How do I replace just my PDF?
How do I replace just my PDF?

I am using Dropbox mode, and I want to replace my PDF with one I've generated myself. But I want to keep Leanpub's generated EPUB files.

You can actually do this self-serve, without switching to our Upload writing mode.

The steps are:

  1. Make a folder called "custom" in the root of the Dropbox folder for your book (it should be a sibling to your manuscript folder).

  2. Put a file in there called "SLUG.pdf", where SLUG is the name of your book in its URL.  If you have a sample as well, you can put a file called "SLUG-sample.pdf" in there too.

  3. Re-publish your book.

We will then generate the EPUB files for your book, and use the PDF files you have provided.
