PDF import as ebook with weird results.
I use Calibre to convert unprotected pdfs to txt files, then import the txt files into Lingq, which works well. Plus you can check the text you are uploading to Lingq.
This won't work with pdfs which are composed of scanned page images. You can check this by loading the pdf into your pdf app, then trying to copy some text into the clipboard.
IMO Calibre has an odd workflow, so consult the Help features for the conversion.
Thanks, but the pdf I was wanting to import is a vintage DLI lesson textbook and it’s 1000+ photocopied pages. I’ve used Text Fairy to import a couple of lessons, but I was hoping for a
less cumbersome method.
Did you remove the DRM from the ebook before trying to import it? Which software did you use ?
I didn’t know such a thing existed until I read this post, and even after googling it I’m not sure how to do that. It’s not a ‘published ebook’ but a vintage govt issued book scanned into a pdf.
PDF always produces weird results and often needs reformatting before importing onto Lingq. A scanned PDF will be even more difficult. You vould try using an Optical Recognition Software or app to scan the text before copying and pasting it into Lingq. When it comes to purchased ebooks, l highly recommend privileging export in an Epub format and then removing the digital protection using Epubor or Calibre. Epubor is my favourite as you can do it hassle free in just one click.
Sounds like something is wrong with that specific PDF file. You can send it to support(at)lingq.com and we'll take a look.
