SAP SYBASE IQ 16.0 SP8 MANUALS FIXED TO WORK WITH TABLET/PHONE PDF READERS LIKE ALDIKO

Aldiko Book Reader Premium Full v2.2.3.apkMany PDF readers for smart phones (Android/iphone) and tablets manage the pdf files Calibre_Logobased solely on the Title and Author fields in the PDF file. While for this is fine for your average book, it is not all that helpful with manuals that tend to have abbreviated or no data in the title/author fields. In the case of the manuals for Sybase IQ, I’m unable to load the manuals for say v15.4 and v16.0 as they have the same Title/Author data.

How to fix? Easy. Go get Calibre. Drop the PDF files on to the running Calibre. Edit them by hitting the E key.

In my case, I edited the “Title”, “Author”, “Tags”, “Publisher” and “Languages”:

Calibre

Calibre doesn’t modify the PDF files themselves so I will need to export the files to a custom directory. In Calibre nomenclature, this is “Saving”. Highlight all the titles you want to export and hit “S” twice. Why twice? No idea. Choose the directory.

You can now copy the exported PDF files to your phone, tablet, whatever without fear of the v16.0 version of the P&T Guide being rejected by Aldiko because the v15.4 version is already added.

Here are the IQ v16.0 SP8 manuals that I’ve ‘fixed’ to work with Aldiko. They are identical to the PDFs on sybooks with the exception of the PDF fields I mentioned previously.
