View Full Version : BookDesigner - output file name help

01-18-2013, 10:32 AM
I use BookDesigner to format LRF files for my Sony PRS 505 and have a question. I would like to set the default output file path to use the author and title in the file name in the same way you can when creating BD files. Is there any way I can tell it to use the filename of the file it is processing


If the filename of the book to be converted is
Isaac Asimov - Complete Stories.rtf

I would like it to save as
Program Files\BookDesigner\SonyReader\Isaac Asimov - Complete Stories.lrf

Is there anyone out there who can tell me how to do this please?

ps I know that Calibre also formats lrf files but I just prefer to use BookDesigner.

Did you try quotes around the file name?

Thank you, but I don't think quotes would help. I am able to save it with the filename as I want it to be but BookDesigner just uses the title so that for the above example on the save screen I get

BookDesigner\SonyReader\Complete Stories

I have to manually type in the author name each time which is a bit of a nuisance. At one time it was doing it just as I wanted and taking the filename automtically from the input file name but I can't remember how I got it to do that. I have since had to do a reload and now can't get it back the way I had it.
