If you can widen the error window so that each error fits on one line, then I will go back to using it.
Feedback! Thank you!

I'm not sure if I can widen the error window, but I could get it to save the error messages in a text file next to the original folder if there are any warnings or errors.

I'll take a look and see what can be done. It hasn't bothered me because I'm used to the kinds of errors I generate when editing ePubs, but I can see that it's a problem for someone starting out, which is just the kind of person the script is supposed to be helping.

No problems, it was just annoying to have to open yet other program (text edit) to read what the messages were.

I was using yours and just leaving it there as a checklist i.e fix the first few then run it again, rinse and repeat... but because the window was so narrow, I ended up using the threepress upload.

Boy, do I wish I'd found this yesterday when I was trying to zip up my files! On the otherhand, the fiddling helps me learn new things. I downloaded it and used it with success.

Have you had a chance to change this yet, I just downloaded it then and checked. It's still the same... I guess all you need (like it's an easy thing ) is to have the results message window adjustable...

Unfortunately, I'd need to change from a simple AppleScript to something done with AppleScript Studio, which I don't have time to do. I can make the dialog a little wider by making the button bigger, but not resizable. I have added a feature that saves the error report in a text file. (Same folder as the ePub, with the ePub name with '.txt' added.)

The new version of the script will be uploaded in a minute of two.

I downloaded the 1.2 one from the first post (mod date 8/22/11) but after running it on an epub, the results window says "epubcheck 1.1 reports no errors".

Just a UI thing?

BTW this is great, Paul.

Yes, just a UI thing - I forgot to update that string in the AppleScript.

I took the liberty of updating pdurrant's applescript to run the new epubcheck-3.0b4. I don't know how to make anything but the simplest applescript but updating pdurrant's didn't seem too hard - at least I think I did it right. I tried it out on both an epub that validated and one that didn't and it seems to work. Thanks pdurrant for the original script.
