July 15th, 2006, 06:30
i chm is one of formates which is used a lot in ebook business but there is one problem .. printing.. you need to press each page if you want to print it.. so the best way to avoid this is to transfer it pdf..

the are a lot of apps out there and you would all probably say use google.com and find suitable one .. but i must say .. i try more then 10 and i was never happy with the results.. some add or change style of page .. or its size... so .. i would like to ask you if you could recommend me which app to use to transform chm to pdf for easy printing ..

thx bye

You can use http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/chmdeco/ ("http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/chmdeco/") to decompile the CHMs into HTML files and then batch-print those.

I have tried a few of the softwares to do the conversion.
Some of them suck, some are marginal BUT, I have yet to find one
that will convert the entire CHM file and not crash my box.

The CHM file size must be causing an issue.
(For me at least)

I've successfully used chmdeco (URL above) on CHMs > 100 MB.
