    I successfully converted the magazines and Good News brochure into PDF with the scripture links but when I attempted to convert the new Bible Teach books it converted it to PDF with the links except it changed it to the old BT with the yellow cover and older text?? Do you know why that would hapeen?

    Hi. Great ovservation. While the PDF has been updated on jw.org, the ePub has not. So you started and ended with the old version. Hopefully, it will be updated soon!

    Following your excellent video I converted a watchtower magazine successfully, but have not really been able to make the text larger without losing part of the page. Is there any way I can enlarge it as I can in iBooks?

    Love your website, such a help in locating apps that support theocratic activity. Many of us had come to rely on Equipd – such a wonderful tool which is no longer available. I am looking for a way to continue preparing my WT on my iPad. If I use iBooks the scripture links pop-up window displays the scripture in print that is too small for me and is not resizable. If I use Readdle’s Documents having first used File Converter will I be able to alter the size of the font in the scripture link window? Your help with this will be much appreciated, thank you.

    I don’t know of any way to enlarge the PDF text besides in reflow mode of PDF Expert. But then the links do work. Let me dig into this a little deeper. I’ll let you know what I find.

    Thank you, a good many friends with visual difficulties will be appreciative of your efforts whatever the outcome. Equipd was so versatile…

    I downloaded the Speak Daily Text workflow into my installed copy of Workflow on my iPad Air2. When it ran, it read the TMS and SM material rather then the desired Daily Text. Is there a way to repair the link?

    I’m currently having trouble with that Workflow. I’m looking for a solution as the way the wol.jw.org site works changed since I released that Workflow.

    Question: after converting from ePub to PDF, once the scripture link is opened can you highlight within the scripture too?

    Yes you can highlight the scriptures.

    The videos are super helpful but here’s a question before I buy ‘The File Converter’ and ‘PDF Expert 5’ – with an article with scripture or article links is there anyway to highlight within that link? Some links are quite lengthy articles and it would be nice to highlight some main points within it. The alternative in iBooks is to copy the points and create a note but within that note you cannot highlight. Anyway to do so once you get this converted and use PDF Expert 5?

    Silly me – just read the last comment and see your answer as being ‘Yes’. Thanks for all the great help.

    Have you tried the Documents app? http://appchasers.com/2013/12/12/video-how-to-get-organized-for-the-meetings-and-field-ministry-with-documents-for-readdle/ That will give you and idea if the pro app PDF Expert will work.

    Just a note for all those who had bought Equipd; it’s available again in the app store, but only for those who had already bought it, not for new clients.

    I just downloaded the File Converter, PDF Expert 5 and Documents. I tried to use the “File Converter” App to download the New World Bible from JW.ORG and file it in “Expert 5” App. it will not convert it. Is there a way to convert the Bible like the Workbook and put it in Expert 5?

    Hello. So you’re downloading the NWT ePub from JW.org and from Safari choosing “Open in…” File Converter?

  19. LJH
    November 7, 2015 @ 9:32 am

    Yes, As your video on the new Workbook download procedure explained; I first went thru Safari to JW.ORG, chose the epub for the Bible, then open in File Converter using the PDF Ebooks and finally Expert 5. The File Converter would not complete its process. I know it works because it did work for the Workbook. I’m trying to get the NWT into Expert 5 and be able to open the Scriptures in the “Introduction To God’s Word” section.

    Ok thanks for the additional details. It seems the NWT is probably too big of a file for the File Converter to convert ? Is there a reason you want to use that over the JW Library app? I’m thinking maybe you want to add notes or highlighting?

    Thank You, Actually I just found out that JW Library will be updated to an IBooks like format this month. So that will work. I truly thank you for your reply. If you would be so kind as to direct me to which file type to use for the File Converter App, (PDF Documents, PDF EBooks, etc.) or how to really us the File Converter App. It would be very appreciated. At any rate I do enjoy your tutorials, Thanx a lot.
    Best Regards

    Oh that’s great news about JW Library. I heard it was coming but didn’t know when. I usually use the PDF eBook format. And here is a video I made on a general overview of using The File Converter. http://appchasers.com/2014/03/26/video-how-to-convert-any-file-with-the-file-converter-app-for-iphone-and-ipad/

    I have tried to convert Watchtower magazines from e-pub to pdf, using the File Converter app. He problem is that when it converts, it does not allow me to have pop-up scriptures. It goes to another page for the scriptures, and when I’m done and I tap the scripture to return to the page, It always goes to the first paragraph, and then I have to scroll down to the paragraph I was on. Am I doing something wrong? Please help!!!!!!!!
