Adding e-books

Postby Sally » Wed Oct 07, 2015 6:07 am

According to the help files, I add e-books by dragging the file over the Bookpedia icon in the dock, but when I do this nothing happens. I am doing this on my MBP (Yosemite), and I select the book in iBooks, drag it to the icon. What am I doing wrong?

Sadly, iBooks has been updated and does not send the information necessary to find the file. You need to drag the original epub file over the Bookpedia icon. You will find all the iBooks files in your home library at ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.BKAgentService/Data/Documents/iBooks/Books. You can select that path and copy paste it into "Go -> Go To Folder..." menu command in the Finder.

From there you can drag the original files to Bookpedia. Since they are all named via a unique number, it's easier to select all and import them into Bookpedia. Bookpedia will skip duplicates if its not the first import and you can manage the files in Bookpedia where you can see the titles and covers.

With the El Captain you need the beta version of Bookpedia to view the epub directly in Bookpedia, bu clicking the link run the detailed view. The open in iBooks works with the oficial version.

Thank you! That worked. Mind you, I now have all my PDF timetables but they can be easily removed.
