    hey guys I have a PDF of a book and I want to be able to read it on my iphone through stanza.

    The problem is, even when I export the book as ".epub" (with calibri and stanza desktop) the book is no way readable. I mean it opens, but no paragraphs, random line breaks etc.

    So is there any way that I can correctly format the PDF so it can be friendly with Stanza? Any other file extension?

    I've literally spent about 3 hours trying to work this out and this basically my last attempt. :confused:

    Although you can convert a pdf to epub, it will not maintain the formatting in the original pdf--as you have seen. No paragraphs, images or bookmarks. There is no way around this--believe me, I tried...

    Since I also had pdf ebooks I wanted to read, I downloaded the Good Reader app, which is specifically for reading large pdf files. It's great--sharp images, maintains bookmarks and formatting, etc. Well worth the 5 bucks.

    If you have Acrobat Professional, export it as an html file, then open it in Stanza Desktop. It'll retain most of the formatting.
