1. iSiloX 3.35 for Windows and Mac OS released
2. iSiloXC 3.35 for Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X,
and Solaris released
----------------------------------------------------------------------

=======================================
1. iSiloX 3.35 for Windows and Mac OS released
----------------------------------------------------------------------
iSiloX 3.35 addresses the following issues from iSiloX 3.3:

- Source HTML files that use only LF (0x0A) as line breaks may
result in an extraneous '>' at the end of the content.
- Font size set with <basefont> would not be held in content at
the same level.
- When removing single line breaks, the words adjoining the line
break would become abutted.
- Links within a page whose source URL does not have a path
component may not work.
- URLs with spaces would not be retrieved correctly.
- The unresolved links page would retain some of the formatting
information from the previous page, possibly making the text
hard to read or unreadable.
- (iSiloX for Windows) Copying entries with cookies or schedules
may cause a crash.

iSiloX 3.35 adds the following features to iSiloX 3.3:

- (iSiloX for Windows) iSiloX Clipper for Internet Explorer 5.0 or
later. The iSiloX setup by default installs the iSiloX Clipper
application to Internet Explorer, adding an icon to Internet
Explorer's toolbar. iSiloX Clipper allows easy conversion
of content as the user browses within Internet Explorer. The
user can either select part of a page to convert or convert the
entire page. In both cases, all applicable options normally
available within iSiloX are also available, as well as the
ability to follow links.
- (iSiloX for Windows) Added support for automatic scheduling
of iSiloX using Windows Task Scheduler to perform scheduled
conversions for document lists with entries having scheduled
conversions set.
- Added support for automatic scheduled conversions within iSiloX
when a document list is open and one or more entries have a
scheduled conversion that is due.
- Added Scheduling property page to the Properties dialog
for specifying conversion schedules for documents. Each
individual document can have one or more schedules
for conversion. Schedules can be of the following types:
- Once: A Once schedule is a scheduled conversion that occurs
once at a specified date and time.
- Daily: A Daily schedule is a scheduled conversion that
occurs at a specified time of the day either once every
specified number of days or on one or more chosen days
of the week every week. A Daily schedule can also have
an effective start and/or end date and time.
- Weekly: A Weekly schedule is a scheduled conversion that
occurs at a specified time of the day on a specified day
of the week either once every specified number of weeks
or on one or more chosen weeks of the month every month.
A Weekly schedule can also have an effective start and/or
end date and time.
- Monthly: A Monthly schedule is a scheduled conversion that
occurs at a specified time of the day on a specified day
of the month either once every specified number of months
or on one or more chosen months of the year every year.
A Monthly schedule can also have an effective start and/or
end date and time.
- Always: A document with an Always schedule is converted
whenever a scheduled conversion occurs such that at least
one document entry in the list has a due next conversion
time. An Always schedule can also have an effective start
and/or end date and time.
- Added options for removing horizontal padding to the Margins
property page of the Properties dialog. The available padding
options are:
- Keep all left and right padding
- Ignore all left and right padding
- Ignore only left and right padding specified on body
- Ignore only left and right padding specified on body,
division, and paragraph blocks
- (iSiloX for Windows) Added command line option -s for starting
a scheduled conversion.
- (iSiloX for Windows) Added command line sub-options p, s, and e
for the -H option to selectively hide the progress dialog,
successful conversion message, and error conversion message,
respectively.
- (iSiloX for Windows) For the source and destination properties,
the Delete key can be used to delete items.
- (iSiloX for Windows) In Tools/Options, added Scheduling page with
an option for disabling automatic scheduling with Windows Task
Scheduler and an option to hide the progress display during
automatic scheduled conversions.
- (iSiloX for Windows) In the Document menu, added Scheduled
Conversion Account menu command for specifying the account name,
password, and whether to perform scheduled conversions only if
logged in. This option applies only to Windows XP and Windows
2000. On other Windows versions, the menu command is disabled.

How can you convert only a part of a web page with iSiloX Clipper?
I can't seem to get it right. I highlighted the part I want then convert but it always end up in converting the whole page.

Thanks

I think this is not possible. It's on my wishlist, too.

The only thing you can do is to manually edit the html-page(s).

You can do it in HandStory, using the Copy To Palm option in the right-click menu, but only if the part of the page you want to move to the PDA is either all text or all image. If you want a mixture of text and image you can only "clip" the entire page.

In iSilo, you could try copying the part of the page you're interested in to Word then saving the Word file as html (as a web page). You can then open iSiloX, browse to the file you've just created and then convert it into an iSilo file. More complicated than the HandStory right click, but it would let you have a mixture of text, graphics and tables.

Another way (though admittedly clunky), especially if frames are used, is to right click on the link to the page you want (say from the index frame, for example), open it in a new window on its own, then convert the page you wanted from that browser window.

This only works from framed sites, though...
