For some reason that option is now missing and I'm not sure exactly when it first went "missing."

I have updated my copy of Calibre to 2.85.1 x64 version.

Any known issues or help you might offer?
I suspect you have been using the built-on open with rather than this plugin.

The latest update inadvertently lost the right click on a format Open With option. But you can get at it via other means. See this thread, ==>> v2.85 Open With missing on format right click.

Hi

This plugin is crashing Calibre when changing from libraries. I can confirm that it is this plugin because by uninstalling it I can make Calibre crash free agai9n.

Hello,

After (system) update from Qt 5.7.1 to Qt 5.9.1 the plugin “Open With” cannot open files (e.g. epub) when the selected program is a Qt application.

Error Description:
From Calibre i will open a epub about “Open With” with Sigil.
But Sigil does not open any more epub by clicking on the “Open With” menu
The same on at built-in Qt program E-book viewer

This works:
  • Into Calibre:
    Internal EPUB link (open ebook-viewer) in book detail
    Click on book in book list (open ebook-viewer)
  • From terminal:
    Code:
    /opt/calibre/ebook-viewer example.epub
    sigil example.epub
Troubleshooting?:
Support for Qt ≥ 5.9.×
__________________

Open With 1.5.10
Calibre 3.6.0
Sigil 0.9.8
Qt 5-9-1 (transition)
OS Siduction 64bit (based on Debian/sid)
__________________

Sorry for my English.
And I do not know if the problem is by “Open With”, or Qt transition.

Thanks

Use Open With that's built into Calibre. It does work to open ePub with Sigil.

This plugin could be fixed to work with Sigil. It already has been fixed for the Windows platform. It just needs the same treatment for Linux. But the OP's not round much anymore. I've got a working version, perhaps I'll post it here when I have time.

Otherwise, yes ... use calibre's built-in Open With feature instead as JSWolf said.

Yes this workaround help, but I need four clicks to open the book with Sigil (two with “Open With” plugin). Sigil is the standard ebook application

Right-clicking on the 'EPUB' format in the details pane should get you to the Open With menu in a minimum number of clicks (after the initial configuration). I count 2 clicks (one right-cllick and one left-click) to get the epub open in Sigil. You may be able to reduce that even further with a keyboard shortcut.

I thought I'd remembered that correctly. Thanks.

Sigil's title in that screenshot amuses me.

"Would you like to open that with Sigil-is-a-multi-platform-EPUB-ebook-editor?"

I've since made the transition to calibre's built-in Open With feature, but I'll post my working version of this plugin that should fix the issue with opening Sigil on Linux (it does on my system) for those who may not be ready to move on yet.

I advanced the version to 1.5.11

(no compression at all on the zip file in case the size difference concerns)

then convert that to an .exe (using any of the on-line or off-line tools found with Google). The .exe is then entered as the Application path in the plugin.

But as you have found this only opens the App. I have not really investigated any further as I suspect that the solution will depend on the App's ability to accept an argument from the plugin to open the book and the plugin's ability to send the correct argument, neither of which I suspect have been implemented in the relevant Apps and the plugin.

It would be very useful though.
Sorry for bringing up an ancient topic, but am having problems to setup Drawboard as PDF reader within Calibre after re-installation.

Tried the AppUserModalId thing to no avail.

Any pointers?

Cheers.
