    Im just getting used to using Alkido but have a few questions. Im pretty sure this is going to be rather complicated because Im using a MAC but Ill find out soon Im sure.

    1) I converted a PDF using Calibre and everything seemed fine. I didnt tamper with any options but for some reason when I opened the book in Stanza the cover pic was upside down. Anyone have any idea what went wrong?
    2) The options in Calibre, should I mess with any of them at all? Mainly all I do is change the name of the book and other information such as that along with the cover pic. Everything else I leave alone.
    3) How do I convert a DOC to EPUB?
    4) How do I get these books to be read by Alkido on my Droid?

    EDIT:
    Think I found an answer to question 3.

    Its a free online converter but it keeps giving me Error messages when I input the HTML file. Ill keep messing with it and see if Im doing anything wrong.

    I don't use a Mac, but Fink is the software most use for installing software compiled for Linux. Compile it from source if you'd like, though.

    I looked through most of the settings...i would say leave them be unless something isn't working for your needs.

    Put them on your device in /sdcard/eBooks/import, then in Alkido choose Menu > Import
