Hints and Tips
Something that might be added to the Hints and Tips.
Book Designer does not save the working file to the Last File Folder until BD is shutdown. On large files, you might notice a short interval between the time you hit close and the time BD actually goes away. Until shutdown the Last File Folder contains the last book worked on. All interim saves are kept in the Temp Folder in a subTmp folder of its own and will be found in the highest numbered tmp. The other subTmp Folders contain previous books.
When a book is loaded into BD, the name of the book/file appears in the top left of the window next to the BD icon for window size and close. Sometimes, a file will load but no name appears in the upper left. I have found this with HTML files even from Project Gutenberg. If this happens, all work done will not be properly saved and the next time BD is started, a New Book screen will come up. Why this happens I have not yet found out. When this happens,though, immediately create a BD book file. Shut down BD and open the BD folder. You will see a file with a garbled name but the word untitled contained in the name, Rename the file to the book name and double click on the file to start it in BD and you will see the book name in the proper place. From then on everything works fine.
Hope this might help someone.
