I think I've pretty much mastered the technique of creating "omnibuses" from separate book sources now. I no longer use the "Join Books" tool - it has a habit of chopping books off in mid-text, and can't handle books with pictures where both call them "image1", "image2", etc. What I do is run two instances of BD - one for the omnibus, and one for the book to be added to it. I open the book I want to add in the separate instance of BD, then copy it and paste it into the other instance to form the omnibus. That way all the pictures come across properly even if the originals have clashing names for the image filenames.
There's another anomoly I've discovered that may be useful for the contributors here: If one goes to OPEN BOOK under FILE - and if the file happens to be an HTML file - then one often doesn't get all the text. Instead, I also do what you do: I'll open the HTML file and then just copy and paste into BD; at least that way, I can be assured that I have everything.

Thanks for the tips.
