Thanks Harry. I should have been more clear with my question. I knew that part of the "options" tab, but I want to make the first letter of the paragraph bigger and I don't know how to do it. If it is even possible.

hmmmmm, think I like this program now...... I have about 20 books loaded on my reader...... after I finish the one I am reading I may just have to delete all the others and start over from scratch and use this program...

One of the great things about BD and LRF files is that the files are smaller than RTF. On many of them they are only 10% the size of the RTF and seldom are they more than 25% of the RTF. I currently have 43 books loaded and still have over 65 MB of space on the internal memory.

I think we need to start a cheat sheet or best practices for BD.

ya know if anyone get the perfect sizing you can save it and could share? I would love the top and bottom margins to fit the screen better...... wasting space on the bottom that could hold a few more lines...... I have played with it with all aspects but I guess I don't get it yet....... <sigh> Hell I have been playing more with this program today than I have done anything else................ don't know if that is a good or a bad thing, LOL

What format was the book in?

BD5 seems to currently have problem with linked HTML files, it takes the root and ignores the rest. I have had to build consolidated HTML files to get around this problem. Also CSS seem to dive it to fits at times.

I just changed this txt file to an rtf file and ran it........ now It saved 27 pages.....I must be missing a setting somewhere..... although if I loaded up the whole book, it's not saving the whole book. Bummer!

You have the old BD, it had a number of bugs in it's Librie routines. You really need the latest update, and use the "Make Sony Reader" menu. It's significantly faster, easier to use, and produces _much_ better books.

What OS are you using? I had a lot of problems in Vista, but I've had no hassles in XP.

I do have the update, have the sony reader button on the top toolbar...... I removed the old one and installed from scratch again....... So this time I was able to do it with one book, all the rest it's only doing 27 pages or so.

I am using windows XP
