As I know, Atlantis Word Processor can be run on Mac under Windows emulators. Have you tried Darwine or Parallels Desktop?

One of our users reported a problem related to iPad. If I understand things correctly, iPad does not support the "page-break-before: always" CSS attribute in EPUBs. Page breaks are rendered only between XHTML files when viewed on iPad. Can anyone confirm this? Thank you.

Atlantis Word Processor 1.6.5.2 has been released for betatesting. It includes a number of changes to its "Save as eBook" feature. Page breaks from source documents are now saved to EPUBs differently. Page margins of eBooks can now be controlled through the GUI of Atlantis. Generic font families (or basic fallback fonts) are now automatically saved to EPUBs. Plus there are a few bug fixes.

You can find details on the new version of Atlantis Word Processor here:
http://www.atlantiswordprocessor.com..._1_6_5_002.htm

This new version of Atlantis Word Processor can be downloaded from this page:

Unfortunately, the way you specify margins doesn't actually work as people might expect.

Margins specified in the body element will apply to the entire flow rather than to individual pages within that flow, so code such as
Code:
body{margin-left:5%;margin-right:5%;margin-top:5%;margin-bottom:5%}
will produce a 5% margin at the top of the first page in the flow and a 5% margin at the bottom of the final page in the flow, but no top and bottom margins on individual pages within the flow.

What you want to do instead is this:
Code:
@page {
    margin-top: 12pt;
    margin-bottom: 1pt
}
body {
    margin-left: 5%;
    margin-right: 5%
}
Notice that I used points instead of % for the top and bottom margins - unfortunately ADE's handling of the @page rule is slightly bizarre. If you use % here then ADE will translate it internally into some distance that does not change with changes in the height of the display port*. A margin-top of 100% becomes a margin of roughly 75pts, and a margin-top of 5% is roughly the same as a margin of 4pts (i.e. far too small). In this case it is far safer to specify the margins in points, which should produce a consistent result across reading systems.

The actual size of the bottom margin on a page is governed by the reader's line-fitting algorithm, so I generally just use a very small value there to prevent text from colliding with the bottom of the viewport, which effectively produces a bottom margin a little less than one line-height on the page. It would be a good idea to provide separate inputs for the top and bottom margins so that users can control this as they wish.

*In contrast, left and right margins specified using % in the body do scale properly with viewport changes.

Thumbs up

In Word I can easily change from 'normal' to 'smart' quotes by doing a replace command. I replace " by " and Word automatically creates smart quotes. It also works somewhat for single quotes.

I tried to do the same trick in Atlantis, but no luck. The " stays " after replace. Is there another way to change from normal to smart quotes in Atlantis other than by hand?

In MS Word, it is rather a side effect than a proper feature. As for me, it is strange when a word processor replaces X with Y when you ask it to replace X with X.

Atlantis Word Processor has the "AutoCorrect After-You-Type" tool. Choose the "Tools | AutoCorrect..." menu command of Atlantis. It scans the active document for text fragments that might need to be corrected (including "straight quotes to smart quotes" corrections). Each reported correction can be accepted or rejected. The "Tools | AutoCorrect..." command of Atlantis suggests corrections according to the settings specified in the "Tools | AutoCorrect Options..." dialog. For example, you can instruct Atlantis to replace straight quotes with French or German quotes.

Untill now a found it a rather nice 'side effect'. I could not get the autocorrect to work earlier. But that was because I did not see it was some kind of script/program. Great!
