BookDesigner Observations

Recently while converting The Odyssey I noticed a few things abut BD:

1. When I imported the verses directly from the TXT file of Project Gutenberg they ran together into one large block. However, if I first imported the file to Word and made an RTF they retained their structure when imported to BD.

2. When you place a manual page break in a chapter it stops reporting the chapter title in the bottom right corner. I initially inserted a page break after the introduction material for each book of The Odyssey and before the verses. I later made the introduction part italic to separate it from the verses.

For point 1, run the Gutenberg text file through Gutenmark and then put the generated HTML into BD, you'll get far superior results.
