Designed specifically to work perfectly with as many devices as possible and to make text reflowing that is, making text display properly regardless of the size of the text or the size of the screen work the way it should.
PDF files are based on an open format that has been around since Most computers, and many eReader devices, are able to open PDFs without a third party program. This means that in most cases PDF pages are displayed a lot like images and require the reader to zoom in and move around the page to read it. Enter Calibre 3. Calibre is an application that is used for managing your eBook files. In many ways, you can think of Calibre as being a sort of iTunes for eBooks.
This program sorts your books, allows you to access them quickly and makes it easy to transfer books to various eReaders. Once you add your books to the library it will allow you to sort by title, author, series, publish date, the publisher or even the date you added it to the library or the size of the file.
Calibre also allows you to add custom tags to eBook files that let you filter to custom, specific groups of books. You can also give eBooks ratings so you can remember books that you particularly enjoyed. Never fear! Calibre is able to convert pretty much any non-DRM format to pretty much any other format and manage the multiple copies. Syncing to eReaders Calibre recognises most of the popular eReaders by default and allows you to choose which eBooks to put on which devices without having to use another application.
Calibre also has a feature called a content server, which allows you to connect to the Calibre library directly from the eReader itself wirelessly assuming your device has wireless capabilities, of course!
Grabbing the News Another interesting feature that Calibre has is its ability to take the latest articles from almost any news source and package them into a single eBook.
This basically creates a list of books that can be accessed via a web browser by any computer or device on your local network. Any book, anytime, anywhere! The last setting to worry about is whether or not you want to enable the content server.
The icon with the books basically provides information on your library as a whole; the heart is for donating to Calibre, if you so choose. Next up is to browse to the folder where you keep all your books.
However, you can override this here in case the default is not suitable for you. The Font size key option lets you control how non-base font sizes are rescaled. The font rescaling algorithm works using a font size key, which is simply a comma-separated list of font sizes.
The idea is that there should be a limited number of font sizes in a document. Suppose the source document we are converting was produced by someone with excellent eyesight and has a base font size of 8pt. That means the bulk of the text in the document is sized at 8pts, while headings are somewhat larger say 10 and 12pt and footnotes somewhat smaller at 6pt.
Now if we use the following settings: Base font size : 12pt Font size key : 7, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20 The output document will have a base font size of 12pt, headings of 14 and 16pt and footnotes of 8pt.
Now suppose we want to make the largest heading size stand out more and make the footnotes a little larger as well. To achieve this, the font key should be changed to: New font size key : 7, 9, 12, 14, 18, 20, 22 The largest headings will now become 18pt, while the footnotes will become 9pt.
You can play with these settings to try and figure out what would be optimum for you by using the font rescaling wizard, which can be accessed by clicking the little button next to the Font size key setting.
All the font size rescaling in the conversion can also be disabled here, if you would like to preserve the font sizes in the input document. A related setting is Line height. Line height controls the vertical height of lines. By default, a line height of 0 , no manipulation of line heights is performed.
However, this is something of a blunt weapon and should be used sparingly. In this section you can also tell calibre to embed any referenced fonts into the book.
This will allow the fonts to work on reader devices even if they are not available on the device. Justified text has extra spaces between words to give a smooth right margin. Some people prefer justified text, others do not. Normally, calibre will preserve the justification in the original document.
If you want to override it you can use the Text justification option in this section. You can also tell calibre to Smarten punctuation which will replace plain quotes, dashes and ellipses with their typographically correct alternatives.
Note that this algorithm is not perfect so it is worth reviewing the results. The reverse, namely, Unsmarted punctuation is also available. Finally, there is Input character encoding. When converted, this can result in non-English characters or special characters like smart quotes being corrupted. You can force it to assume a particular character encoding by using this setting.
Remove spacing between paragraphs forcefully ensure that all paragraphs have no inter paragraph spacing. It also sets the text indent to 1. Insert blank line does the opposite, guaranteeing that there is exactly one blank line between each pair of paragraphs.
This is so that you can just set the option and be sure that it performs as advertised, irrespective of how messy the input file is.
The one exception is when the input file uses hard line breaks to implement inter-paragraph spacing. Another useful options is Linearize tables. Or is this just some seasonal effect, or some other kind of coincidence? The Lament of the Cartoon Cats.
