    I have a few magazines that are in pdf form and I wanted to view them in zinio. Does anyone know how to make this work? Can it work. I do not know how to convert from one to the other. Please let me know, thanks.

    5 years later! Any way to convert pdf to zno ? ? ?

    I love reading my books and magz on my ipad.
    I don't really like ibooks and I am used to zinio,
    and have built up a large collection. I just want
    one reader, and since it's a lot of legwork to convert
    zno to pdf, i wonder if the reverse would be easier
    by chance. I have far more zno files as well, so
    it makes sense for me.
    Any body have ideas?
    thanks!

    I have looked and looked. So far there is no easy way to print from zinio to pdf. Without doing a page at a time.

    And on the flip side, I don't know of anything that will convert them to zinio files.

    I have been looking but unable to locate anything to do it. Of course there is the obvious which I haven't done and just change the extension. :)

    I've been looking for a while too and no luck. The only reason I want this is because zinio is so heavy and slow where as pdf runs through os x preview snappy and light. I don't even know how to locate the .zno files. It told me the path but it is non existant.

    It should be under your User Name...

    Users\Your Name\Zinio Library

    At least that is where all my files reside at.

    Ahhh.. I should have mentioned I was on SL 10.6.8

    Well that is good that you found it! Best of luck and if you do find anything let me know as I am also interested. Love the app but I don't like the fact you are locked into their system.

    Yeh I like zinio but it would be great to run it under os x preview instead. less memory /cpu hogging. Still haven't found a viable solution and stopped looking now. I can only hope zinio drops adobe air in place for something more unique to each OS they run under.
