It would help if you would explain what it is about Sigil that's NOT working for you, or what you need, or anything?

As for me, specifying "as good as Sigil" eliminates all others!

^^^^ Ditto! IMHO, seriously--nothing is as good as Sigil. I do agree that the next-best is probably the Calibre HTML editor.

They each have features the other doesn't have e.g. calibre's multi-lingual spellchecker and sigil's open-with are unique to each. I use both of them, on the same epubs.

I also have several hammers, spanners, knives and stirring spoons . . .

Calibre is also a little more lenient on opening some atrociously put-together EPUBs. (There's this handful I've been working on lately with invalid 0 KB files in there, or corrupt content.opf.) Usually I open those in Calibre, save a valid EPUB, then go working elsewhere.

Nope. The only epub editor that I've used that comes close to Sigil is calibre's editor. I use both since each has some features that the other doesn't, for instance, calibre is more forgiving of really bad epubs.

What a curious request. Something as good as Sigil that is not Sigil ...

If you want something as good as Sigil, why not just use Sigil?

Calibre has an open-with. You just save the eBook and go back to the main Calibre UI and use the open-with.

Yeah, so does Windows.

The calibre Open With opens "format" files (EPUB, TXT, DOCX etc) within a Calibre library, I use it to open library ePubs with Sigil. Sigil's Open With opens component files within an epub, I use to edit xhtml, jpeg, mp3 etc files.

Once the external editor closes the component Sigil updates its internal copy of the component with what was saved - e.g. the titivated image, the clipped audio. One could probably edit an embedded font with something like Fontographer if you were into that sort of thing.

Calibre doesn't even change its Last Modified date if I open a format file in an editor (e.g. EPUB in Sigil, DOCX in Word, TXT in Notepad), change it, and save it. Not saying it should - just saying it doesn't. Whereas Sigil is very aware of external changes to component files - and acts accordingly - as it should.
