Large gaps before Chapters

Hi,

When creating an LRF from a DOC using BookCreator, there is a huge gap before each chapter. This is despite me removing paragraphs etc.



It has been suggested that I post here as it is likely a calibre issue?

Is there anything I can do to remove these gaps?

Here is where my request starts in the BookCreator thread -

Many thanks,

Hi, I have attached a small sample from the book I am creating. Hopefully this is sufficient to be able to tell why there are large gaps before each chapter.

Many thanks,

It's the way the page break is specified that causes this.

Instead of using
Code:
<b><span style='font-size:12.0pt;font-family:Arial;text-transform:uppercase'><br
clear=all style='page-break-before:always'>
</span></b>
which is illegal HTML in any case since you shouldn't have <b> tags as children of <body> tags, if you use

Code:
<div style="page-break-after:always"/>
instead, it would be fine.

Thanks, guess there isn't much I can do about this as it is automatically generated by Word...

Thanks for letting me know though

Not sure if I could easily edit this as replace all...

Have you tried saving the Word document as "web page, filtered"? This will remove some of the junk that Word puts in and often solves problems. (If will at least remove "page before")

Which versions of Word have "web page filtered" as a save type? I don't see it in Word 2000.

I use Word 2003, which has it. I think it is also in later versions.
Its purpose is to strip out all the Word-specific junk.

Pie,
If you follow Kovid's suggestion, using the "DIV" tag, does this work for you?

What I'm asking if you manually modify the output html to use the div tag and run the html2lrf from the command line will this create the LRF you are after?

If you enable the debug version this will produce the HTML and the debug.txt with all the parameters used to build the LRF.

Hi =X= to be honest I haven't had much time to play around. Plus, would I be able to do a find/replace to change the tags?

No but I might be able to change the filtered HTML before building the LRF with it. I've already had to do this with ePUB/LIT to get over another issue calibre had with Word styles. As long as the pattern is detectable I should be able to do a search and replace.
