Something wrong with this file

UPDATE: Nevermind. There was a problem with CSS "cover.css". I fixed it, and it works now. There seems to be something wrong with the following file in my ePUB book, because I can't open the book in my PocketBook InkPad3. It opens the cover, but then I can't change pages. But if I remove it from the book structure, it opens normally. I use Sigil to edit ePUBs. This is the file: PHP Code:   The Essential Journey of Life and Death  The Essential Journeyof Life and D...

Implementing small-caps using Open-type features

This new thread follows a former thread about ligatures. This time it is about small-caps (but it could concern also other Open-type features of course). I suppressed the former post.

ePub is shown as folder in Dropbox

All my ePub files in the Dropbox folder on my Mac is single files. But on the Dropbox website or via apps all the files have turned into folders. That way there is no single file to use the 'open with' function. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Can I prevent hyphenation in a block of text?

I'm working on an epub ebook which in each of its 18 books and 208 chapters has a 'preface' of several words or a few sentences. The text of the 'preface' is centered, often using several lines, and quite often the last word on a line breaks, and is hyphenated. I think this looks awful. Is there a way to prevent all of the words in the centered text from breaking? A word at the end of a line which would otherwise break will then drop to the next line. I know how to prevent a single word from b...

Wanted: replacement for Menestrello, or: reading EPUB 3 Audio-eBooks on an iPad

Hi, I used to use Menestrello/Minstrel for the following, but the app is no longer available on Apple's appstore. That's why I'm looking for a replacement and hope for some hints here. I'm looking for a free iOS-App that's capable of playing/showing EPUB 3 Audio-eBooks, i.e. play audio while reading with highlighting of the word(s) actually being read (like Whispersync for Voice in the Kindle Android app). The speed of the audio/speaker should be adjustable and I want to import a self-made EPU...

Epub3 seems to be much closer

Recently I downloaded the last update of the PocketBook app for Android. This new release now has two rendering engines: RMSDK (for epub2) and Webkit (for epub3). The engine to be used is auto-selected by the app, but the user also can chosse what to use to read an epub (so it's perfectly possible to use webkit to read epub2 ebooks and sometimes is better). I was testing the epub3 support and I must say that is impressive (like Sigil or a bit better because it has hyphens and Sigil not); practic...

Custom link colour in .mobi?

Hi, Is it possible to specify a custom colour for links in a .mobi ebook? In my ePubs I use the following CSS, but it isn’t working when I transfer to mobi. Also, with the latest version of Kindle Previewer, text-decoration: none; also doesn’t work anymore... Any workaround? Code: a {         color: #A00000;         -webkit-text-fill-color: #A00000;         text-decoration: none; } Thanks!

Your top sources for purchased Epub books

What are your top 2 or 3 favorite sources for purchased books in epub format? For each, I'm interested to know the main pros and cons as you see it. Mine: Source: Google Play Books Pros: Decent Epub 3 support and book formatting quality; good selection; Android/iOS/browser apps; easy download/import-to-Calibre via ADE; uploaded books get full support for sync of positions/notes/highlights; notes saved to Google docs and easy to export Cons: Selection and pricing often inferior to Amazon;...

Epub 3 feature support and conversion

I have a couple Epub 3 questions for folks who have experience using and directly editing epub 3 source files, and managing those files in Calibre. What is the best concise summary you know for the differences between Epub 2 and 3, from a practical perspective of reading ebooks? Is this summary accurate? For current model devices and apps that claim to support Epub 3--for example Android 8.x/9.x devices running apps like Fbreader or Moon+, and recent Kobo devices --is there any value in conve...

CSS selectors

I'm looking to find a way of using a css selector with some unusual parameters. I'm familiar with using a selector such as Code: p + p { text-indent: 2em; } or Code: p.class1 + p { text-align : right; } however what I'm looking for is one which will only select the second where the first one has no class declared; i.e it won't select in the case of say Code: blah, blah, blah some more text Or any other "classed" tag. I'm not sure if this is possible - has anyo...

View single page landscape

I have a Nook HD+ tablet and I have created an epub from a collection of Wikipedia Periodic Table articles. To show the periodic table in its full width I need to view a single page in landscape mode. However, using Moon+ Reader, every time I rotate to landscape it gives me two pages (which for normal text would be fine). Is there any way to get Moon+ Reader to show me a single page landscape or is there any other reader which provides the option? Many thanks.

Revolutionary code? Need feedback

I came up with what seem to be a revolutionary code that solves all of the problems for full page images AND images with caption. Before making a formal announcement with my company I’d love if some of you guys could double check my code and see if it is as good as I think it is. I tested it with an ePub3 on ADE on Windows 10, iBooks on iPad, and on Android, Bluefire, Google Books and Gitden Reader. Full page images (the height="98%" is for Bluefire, else it creates a blank page before the ima...

SVG and Google Books

I noticed that in Google Books, the height and width parameters inside the svg image are ignored and the image is displayed very tiny, which forces us to also specify the height and width inside our ePub, in the containing the svg image. This works fine, but how time consuming it is to have to enter these values everywhere! Is there any workaround? I’m searching like crazy and nothing works.

Recommend an ePub3 using Bootstrap?

This is probably a dumb question, but can anyone point me towards an ePub3 using Bootstrap? If you type "Bootstrap" into Amazon's search box, you get books with Bootstrap in the title. I'd like to find an ePub that actually uses Bootstrap. I'd simply like to see what you can do with Bootstrap in an ePub, plus it would be nice to have a book that I can use as a model if I decided to go for it. I asked a question about Bootstrap about a year ago, and it looks like the situation hasn't changed mu...

Starting a line indented to end of previous line (Poetry)

I have some poetry that in the manuscript has short lines formatted to preserve meter: if one line is only a few syllables, the next line begins indented past the end of the previous one, and such. Monospace example (I've attached an image that illustrates this if the code here fails): Code: Here's a full line to start this dumb poem, This line it ends                   and then                           the next begins And now the sample's coming to an end.

Turn off ligatures (temporarily)?

Right now in my ebook I've got ligatures turned on everywhere with this bit in my CSS... Code:         -moz-font-feature-settings: "hist=1, liga=1, dlig=1";         -ms-font-feature-settings: "hist", "liga", "dlig";         -webkit-font-feature-settings: "hist", "liga", "dlig";         -o-font-feature-settings: "hist", "liga", "dlig";         font-feature-settings: "hist", "liga", "dlig"; ...which works fine, but what would I change that to if I wanted to set up a class to just te...

How can you embed video in an epub document?

We’re trying to produce an epub document that includes videos hosted on YouTube. Can this be done? Ideally, we’d like to have a page that includes a video thumbnail. When you click the thumbnail, the video will play (because the reader will be online). We tried embedding the video itself but that made the document file size too big. We’re hoping to include 20 – 30 videos in the document. Any help much appreciated.
