Silliness How a student outsmarted their teacher

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 21:31:20 GMT

\Student outsmarts teacher (https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2017/09/22/how-one-student-outsmarted-her-teacher-able-use-tons-notes-test/694167001/) ---Quote--- First test day of the semester and as always, I allow a 3x5 notecard. Today, a student shows up with this. Sure enough, it is 3x5... feet. As precise as I am, apparently I never specified inches and therefore yes, it was allowed. Well played and lesson learned for me ---End Quote--- Image: https://scontent-ort2-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/q82/p526x296/21752032_10214627024858104_6466392482623698094_n.jpg?oh=c336089cecb02a0429e9b7075812415a&oe=5A54D728 Well played. :rofl:

Intro and request for help

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 20:21:41 GMT

I'll give my intro and issues first. This may be too much detail for the forum, but I'm thinking that the more details, the more chance someone else has shared the same experience. ---------------------------------------------------- My name is Heydon, and I've just finished writing a book about World War II. My plan is to first publish it as an ebook. I'm completely new to online publishing, and my computer usage is currently limited to a desktop and a laptop. My principal issue here is learning to combine and convert my .doc or pdf files to mobi or epub or whatever other conversion I might need to make the book available online. Looking into epublishing, I learned that I'll have to convert my files. Further, I read that calibre software is good for doing this. Coming to the calibre site led me to this forum. I wrote the book on my desktop. It's an older system with Windows Vista as OS, and my software is MS Word 2002. My 32 chapters are set up as individual .doc files with footers for each chapter starting as page 1. At some point, I need to combine the chapters/files and make numbering sequential throughout the manuscript. Should I do that before converting the files to epub format? I set up the chapters on an 8.5x11 layout with 1" margins on top, bottom, and sides. I have a lot of images in the chapters so I imagine it will be difficult to convert the manuscript to a simple epub format. I've read that most epublishers won't print pdf format, but a book with many images (e.g., a cookbook) is difficult to arrange otherwise as page breaks are already established in the fixed layout specs. Does anyone know about this? Beyond the writing, I've already designed the book cover, chose my fonts and sizes, and page breaks. It's pretty much print ready if I were to print a paper copy at 8.5x11. However, to epub is a different matter and would require reworking for different size devices. This is especially true for the images. My first choice would be to publish the manuscript as its current size and layout, but I don't know if any online pubishers just accept pdf or doc files. I better stop for now. Any suggestions are appreciated.

edits won't save

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 16:21:27 GMT

Hi, I just started use Calibre today. I am attempting to make some edits in my existing ebook. I got my epub file into Calibre and figured out how to use the find/replace thing and I got my edits done. Except that I forgot two. I save the epub file to my desktop and then realized I had 2 more edits to do. I went back and did those. But ever since, I cannot get the final file with those last 2 edits to save. They show up in Calibre but not when I save to my desktop. I have tried deleting all old epub files on my desktop and closing out Calibre and re-opening. I have gone through this a few times. Every time I can see that the edits are there/saved, in Calibre but when I save the epub file to my desktop and open it and check, the two new edits are not there. I can't figure out what else to do. Would LOVE some help! Thanks!

I have been a Calibre user for several years. Since my retirement, I have been reading voraciously, and find Calibre indispensable. A great tool. I look forward to learning and sharing on this forum. My primary interests in books are in the fields of spirituality, history, philosophy and other non-fiction. I use a Kindle Fire tablet and have ordered a Kobo Aura One to load all of my DRM-free books. I oppose DRM, but believe in paying for books that I keep. I find that having a library card and borrowing ebooks through Overdrive from the local library is a great way to read otherwise expensive books for free.

Hello I have postponed too much this task. I have access to material which could be convert to ebook format, didn't had enough success in operating this task. The partial result didn't get a polished status. It lacks some basics of setting the right software. Here, for better understanding. (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/showpost.php?p=3580964&postcount=1) I come from IT background, so most of content I get is related to it. But I can get other topics too. My source of material is broad. Has one step though, it is locale, not english. It does have english material, but is quite few and mostly human science. Other discuss I would like to enter too is where the final files shall be released to public? Does it interest anyone? 7 posts to go to unblock PM.

After years using Kindles, I decided to try the Kobo Aura One. I still haven't learned all the tricks about using it, but I'm learning quickly. I'm looking forward to exchanging discussions, tips and tricks about the Kobo, DRM, transferring ebooks between my Kindle Library and my Kobo. I live in a remote rural area of northern Spain.
