e-Book Tools - a Word add-in

As of today it is possible to download my Word add-in. This add-in has all kinds of procedures to help with creating e-Books.

The following procedures are available:
  • Preperation/Prework
  • Search & Replace
  • Check dialogues
  • Check accented Words
  • Generate clean HTML
  • Create ePUB

The preperation/prework procedure is the first procedure to roughly cleanup the output from ABBYY (or another OCR program) to prepare for the other work. The second is a Search and Replace procedure. That procedure follows a Word document with tables (example available on the site) that contains a large number of S&R rules. Your own rules can be added to that. The dutch version has much more standard available than the English, but if you send me additions (not via this forum please to keep the thread clean) I will add them to the base document. Some S&R are language independant.
The third procedure is to check all dialogues in the system if they are correct. With correct I mean having an opening and an ending quote. I check for 3 kind of quotes: single, double and guillemets (« »).
The fourth procedure is useful for languages that are not using accented words frequently in my opinion. It checks all accents to check they are correct. Words can be added to a temporary list to skip them for the remainder of the document.
The fifth procedure is basically my HTML export macro (with some changes). The sixth procedure is taking the HTML export and creates a base ePUB ready to be loaded into Sigil. You can make additions like adding a title, author, description and cover.

There is more of course (and various settings), but that is described in the manual.

The add-in, manual and supporting document can be downloaded here.

Enjoy.

Then you probably downloaded the patch and not the program itself. The patch is for people that have the older version.

Toxaris,
Thank you for this add-in. I have successfully installed it on my Win 7 64-bit computer. I use Word 2002 (XP).
I must ask two questions:
1. How will I know that the add-in is working?
2. Will it work on documents that have already been created?
Thank you.
Frank

It will not work on Word 2002. You need to have the ribbon, so Word 2007 and later. Sorry.

The PDF works fine in Firefox. I gave up Chrome when I found out how not as good as Firefox it really is.

I gave up Firefox when I had to reboot daily due to the seriously excessive memory leaks and endless errors, not to mention all the glitches with whatever it last was, Flash Player or what-have-you. I don't shut down my computer every day. If you do, Firefox is fine; but if you don't, it's a serious memory leech.

If the internal PDF viewer of Chrome is used, I can replicate this. I changed the viewer to Adobe and then it does work.
It can be changed by going to the following page: chrome://plugins

Otherwise is can be downloaded of course...

Oh, I have it, no problem. I wasn't reporting the issue for me; just thought you'd like to know that Chrome seemed to have an issue with it. ;-)
