Find & fix quote in split paragraphs

In Sigil this expression has been helpful:
(“[^”\r\n]*)</p>\s+<p class="calibre.">
Replace with (has a trailing space): \1

This indentifies paragraphs where a opening smart quote is not matched with a closing smart quote and joins that paragraph with the next one. Its not fool proof, but saves a lot of time.

I use calibre conversion to switch straight quotes to smart quotes. Its under "Look Feel", check by "smarten punctuation". Easier to fix its mistakes than to find and fix 'em all.

Good Luck!

You have to be careful, quite a lot of books (especially older ones), have quoted multi paragraphs - usually a long speech, where the closing quotes are missing, because it continues in next paragraph, which (usually) starts with a quote.


In calibre, you can use the 'modify e-pub' plugin that can do the smarten punctuation, without a full conversion.

I've read previous posts but my problem is either not covered in them or I simply missed it.

How can I, in the Replace field in Sigil, refer to part of the search regex given in the Find field? For example, the text
"theAmerican" should be changed to "the American".

The Search field is easy, "[a-z][A-Z]" but "[a-z] [A-Z]" does not work in the Replace field beacause Sigil replaces the regex text as a literal instead of keeping the lower case and the upper case letters, whatever they are.

I have almost no knowledge of regular expressions, please help me in this.

Use round brackets:

Find: ([a-z])([A-Z])
Replace: \1 \2

For more information search for backreferences.

I'm off topic here, as this is about a *.CBR and otherwise has nothing to do with Sigil, but the recent post reminded me I meant to inquire.

I've got a series of images with a page number added at the end, but the existing page numbering is a disaster. Is there a means of stripping any ending numbers (only), without removing numbers from other locations in the filename?

Ultimately I want my output to look like:
Terminator 2 -- ch14 pg023.jpg
With preceding zeros as placeholders to force proper viewing order.

I've tried: [0-9,3] to find the page numbers, but that removes all of the numbers in the example filename shown above.

If I try appending the $, then I get no matches. I know it has to be something I am doing wrong.

Adding page numbers back in is a straight %03d replacement which I've been doing as a second step after stripping the pages (it's a total renumber, nothing can be saved).

PS: My apologies if this message needs to be moved, but I wasn't sure where else it might be more relevant within the forums.

I take it you're extracting, using a proper re-name util, then re-packing.
Search : (.*pg)\d{1,3}(\.jpg)
(stores all upto (and including) 'pg', discard the next digits, store extension)
Replace \1<whatever inserts counter>\2
so if ? is a number counter char \1???\2
(or depending on regex you'd need $ instead of \ for group replacement.

Perkin,
Thanks for understanding what I'm doing despite me leaving the extract/fix/repack process unmentioned. I did however leave you with a bad example - that was the output, not the input.

The thing is, I cannot use "pg" as that is something I am adding. Basically the input files are variously named but with numbers at the end.

So a more realistic input page might be:
Terminator 2 23.jpg
that I want to rename into:
Terminator 2 -- ch14 pg023.jpg

There are other naming issues, but I've managed to handle them. Perhaps not optimally, but they get the job done. I just can't seem to isolate the numbers at the end of the filename and strip them. To the best of my knowledge my bulk renamer is using python flavored regex.

I haven't tried you code yet, but I will.

--edit, not sure if this helps, unfamiliar with 'extract/fix/repack process'

i think you'd need to do a couple of passes to turn 1.jpg into 001.jpg, 11.jpg into 011.jpg, etc.

Code:
(.*?\s)(\d)(\.jpg)
\100\2\3

and then
(.*?\s)(\d{2})(\.jpg)
\10\2\3

@Sabardeyn, can you give a few more (differing?) example filenames - so we can see what's consistent or what isn't, with what you would like them mapped to.

What's the name of your Batch Rename app/script, I can then scan through it's docs and try and see what the correct replace would be.

Talking Joining Paragraphs when opening and closing quotes are not in same paragraph

Good Luck!

Thank you Muskrat. This answers my question from 1/13/13 perfectly!

Step 1: I go into Calibre and change straight quotes to curley quotes, then
Step 2: I open the book in Sigil and use your Regex suggestion and it works perfectly.

At first it didn't work then I checked to see if I accidentally copied the blank space after your find expression, and I had. I backed the blank space out and it worked

I ♥ brainiacs!

This is fantastic and works great. I swapped the double quotes to single quotes then to find those within the string. It also found a couple of wrong direction quotes for me as well. Edit: And found a few instances of 2 single quotes where a double quote should have been.

Is there a way to find the reverse situation, to find paragraphs where there is an ending quote but was no starting quote at the beginning of the paragraph?

think that's a bit more difficult. if there's no space between the <p> tags and the text you could use something like this

Code:
<p[^>]*>(?<!")(\w.+?")</p>
which finds a <p> followed by an alphanumeric character that is not preceded by a quotation mark. not the best solution, but for simple and consistent texts it could work.

I couldn't get that to work at all and was about to give up and then realized you didn't use the curly smart quotes. Once I changed it to smart quotes, it would work somewhat, but it will also pick up any sentence or paragraph that doesn't immediately start with a quote. So it would pick up paragraphs like this:

Pamela shuddered. “We’ve been making ourselves polite to a murderess.”

And there's usually far too many of those types of sentences to want to read through over 500 of them to find the beginning quote buried further in.
