Can this be accessed through the GUI or is it just through command line?

Thanks for all the great work!

At the moment only through the commandline, once it stabilizes more I'll integrate it into the GUI.

Kovid. I've looked at a couple of examples of books produced by BookDesigner and the full justification is hardcoded into the text. Being able to turn it on and off is got to be a better option - personally I'd rather have the ragged margin than ridiculous amounts of space between words.

The open source LRF viewer supports hyphenation, so you won't get the huge spaces in lines.

Lots of spaces versus lots of hyphens versus justification versus smaller font size: there's always a trade-off to be made somewhere, and as as with all things the choice should be with the reader wherever possible.

Kovid, you are like a machine over there man!! You are doing everything that Sony should be doing. You rock. So will this view show us exactly what the file will look like on the Reader? Or is it just a viewer for .lrf files.

The reason I ask is that it is time consuming to make a book then load it onto the Reader, only to find out the spacing is wrong or something. It would be cool if I could just check it in the viewer first...

Wow, I just started using this. I like the interface and you even included a text search function. Very cool. I have actually been using color graphics in my lrf files (hey someday Readers are gonna be color right?!), and your viewer does a great job of rendering those perfect too.

So when Sony dives in and tries to hire you away from us, you won't forget us little people right?!?!

I can add an option to turn off full justification. If you open a ticket for it, I'll make sure it gets into the next version.

That was one of the primary reasons I made the viewer. As I hated having to load books on the reader or boot windows to see the end result of a conversion. However, the rendering is not going to be exactly the same as SONY's reader, primarily because my reader supports hyphenation. You can turn it off with the --disable-hyphenation command-line option.

Another point off difference is that my reader uses different default fonts (the liberation family) as these have real italic and bold typefaces and support a far larger range of unicode characters. But their size characteristics are very similar to the Reader's default fonts, so it should not make much difference.
