    "Barely did the job"

    January 24, 2011   |   By greers_PM

    Version: ePub Maker 1.3

    Pros

    60% of characters & proper formatting was converted

    Cons

    big holes, many extra horizontal lines, extra spaces, extra pages, formatting lost

    Summary

    My input document was a complex PDF business book with checklists, worksheets, numbered/bulletted lists, etc. Results were useless. I ended up using this process:
    1. Saved my Word file as a filtered HTML file and published to Amazon Kindle
    2. Pulled in the Kindle-created "mobi" file into Calibre software.
    3. Converted mobi to epub via Calibre (very nice, powerful freebie)
    4. Checked epub file on my wife's B&N Nook
    5. Made minor tweeks & edits to epub file with Sigil open source epub editor (works well!)
    6. Uploaded edited epub to B&N publishing
    NOTE: You can see a sample of the PDF book that this software botched when converting at this URL: The Project Mgt. Minimalist -- http://michaelgreer.biz/?page_id=636

    "Easy to use, save much time"

    November 22, 2010   |   By softrover

    Version: ePub Maker 1.3

    Pros

    Very easy to use with friendly UI, creating epub from MS Word is very good.
    Just a few clicks. The chapter split and title extraction function is awesome.
    But you should organize your Word file properly.

    Cons

    It's not free, there are many free tools though not so easy to use

    Summary

    If you have no time to do it yourself or you don't have professional knowledge, this is a good choice.

    "Good for single files, not for books"

    July 10, 2010   |   By Tribalgrl1

    Version: ePub Maker 0.9

    Pros

    Quick and easy to use, works great for converting single files

    Cons

    Skips pages when creating chaptered ePub books from HTML files; keep getting "Do you want to run?" warning when initializing; watch where you save your eBooks; only works w/Word '07 or HTML.

    Summary

    I wanted a program that would convert my text documents into ePub format to be read on my Kobo E-Reader, and being on a budget, I wanted free (yeah, I know). E-Pub Maker is a great program for converting single files into ePub format; with some trial and error, I was able to convert several docs and transfer them over so they're at hand anytime.

    The program claims to be able to convert both Word and HTML files, but there's a catch - the Word files have to be Word 2007 (.docx), and HTML only works when you save several HTML files to a folder to create an e-book with chapters. In order to convert my .doc files, I had to save them as .docx format (Word 2007), and in order to read them on the Kobo or in Adobe Digital Editions I had to increase the font size to 16 or 18 and make sure I hit "Enter" twice between each paragraph. I also tried to create a chaptered e-book with HTML files, but for some bizarre reason it skipped every second or third page. The program wants to save completed eBooks to its own folder, which can be hard to find afterward, so make sure you choose a location that you can easily find (I save mine in my Adobe Digital Editions folder). Also, I keep getting a warning box that asks "Do you want to run this program?" every time I start it up. It's kind of annoying.

    Bottom line - it's not a bad program if all you want to do is save single files in ePub format. If you want anything more ambitious, you should probably look elsewhere.
