How to save documents in PDF for use in iPhone iBook

We started saving documents in PDF and placing them in  iBook.  We noticed that the PDF don't behave like the sample books from iBook Store you download; that is, the contents are much easy to read and you can change The letter size to accommodate your reading.  Our PDF don't have this feature and understand that they don't because in Windows Desktop there is no option.

What we are looking for is how can we save a document in PDF or another format so we can have it in iBook and enjoy a more led gable reading (with the way PDF are in iBook the letter are small and have to swipe left-right to keep reading).

You'll likely want to convert them to ePub for better viewing in iBook. This free tool helps: http://toepub.com/

3D Issue is also a service I know that does this (it provides you opportunities to edit the design of your pdf too). Here is their quick guide on how-to do this through their software: https://www.3dissue.com/how-to-publish-your-content-to-ibooks-part-1-pdf-to-ibooks/ 

What version do you have the original PDF in, do you have access to the original InDesign files? If so, you can export them as ePubs to help make them view better.

Hi sorry for the delay.

To answer your question, the version of oure PDF is from MS Word "Save As PDF".  If InDesign files you mean if we have the source doc or we created them, yes.


Nevertheless, the link worked like we expected!  Thanx!  Everything in our PDF are now much more easier to read and navigate thru.

Now, we tested the link with a sample doc, but some PDF have sensitive data.  Is there any free apps we can download and use safely?

Happy to have been able to help!

I'm not sure I understand your second question about sensitive data. I don't think there are different apps to use which block select data, that would have to be done in the source document.

We don't want to block the data.  What we meant is that there PDF that has financial info or personal info and we feel uncomfortable uploading the file online.  So we were thinking if there is the same solution but instead of online service, an apps we can install in our Windows PC.
