Latest BD update crashes

Has anyone had any luck running the 5/30/07 BD update?

I'm been happily using the 4/30/07 version for many months without problems. I thought I'd try the later version and unzipped it into the BD folder, overwriting what was there before. BD successfully starts up, but whenever I try to load a book it crashes.

Fortunately I made a backup, and have gone back to using the 4/30 version.

Any ideas what the problem might be?

Sometimes BD 05/30/2007 does crash on loading in a new book. I've found that sometimes you have to run BD and then load the book from the file menu. It's not perfect, but it does seem to work once you get the book loaded. Of course, I may have found a bug in it's LIT handling. I think it may lose line spaces. I'm going to play around with the older version and see what's what once I am back home. If so, I'll file the bug with vvv.

I think I'll stick to using the 4/30 version for the moment, at least. I tried loading three books with the 5/30 version - a LIT file, RTF file, and HTML. Everyone crashed. I gave up after that, I'm afraid .

What I should do is post the 04/30/07 version as well in case anyone has problems with the new one.

Or, you could just point them to the Wiki article on Book Designer....

I feel like the odd man out because I had problems with the 4/30 version and no problems with the 5/30 version.

I didn't find a 4/30 release when I was putting the Book Designer wiki page together, so if somebody has the link, please add it to that page as well, so we'll have a more complete list.

(that goes for any other links that anyone has -- if you're nervous about editing the thing feel free to post the links here or send them to me in a PM and I'll gladly add them myself )

The ones I've listed there are actually links back to the original files on the-ebook.org's forum -- I was trying to link back to the original source, you see. I haven't had any success in linking to MR post attachments directly, since they have funky URLs, owing to php functions. Is there a way to attach the file directly onto the Wiki page? I'm still figuring a lot of this wiki stuff out.

Ah, nevermind, I think I found the answer to my question.

I'll see to it, JSWolf. (unless it doesn't work the way I think it does)

I just copied the URL and put it in the Wiki. It actually works. I do need to register there.

Sorry, my mistake. The version I'm using is 4/12, not 4/30. Apologies for the confusion.
