I thought I noticed a difference in speed when I was checking out the font on the reader.....

You know since we can change the books in bookreader pretty much to any size font we want I went looking to see if there was any files which the reader had the books on your computer on at the time that you could open up in bookdesigner and then enlarge the font...... bummer, at least I didn't see anything...... so if these books are lrf where the heck are the books installed or is that stricktly on the reader? no way to find them....... sure would be nice to make some of these purchases BIGGER! But I guess if this was possible we all would have heard about it by now. ;(

BD will only write LRF files; unfortunately it won't read them, so the only way to edit a book is either in the original source, or in the HTML file that BD creates when it converts the book to its own format. There's no way to edit LRF files in BD, to the best of my knowledge.

The more I use BD, the more impressed I am with it - this is one seriously good program!

I'm now in the middle of creating an LRF "Complete Sherlock Holmes" from the HTML version on the PG Australia site; it really only "works" in BD because you can create a TOC; such a long book is almost useless without a TOC.

I'll be happy to share it with anyone else who's interested when it's finished!

What we get from the CONNECT store are in LRX format which has DRM. BookDesigner creates LRS files and these are then converted to LRF for loading into the Reader.

My best guess is that they are LRS = Librie Reader Source, LRF = Librie Reader Format, and LRX = Librie Reader Xasperating.

Harry, count me in for a copy when you're finished. I have converted a few short stories so far from Last Bow but have not even acquired the whole series.

I just finished converting 7 Pillars of Wisdom by TE Lawrence. Copies are available in LRF.

Me too! Me too! I used to be a BIG fan of Sherlock Holmes. At the moment I am contemplating buying a special illustrated edition of Sherlock Holmes. It costs £20 and it is HUGE. Just to have one for my home collection.

One of the books that survived in grand style from the cleaning (my thread called "Tipping Point") that is still going on is the two volume hardbound set of Sherlock Holmes.

Is that the Leslie Klinger "Annotated SH"? Wonderful set! Vol 3 is available now, with the four novels in it.

If you are preparing carefully some big book and are going to edit it during a long time, it is recommended to keep intermediate versions in BD format (Ctrl+F11).

Select them (double-click on the first, then shift+click on the last), then

Yeah, I got that far, vvv, but I also wanted them centered. I've since found the 'Center' option under Format -> More Transformations-> Align: Center

Sorry, should've followed up on that before now, thanks for the tip.

There is a known bug (or feature) of the Connect soft: sometimes it cuts off lrf's. Try to load your book directly to the card.
