0.3.2 Opening Error

MacOS 10.6.5

When I right click on on an ePub file and choose open with Sigil, I get this message:

Application can't be opened (-35).

I can, however, launch Sigil by double clicking on the app.

Thanks.

AFAIK, sigil does not have a StdIn.

AFAIK it does, and my AFAIK beats your AFAIK.

Thanks for the responses, but I still don't have an answer that I understand.

What is the tracker supposed to tell me?

My standard response to issue reports in the forum is to link to the ReportingIssues wiki page which documents the correct procedure. For reasons unknown to me, I mistook you for a forum regular who already knows the place issues should be reported. My apologies.

Anyway, report the problem on the tracker in the manner described in the linked wiki page.

I'll post my issue via wiki.

I'm new to your app.

There is another issue; I'm not sure this a bug.

The undo feature doesn't seem to work in my tests.

In this example, as a test, once I've applied a header 3 to this text, I can't undo it—that is bring it back the way it was.

<p class="heada" xml:lang="en-us" xmlns:xml="http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace">FOR THE BIRDS</p>

This is what I end up with; the text has lost its formatting and son on.

<p>FOR THE BIRDS</p>

The "header" tool is a little weird to use (Bookview)
Single click on the line (includes any wrapped text)The tool should say the current formatting.
Just set it to "Normal". Same thing applies when setting a heading. Single click, do NOT select all the text.

Header/ Original Post

I'll try your suggestion. Thanks.

Also, regarding my original post: I tried right clicking another test ePub file, which then did open Sigil. Could be the other ePub had been corrupted.

Setting the text back to normal doesn't work properly; it does remove the heading number but the formatting is no longer the same as the original text.
