Converting EPUB to PDF

I have a downloaded EPUB file and need to convert it to a PDF so I can have my book makers print it.

However, when using many of the online tools, the margins are way too small and the text doesn't fit the "printed" page.

I have an EPUB editor (Sigil) and modified the body margins but it still didn't export to PDF correctly. Even printing to PDF printer didn't preserve the new margins.

Anyone know where I can find a free EPUB editor where I can modify the margins and save to PDF preserving those margins?

BTW, I also have Adobe Digital Editions but it won't print to PDF, either.

Hi Eddie,
I use Calibre to convert from ePub to PDF:

It's not perfect, but it's pretty good...and it's free. Regards, Joe

Eddie,
One other point: Calibre can convert from many input formats to many output formats. Here's a list:
http://manual.calibre-ebook.com/faq.html#what-formats-does-app-support-conversion-to-from

So one idea to have more control over the margins and other formatting is to convert to RTF instead of PDF and then use Word to manipulate the RTF. A warning, though, that conversion to RTF is not perfect, either. You can certainly expect to do some clean-up. Regards, Joe

Took me a while to get the hang of the settings but that application worked perfectly.
Thanks...
