Hi all. I am a technical artist for an aviation company in the US that has presented me with a task I need guidance on.
The project is:
One of the products this company creates is custom aircraft maintenance manuals (as well as other documents for our clients). They want to be able to provide our clients with digital versions of these manuals that can be downloaded and read on iPad and Android tablets. Their ultimate goal is to create portals where the clients can get and download the manuals for their specific aircraft. Also, they want to explore the possibility of creating ebook files instead of using the PDF files.
Problems I am encountering:
1. I have downloaded various trial versions of software to create .epub documents for the Mac, but they do not translate the PDF properly. I don't know if this is a factor of how the PDF is written or how it is being translated by the software.
2. I have been researching how to copy the manuals over to the iPad and having local document access instead of accessing the documents via the internet. I am a PC user, so I do not know enough about the inner workings of the iPad environment to know the best route for persuing this without help from others.
Thanks in advance for all your help.
