Getting epub book into Supermemo


Staff member
I had a tricky epub book recently, with all kinds of complicated formatting. I tried a whole bunch of methods to get it cleanly into Supermemo, but none worked. So, after a lot of trial and error, I came across a workflow that got the job done.

1. Add ePub to Calibre (free software)
2. Right mouse click book and choose Convert.
3. Select txt as output type and run the conversion.
4. Open text file in Notepad++ (free), or your equivalent.
5. Copy all the text to clipboard.
6. Paste into Supermemo.
7. Click out of that element and into another one in your knowledge tree. It seemed to speed somethings up on my system, for some reason.

Hope that helps.
