I need some help/suggestions for how to rescue the content of an iBook my father-in-law have written.
What I know is this:
- It’s written in iBooks Author
- The source file might be corrupt (it can’t be opened he says - I have not seen this file)
- The actual book is on his older iPad
- It’s close to 100 pages with historic data about a village in Sweden
I want to help him rescue the content of the book but I can’t figure out how to do it. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to do this?
My initial thought are
Try to get the corrupt(?) file to see if I can open it or extract the data. I don’t know if this file actually exists/contains any data. First attempt would be Pages, if that doesn’t work I’ll use BBEdit and see if I can get to the data. Unfortunately, I’m not at all sure that this file actually is the source file or that I can get hold of it.
Second plan idea is to somehow get the iBook from his iPad onto one of my machines but I can’t figure out how to do this.
Any ideas/suggestions for how to do this?
