(Feature Request) epub support!

Post by gate1975mlm » Sun Sep 22, 2013 5:13 pm

Please can you add epub support to PDF-XChange Editor?

I would really like to be able to read all my books that are in the epub format with PDF-XChange Editor :)

Any chance of this being added in the future?

Thanks

Hello gate1975mlm,

I believe that in the past I've discussed this as a possibility with one of our devs, but for the moment I am not aware of any active development in this direction. This is however not to say that support for converting .epub files to PDFs and displaying them in the editor could not be added in the future just as .xps files are currently handled.

Regards,
Stefan

Hello,

I just wanted to say I love how PDF-Xchange Editor is coming along. It's getting better and better with each release!

And if someday in the not to far future you add the ability to open and read .epub files it would be fantastic :)

Thanks

Many thanks for the kind words gate1975mlm!

Much appreciated.
.epub support could be looked at after some other tasks and features are implemented.

Stefan

Thanks.

Hi All,

Just spoke with a colleague from the dev team, and he told me that because of the format on which ePub is based (html) - we will need to build an html-to-pdf converter to be able to support that format, however this is rather complex and is not currently under development. So for the time being ePub is not going to be supported but we might reconsider that in the future.

Regards,
Stefan

That's cool and thanks for the info.

It would be nice if PDF-XChange Editor could open epubs so I did not have to use other software but I understand :)

I would recommend Calibre for viewing epubs for the time being until PDF-XChange Editor maybe gets epub support.

Hi gate1975mlm,

Thanks for the understanding :) We'll keep a note of this one for possible implementation at a later date.

Cheers,
