Hi Ben

I've just downloaded and used your editor. It invalidates my epubs after using. I've posted all the details for you on google code.

I hope there is a simple fix because it looks like a handy little utility that will be very useful.

Hi there,

I've started dealing with the issues you raised. I have fixed the problem regarding the zipping routine. An epub that passes validation before being edited by EPubMetadataEditor now passes validation afterwards, too.

I cannot replicate your opf problem, so I am hoping you can attach the problematic epub file to the Google Code issue.

Sincerely,
Ben.

I'll run a couple more ePubs through your editor and make sure the error replicates first. The ePub in question can't be posted in a public space but if the error replicates I'll email it to you. It may take a few hours.

I notice you still have 1.0.6 as the latest version.

I have 9 ePubs which I opened with your editor and added the words "ADDED TEXT" to the description meta data. All of them had the same zipping error and the OPF error.
One, which had been run through Calibre, lost the date meta data.
The calibre meta data that was dropped was

<dc:date>2010-12-31T13:00:00+00:00</dc:date>

I can't post the ePubs in a public space but I'll email one to you.

Mark

Yes, I haven't updated any of the downloads yet, since the issue is not resolved fully. But the zipping problem has been taken care of.

Hi Mark,

The problem has been fixed, as far as I can tell. I was doing something apparently non-standard with the dates (but I must have got it from somewhere - Calibre?). Anyway, my program now preserves the way the date is handled, and so if the EPUB passes FlightCrew before, it will now pass after as well.

Let me know if you find anything else!

Sincerely,
Ben.

Hi Ben,

Your program is a very useful utility, but I have noticed that .mobi extensions (Kindle file extension) are not recognisd. Is there any plans to add this functionality. Other than that keep up the good work! Very handy tool.

Hi Rob - Welcome to MobileRead. If you want to modify mobi files, you will find more tools in the mobi sub-forum, just above this one; or you can use the command line tools of Calibre, which also has its own forum here. Calibre is also a great library management tool.
Do avoid the Lounge if you wish to manage your spare time .

Hi Rob,

Thanks for your kind words. However, there are no plans to add different formats: this program is EPub only!

As was pointed out in the previous post, Calibre is a good tool for handling all ebook formats, and can be used to edit metadata.

Sincerely,
Ben.
