I know, that's why it's confusing. But I have followed the instructions, and they clearly work for other aspects.
I copy the files to the "Program Files > Book Designer > BookCleaner" folder (1.bcf, 2.bcf). Note that there are also 3 other files already there (MiddleDashes_after.bcf, MiddleDashes_before.bcf, RemoveRepeatedEmptyLines.bcf).
Then in Book Designer I go to "Tools > Book Cleaner" and then select 1.bcf in the "input file: before formatting" drop-down box, and 2.bcf in the "input file: after formatting" drop-down box. Then close the window.
I have checked regularly that the 1.bcf and 2.bcf files are still loaded as described above, and they always are. Should the "loaded book" section be marked as whole? I assume that is only if you want to manually trigger the clean-up again, and when the book is first loaded the cleaner files run?
Am I missing anything else? My language is selected as German, and I think I have fairly basic settings selected for the program overall - see the attached pics for screencaps of my settings and the Book Cleaner window.
I have noted in other posts that MS Office seems to have some effect omn Book Designer functions - is this also the case for Cleaner?
Thanks for any help.
