What formats do the eBooks come in?

The eBooks sold in the Nicolesy Store come standard in PDF format. In some cases, they will also be sold as ePUB and MOBI.

How do I get the eBook from my computer to my device?

This will depend on the type of media you use to view the eBook; here's a list with some commonly used devices:

  • PDF to Tablet (iBooks, etc.): PDF files on iPad or Tablet devices will open directly as a PDF; no need to unzip or extract the file before downloading your purchase.

    From an iPad or iPhone: Download the PDF using your iPad. Once the file fully downloads and is open inside of Safari, click on "Open in iBooks" in the top right. (If you don't see that option, then tap once in the middle of your screen for it to appear.) The eBook will automatically open up in and be added to your iBooks library. You can also select "Open in" to add the eBook (PDF file) to another application of your choosing.

    From a Computer: If you download the file on your computer and want to transfer it to a tablet, I suggest using a cloud-based storage system, such as Dropbox or Google Drive. Once you have the file synced to your tablet, open it up and then select the option to "Open in iBooks" (or the PDF viewer of your choice). Here's a link to more info on the Apple support website:  http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4227

  For information on your specific device, please check with the manufacturer's website or contact their support.

The PDF opens in my browser window. How can I save it to my computer?

Some browsers will, by default, open up a PDF file into the browser window instead of automatically saving it to the computer. If you would like to save it to your computer, try the following steps:

  1. First, wait for the PDF to fully load.
  2. Next, look at the bottom of the screen for icons or options to use with the PDF (you may need to hover your mouse over the area for them to appear).
  3. Then, select the "Save" option and you will be able to save the PDF file to a location of your choosing. (Below are examples of what this looks like in Chrome, and Safari.)
