Matthias,As long as am understanding correctly, thrilled to hear Quark will soon be exporting to EPUB!To keep you up-to-date IDPF is currently working on next evolution/revision of EPUB and hope Quark keeps tabs on progress or better yet participate. Next revision has strong focus on on rich media and interactivity, as well as means to convey page level layouts http://www.idpf.org/idpf_groups/epub21w ... _v.11.html Look forward to hearing about future Quark developments around EPUB.All the Best,Michael

Hi all,

please note that Blio announced/released the first version of its eReader today:

Its currently available for Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
Other platforms (such as Android, iOS) will follow. Also more languages are scheduled to be released soon.

Quark is readying the XTension to export for the Blioreader and will start its pre-release soon. If you are interested in joining, please send me an email (via the Contact button above this post).

Installed Blio under WIn 7 64-bit yesterday but total disaster as on loading it tries to occupy the right hand third of the display maximised vertically and refreshed itself some 20 odd times before settling over about 5 seconds but with 60% of its app window off the screen to the right., Can't read prompts fully and there's no way of moving it - or closing it except via Alt+F4 but did manage to register and got a confirmation mail. Have mailed support with screen grabs.

Had a chat with their support people and now have it working reliably. Looks good and have suggested a few possible improvements. Look forward to seeing the QXP8 Xtn for this!

Hi MatthiasIt's now long past Autumn 2010 and I'm looking to see how to export from XPress into an ePub format.Has it actually happened yet or are we still waiting for this facility? If it is possible, I can't find anything about it in the QXP8.5 documentation.RegardsMark

Hi Mark,
ePub export was never scheduled for autumn, it was/is scheduled for the beginning of 2011. Blio Export was suppose to be out in autumn, which unfortunately was delayed due to events we cannot influence.
Good news are that it is in pre-release, so if you want to participate, please send me an email (using the contact button above this post).
Also, we announced the availability of Quark App Studio for iPad publishing today, please see here: p/25142/101345.aspx#101345

Thanks
Matthias

Hi Xebouquin,
you can use Calibre or other tools to convert ePubs to mobi.
