageedit and/or Preview remain available.

It at least gives Kevin and Diap the opportunity to say "It aint gonna happen", or at some future time to say "perhaps that bad idea has some merit in the light of..."

I'm sure my memory is somehow playing tricks on me, but I seem to have a vague recollection of once being able to view the epub I was editing (with Sigil) in Adobe Digital Editions. Can anyone confirm whether this was a real memory or not?
