Book Cleaner files v1.7 2009-02-20

With the help of Harry T and vvv I've been able to tweak Book Cleaner (part of Book Designer) and now I have them set so they work well. 1.bcf and 2.bcf are before and after files 1 is before and 2 is after.

Just put them in your bookcleaner directory and then run Book Cleaner from BD and you'll be able to make use of them.

I had setup in Book Cleaner a fix so OE did not become emdashes. That problem was because when I did it, I was using the French language. Well, because I'm using German, that no longer needs to be fixed. Also, that fix causes graphics from LIT files to sometimes be missed. It picks up the cover, but not the rest of the graphics. So anyway, here is version 1.7. If you have version 1.0-1.6, please update with this version.

Added 1.8 to fix loading of graphics

Book Cleaner files version 1.1

Fixes a St. where it can cause a new paragraph.

What else does it do other than correct the "St." problem?

The old one fixed emdashes too. I was just about to search for this file again, JSWolf (I apparently wiped the ones I had ), so I'm especially glad that you chose today to update it.

Version 1.2 fixes a mistake I made with . And that caused things like Mr. and to become Mr. And. I forgot to check case specific. Now it works fine. Should be no more bugs.

One thing that was forgotten to be mentioned is that in order to preserve the proper dashes (reglar, emdash, etc.), when you go to make the Sony Reader (LRF) file, select the options tab and under misc make sure dashes is set to "as it is" and then dashes will not be converted.

I only remembered when trying to help HarryT fix the emdashes with the Queens Own FBI series and he said he's using the Book Cleaner 1.3 files. The default I think is to convert the dashes. And that does blow away the emdashes for sure.

Unclear about the install instructions. I installed Book Designer from a week ago. I'm assuming book cleaner files go in C:\Program Files\Book Designer 4.0\BookCleaner . I'm supposed to add only 2.bcf but not 1.bcf? Do I need to rename it or overwrite anything? The directory already has MiddleDashes_before and MiddleDashes_after.

1.bcf and 2.bcf both go in the bookcleaner directory. Then run Book Cleaner and then select 1.bcf as the input file before formatting and 2.bcf as the input file after formatting. Then close Book Cleaner and load the next book and it'll do it's magic. But, every so often, run Book Cleaner to make sure they are still selected. In the versions of BD before July 2007, it was possible to lose the BC settings and the BC files would just need to be selected again. Don't know about the July 2007 version and if it loses it's settings.

In particular, if you open a second copy of BD (very useful when compiling "omnibus" books to copy and paste from one to another), the 2nd copy will have the BD "default" settings rather than the ones you've selected.

If have some problems with dialogs. From the original PDF, dialogs start with two spaces and are separeted by a line break. It looks like this:

Code:
Sein Gesichtsausdruck blieb unverändert. Seine gefalteten
Hände ruhten friedlich auf dem Deckenrand, und die Hitze, in
der ich mir vorkam wie ein Suppenhuhn beim Sieden, schien
ihn nicht einmal zu wärmen.
  »Muß ich höflich sein?« fragte ich. »Oder geht´s auch mit
Offenheit?«
  »Ich habe nicht bemerkt, daß Sie unter großen Hemmungen
leiden, Mr. Marlowe.«
  »Streunen die beiden Mädchen gemeinsam durch die
Gegend?«
  »Ich glaube kaum. Sie rennen wohl auf getrennten und leicht
voneinander abweichenden Wegen in ihr Verderben. Vivian ist
verzogen, anspruchsvoll, raffiniert und ziemlich skrupellos.
Carmen ist ein Kind, das den Fliegen gern die Flügel abreißt.
Keine von beiden hat mehr Moral als eine Katze. Ich übrigens
auch nicht. Kein Sternwood hat je welche gehabt. Fahren Sie
fort.«
  »Vermutlich hatten sie eine gute Erziehung. Wissen Sie, was
sie tun?«
After conversion, dialogs are no more separeted, which is hard to read. It looks like that:

Code:
Sein Gesichtsausdruck blieb unverändert. Seine gefalteten
Hände ruhten friedlich auf dem Deckenrand, und die Hitze, in der
ich mir vorkam wie ein Suppenhuhn beim Sieden, schien ihn nicht

»Vermutlich hatten sie eine gute Erziehung. Wissen Sie, was sie tun?«
Any idea, how this can be fixed?
