Guten Tag Support,
I have downloaded your HTML2EPUB.exe, tried it out.
I had selected the 37 HTML files of the 37 chapters of a book in HTML format, and expected to get them as an EPUB file.
But your program produced instead 37 separate EPUB files.
This may be OK for many uses, but makes it unfit for my purposes.
We suggest you may by following steps to try again,
1. You can convert all of your HTML files into a single PDF file first,
2. You can use “VeryPDF PDF to ePub Converter Command Line” to convert this PDF file into an EPUB file, you may download the trial version of “VeryPDF PDF to ePub Converter Command Line” from this web page,
We hope above software will reach your requirement, please give them a try.
Guten Tag VeryPDF,
thanks for your answer, but …
converting from a free-flow format (HTML) to another free-flow format (EPUB) via a fixed layout format (PDF) is not a good idea, in my humble view.
I will stick with Sigil, or the online Web service by Olaf Hoffmann in Hannover (Germany). Or write something myself. Whatever.
The HTML files in question are from a website under my control, and I can prepare the HTML files in a way to make them smoothly convertible to EPUB. I want to offer the download some of the texts as EPUB and also as PDF.
