Has there been an explanation for why say a title page image will disappear when editing? Like I will open a book and as standard, it will open with titlepage.xhtml as the first portion open but it won't display the cover image.
Known issue - it displays ok in Preview view but for some unknown reason it isn't working in BV - still to be worked on.

Its a function of CKEditor and I guess its trying its best to cleanup paste from Word - so it may be useful in some cases but not others...

Nothing is 'simple' - unless you don't have to do it

The use of CKEditor for the Book Editor is not the main reason, or at least the only reason, syncing is no longer present. With the replacement of the editor all the code for updates, etc. was no longer valid. Syncing was not put back in because it always had issues in the previous versions. At the moment just getting the cursor to stay where you left it in Book View is a challenge.

There was discussion in the older thread about the possibility of looking into a live view of where you are in Code View, but that hasn't been looked at yet to see if its possible or worthwhile.

Preview View is what Split View is called now - but it is just a static view of your book. It is basically Book View without editing - but it allows testing hyperlinks (once cursor positioning is worked out), and gives you access to look at the code if you want (and if you don't want to you can shrink the split window to hide the lower part).
