Have you tried using a style (either paragraph or character style) and in the "fonts" tab of the style properties, apply a background colour? (bottom right of the dialog)

Seems to work for me.

I can select the text, choose the Format/Font menu command, and use 'bg colour' field to choose the colour. Alternatively, I can edit a named paragraph or character style and do the same thing. I know it. But unfortunately the background colour will be associated with the text rather than the box containing it. Try it and you can see it.
I heard that I can alternatively add html code with a div to my content, marked with the "HTML" style, but I do not know how

P.S.
When I start a new text line, a blank line is automatically generated. How can I delete this blank line?

Are you meaning in the editing window in Jutoh itself? In some respects this is only partially WYSIWYG, and in the display there the background only appears to underly the text, not (for instance) if you have an indent at the start or if the text doesn't extend to the margin in the bottom line.

But when you generate the epub, the background then shows as a full rectangular block, margin to margin on all lines, as in your sample. Is that not what you get?

You can modifythe style by going into the Edit Style dialog, highlight the style, but then instead of clicking on Edit, click on Properties. There, you have the option to "Use Custom CSS". Your alternative code goes in there, and if you click the checl-box this code will be used for the style in your generated epub.

Sorry, I'm not sure what you're referring to. Can you give a quick run-down of the steps you're using?

Question

So it looks in MS-Word 2010:



Exactly so it should be also shown in the ebook.


If I give this into jutoh, it looks thus:




In the reader it looks so:



The background colour is associated with the text and this is wrong. It should also be no white lines between.


When I try it with a HTML-Code over "Format -> Insert -> HTML Object", it looks into jutoh so:



The first Code ist:
<p class=MsoBodyText align=center style='text-align:center; mso-line-height-rule:exactly;background:#D9D9D9;mso-background-themecolor:background1;
mso-background-themeshade:217'>

The second code is:
<p class=MsoNormal style='background:#D9D9D9;mso-background-themecolor:background1;
mso-background-themeshade:217'>

In the reader ist looks so:



With the HTML-Code is the Backround-colour-field right, but there are white lines too and the field with the colour is not continuous. Also the justification of the text is not correct.

It should looks how in Word 2010, too

I think you need to code it by hand, I do not think you can do that with Jutoh.

Hello Heiko,

Sorry if I didn't explain adequately how to do this when we corresponded by email.

You can use a div as follows:

<div style="background:#D9D9D9;">
(your regular Jutoh content)
</div>

Apply the "HTML" paragraph style to the div start and end tags (but not to your content inbetween).

I think your question about not adding a blank line refers to the after-paragraph spacing in the style you are using, so you need to edit the style and set the spacing to zero.

Regards,

Julian

Question

Hi Julian,

it does not work 100%.

So it looks in Jutho:




The following settings was made​​:

HTML-Code1:
<div style="text-align:center; background:#D9D9D9;">

HTML-Code2:
</div>

The justify-text-formatting of the title does not work when I use a HTML-Code, because the text does not appear centered in the reader. So I've changed your html-code 1 with "text-align:center".

Here you can see the paragraph-Formatting:




The Text is centered (but it does not work) and the spacings are "0".

In the Reader it looks so:




I do not understand why a blank line is after the heading.
How do I get away?

Hello Heiko,

I'm afraid I can't really tell what's going on, but if you can email me your .jutoh file, I'll take a look.

Thanks,

Julian

I expect in the next couple of weeks. Are you looking for anything in particular?

Exclamation

Hi Julian,

thank you for your service!

The problem should be resolved with the update.
Look how it is done in MS-word.

When I press "Shift + Enter" there is no blank line after the heading, but then the following text takes on the formatting of the heading.
That should be changed.

It would be good if you can adding a feature for superscript numbers and letters.

P.S.
Du solltest das Programm auch ins deutsche Řbersetzen, da der Deutsche ebook-Markt vermutlich der gr÷▀te in Europa ist

Question

Now I have another problem with Jutho:

I want to insert a graphic (4,3 x 4,3 cm) into the ebook.
It is a PNG-Picture in RGB.
This is the graphic in MS-Word 2010:




But this is the same graphic in Jutho:



The graphic is shown too large in Jutho.
What must we do, that the graphic will be shown correctly in Jutho?

I'll answer this and your other tech support questions by email since that's quicker for both of us.

In the file section-0004.html you have an ID that is used elsewhere. Edit the file and change the ID to something unique or have a look at the ePub (as a whole) and see if you can just delete the ID.
