    "5x version is not as good as 3x version"

    July 27, 2012  |   By janitorman


    The older version (3.4)of this worked well, 'tweaking' ePubs which I had converted from PDF. Using custom stylesheets, etc was painless. The interface was intuitive, and everything "just worked."


    The software used to work properly and be intuitive, but since its version updates, does nothing but crash. The new code view doesn't work properly, for instance, and the authors say there is no fix with the current code they're using. The new code also isn't fixable, whereas the old code worked fine.


    since removing some of the old code and adding code that doesn't work properly, this has turned into a horrible program that doesn't work. Please use version 3.4 instead!

    I just downloaded Sigil 3.4. Is this a link for an online user manual?
