    Converting your Full Circle pdf's to epub's with Calibre.

    Here is a nice program for reading and converting all your pdf files to epub for you ereader and Android devices. The program is called Calibre, and to install it just type this command in a terminal.

    Code:
    sudo python -c "import sys; py3 = sys.version_info[0] > 2; u = __import__('urllib.request' if py3 else 'urllib', fromlist=1); exec(u.urlopen('http://status.calibre-ebook.com/linux_installer').read()); main()"
    Type in your password and just take the default setting. It will download and install.

    After you have it installed just select your pdf file and open it with Calibre. Once it is open select your file from the list and right click and convert it. Or select the file and click on the “Convert books” icon at the top tool bar.

    After converting all the back issues of FC with Calibre, I found out the epub files are not right. Graphics are to big, and the text layout is all wrong. Not a good program to do this.

    Hey irv,

    as I am tasked to code the EPUBs for the magazine, I can tell you that we are planning to publish ALL issues as EPUB-Versions.

    But you need to consider the fact, that I am alone and have a RL too

    And one Issue takes at least two weeks of creation process.

    Greetings,
    the Lion

    Re: Converting your Full Circle pdf's to epub's with Calibre.

    I have being using two ways for my converting pdf to epub for my ipad reading.
    For free way: http://www.zamzar.com/convert/pdf-to-epub/
    For paid way, I often use the famous Amacsoft pdf to epub converter, which helps me quickly change PDF to ePub perfectly. Its batch converting ability save me a lot of time.

    But take into the conversion quality consideration, I think the best choice for us is to use the paid ways, because the free conversion documents are somtimes watermarked and virus, so in order to ensure our friendly ereading, it is better to choose a paid one.
