I open BD then drag and drop the source text into the BD window. At the bottom of the window, there's a little commentary, where it tells you that it's finding paragrah ends, running book cleaner etc.
Do you get this?
I am almost always opening an HTML document in Book Designer (File > Open), sometimes a LIT, DOC/RTF or TXT file. But always via Open File not cut and paste. I also see the little "status" message saying "finding paragraphs ends" and so on.

Having wasted your time, I have now just run some further tests, and it seems I am getting em-dashes preserved in most documents I try. I don't know what happened, but I can only guess that I had one strangely formatted source document that meant I lost the em-dahses. I will keep an eye on how it performs with further documents. My apologies.

Of course, I still have the problem of losing images when the Book Cleaner files run on opening a new source file. This is quite troublesome, and I guess we are unlikely to get that issue fixed?

Thanks again for your help, and apologies for the false alarm.
