I'm also looking for epub lister, if I understand correctly, sumatrapdf is able to work as epub lister. But how to get sumatraPDF as lister in TC ?
It is an exe file, and I TC requires .wlx files.
Thanks for your support

Install the SLister plugin from
http://totalcmd.net/plugring/slister.html
Then add EXT=EPUB to the detection string in wincmd.ini

To use the installed SumatraPDF store the following slister.ini
in the plugins dir

[slister]
path=c:\Program Files\SumatraPDF\SumatraPDF.exe

In my case its the actual x64 version 3.1.1 from
http://www.sumatrapdfreader.org/download-free-pdf-viewer.html
You have to modify the ini for your environment of course.
This solution works fine for Calibra bookmarked epubs too.

Trying to figure out why Quick View (Ctrl+Q) is not working for Calibre-bookmarked epubs, i took the time and the sLister source code and ran it in a debugger session. To my surprise, i found out it is not a problem with plug-ins, but the issue is with TC itself.

Perhaps the issue has been reported already somewhere, but i was unable to find a matching report (well, nsp already suspected TC being the culprit, but his comment doesn't really qualify as a bug report). Hence, i filed a bug report detailing my findings. It can be found here: http://www.ghisler.ch/board/viewtopic.php?p=308444

(Yes, i am aware that the discussion here about Calibre-bookmarked epubs is already a year old. Still, i think it would helpful to provide further information and closure for this particular issue)

If the embedded *.txt files ( META-INF\calibre_bookmarks.txt ) in Calibre-bookmarked epubs are responsible for your issue, yes, this is a known (intended) TC behavior, see:
http://www.ghisler.ch/board/viewtopic.php?p=253437#253437

Ghisler confirmed that this will finally be optional/fixed in TC 9:

The epubs I reported here turned out to be a corrupted/non-standard format. I gave up finding out why they view in Lister but not in Quick View (seemed like a timing issue) after I converted them to PDF.

LOL. Thanks for the update. I searchd for topics involving META-INF or epub. It didn't come to my mind to search for "Ctrl+Q". :)
