Hi Robert. It does depend on what the student's preferences are, too. Most of my students don't want an ePub, they want something different. I find blind students are happy with ePubs, while sighted students do not like them at all. They prefer something that comes to them separated by chapters that they can use with their technology, so that's mainly what we provide for them.

There really is no reason to break the epub out since it will have navigation capabilities already in place.

Hi all,

I received an ePub file from Macmillan this afternoon. Can it be broken into chapters for easier navigability or saved into a PDF file? I did message the publisher on Access Text to see if they had a PDF file available.
