I have just updated from an earlier working version writer2epub to the latest one and cannot get it to work at all. Yes I restarted and got the toolbar to display but clicking any button gives an error about a scripting framework error the Basic script writer2epub could not be found. I could place the whole error message here if required but as I cannot cut'n'paste from Oo.org then I will have to type it all.

1) reboot OOo after installing W2E
2) please check that the full OOo package is installed (writer, draw, calc etc)

As stated in my post I had restarted OOo (several times) and I have got a full OOo install, at least I had enough components to run earlier versions of W2E.

As it still would not do anything but display the 3 buttons and an error message if I clicked them I checked my running processes and found another instance of OOo was running, probably a crashed instance from some months ago. I killed it and tried again.

I knew immediately that something was different as the three buttons for W2E were text buttons and not icons but I could load and convert my books.

Try also to remove the extension and reinstall a fresh downloaded copy

I am not quite sure why you suggest reinstalling a new d/l of W2E. It is now working.
If you are suggesting a new install to replace the text buttons with icon ones then I will decline. I hate icons - text is easier to understand.

He was being nice and trying to help you get it working. If anything he was suggesting that you weren't as clear as you could have been stating that your problem is solved.

I had a similar problem after installing a newer version of W2E. So, Luke's advice is not a bad idea.
I saw that there were two instances of W2E in the Extension Manager and I removed one. After that, all worked fine.

I have a problem with the version 1.1.10 when it's trying to export images to epub. Give an error than it's not present in then earlier version.

'The variable Errorhandler is not defined' or so. It hang the soffice process and i'm able to see that the error is produced in export images

As usual, please send to me the file that causes problems at writer2epub[at]gmail.com

Anyway, I discover that some .doc and .rtf files can have, by error, multiple hidden instance of the same images, and this can crash the extension. Please check that the images present in your files are not hidden, and that are not inclueded in text frame or inside a tabe.

Thanks

Luke

Problem solved.

I delete the image, put it another once, and works fine.

Not exactly a bug, but note : the final release of LibreOffice 3.3 is now available :

LibreOffice 3.3

I hope a version of Writer2Epub will be soon available for it !!

I'm running Writer2ePub with LO 3.3.0 and it works quite fine ... except of two issues I came across:
  1. W2E doesn't get metadata out of an ODT file name ("T - A - Y" is defined) and
  2. W2E doesn't write the metadata into the ODT source file.
Both work fine under OOo.

Hi Luke,

Great work!

I'm just launching a new book and want to have an epub version. The output of writer2epub is not too far off what I want. There are a few things I need to fix though:

** heading link ids get changed to 'headering_id_xx'. This results in the Writer generated table of contents breaking, as the links remain pointing to the writer generated heading ids.

** bookmark links get removed. so 'the table on page 34 shows' becomes 'the table on page shows'. I know page numbers don't apply when epubs are reflowed anyway, but I think keeping the links and the original numbers is the best option as it avoids information loss and allows print and e versions to be used together. I have lots of 'see page ...' so I really need this fixing.

those two above are the issues that affect me the most

** images in frames don't appear when viewing the epub, but are exported. I guess this is fixed by taking the images out of the frames, although that could be a hassle with formating in some cases.

** in my book source file two tables that were directly one after another caused the plugin to crash. putting the first table within a frame, fixed the issue.

I've viewed the epub in fbreader, calibre and lucidor.

I don't know anything about openoffice plugins or BASIC, but I'm an experienced programmer. So I'm going to try and fix these issues myself now as I want to put the file out in the next week if possible (the PDF to epub output from Calibre is quite far from what I need). Any advice or suggestions you could offer would be much appreciated.

Regards,
Joe

I write W2E under LibreOffice 3.3, and test it under OpenOffice and NeoOffice

Thanks, I will check for it.
Can you send me some .odt examples to writer2epub[at]gmail.com?
Thanks
