View Full Version : Questions about Book Designer

Is there a way to get BD to recognize em-dashes and reproduce them? Am working on a project now and halfway through decided to check to see what BD would do with what I had produced only to find that it's changing all the em-dashes to hyphens.

And while I'm asking, is there a way to increase the size of the font when you load a document in BD? I'm not referring to the ultimate size of the font when you produce something for the Reader, but the working document after you've loaded it in BD.

The first thing to do is grab the 2007-07-30 update at and update your BD.

The next thing to do is to use Book Cleaner to fix the loading of your source material. Download the Book Cleaner files at and setup Book Cleaner with these two files. You want version 1.3.

Also set your language to German. If you see any source that isn't German, set it to German and save. That way you'll keep accents on load.

As for the book you are working on, you'll need to reload it to fix the emdashes. You might want to start over in order to fix your emdashes. That means reloading the source and starting from scratch.
