Q3. How do I open the PDFs?

A. You'll receive links to download them monthly from the web. We also supply a special plug-in for Adobe Reader for Windows, which you'll need to install to open your PDFs.

Q6. How do I subscribe to EPE Pocketmags?

A. You can visit the Pocketmags website here. Pocketmags is responsible for hosting this version.


Q7. What is the difference between EPE PDF Version and the Pocketmags version?

A. Pocketmags relies on having an Internet connection to view EPE online in ebook style. It's also compatible with several platforms. At the current time you can also try the Offline Reader for Windows - available from the PocketMags website. It lets you download your copy onto your computer, and read and print pages later, without an Internet connection. The Offline Reader is a Beta version.


EPE PDF Version is an exact copy of EPE printed edition that you download as a PDF. You need a PC or laptop with Adobe Reader for Windows to read it like any other PDF. A one-time plug-in for Adobe Reader is also supplied by us. You can save PDFs to hard disk for future reference.


Q8. I assume that all of the digital copies I purchase from Pocketmags will be available to me forever, so that if I want to refer to an article that was published five years ago will it still be available online?

A. Yes, purchased copies will always be available. You can delete and re-download again magazines held in your account. There is no longer a need to back them up. Rest assured we know that readers are passionate about their magazine collection and should anything ever change with PocketMags we will take any necessary steps to make sure readers will still have access to their copies.


Q9. The whole idea of a digital subscription was so that I could read on my laptop during commutes and travel when no reliable Internet was available, and to have a digital archive for when an article refers to a previous project. Please tell me there is a download option!

A. Yes there is - you can now subscribe to EPE PDF Version for Windows.monitor


Q10. I hope that I can still get the software and firmware that I will need for projects. I do not just want to read on screen.

A. Of course! EPE software and project firmware will still be available in the normal way from the Library of our website.


Q11. Can I transfer the balance of my Pocketmags subscription to EPE PDF Version?

A. We will arrange this on an individual basis. Please contact us.
