Very frustrating.

Vista 64
Word 2007
Yes, I have the proper paths to Calibre and html2lrf

Thanks in advance for your help.

When that dialog box shows up hit the <Debug> button and take a screen shot of the VBA screen. (Usually shows a yellow line highlighting some text)

A couple questions.

1) Have you been able to use the other macros. Like word wrap, "File import..."
2) Does calibre work on your system. Do the following steps
- Open a word doc and save it as an html. "File | Save As..."
- Import the HTML file to calibre.
- Convert the document from the GUI or from the command line.

1) Yes, all other macros seem to work fine.
2) Calibre works GREAT on my computer. I was also able to save a Word doc as html and convert to lrf in Calibre.

I have tried to get debug to work, but nothing seems to happen. I will continue to try to get a debug log for you.

I've been experimenting a bit more with BC.

One oddity is that the macro for changing uppercase to italics seems to work brilliantly for text files, but won't work (for me) at all for doc or html.
The underscores to italics works on all types of file, as far as I can see.

It's worth noting that the uppercase to italics always renders the italics in lowercase, so one has to check the text in case of italicization at the beginning of a sentence.

Hi Patricia,
This is by design, what is happening is that the marco looks for styles that are of type "1 Text" and are uppercase. The reason for this condition is most titles are upper case and running the script would italicize them.

The reason this works with text documents and not words/html files is most likely you ran the "Word Wrap Fix" macro for the text file, which turns all the text to the "1 Text" style. And did not run it with the macro with a doc/html so the text maintains it's original style. It is worth noting that running "Word Wrap Fix" on a doc/html file will not give you a desirable result as it will turn paragraphs to one huge block.


I typically convert the text in a doc/html to "1 Text" so all the macro's work properly. There are two ways. One is to run the "Tag Italics" this puts a "_"(underscore) before and after an italicized word. The reason will become apparent soon. Then I select the whole document and Click "Clear Formatting" on the "Styles and Formatting" pane. At this point all formatting are lost. (Italics, bolds, etc...). Followed by selecting the "1 Text" style, this then turns all the text to "1 Text". Then I run the "Italicize the Text" macro to retrieve italicizes text. This works when the document is a simple document like a novel. Note Patricia. If you are going to run the "Italicize UPPERCASE" here I would suggest you run "Auto Chapter" first so that you don't italicize the Chapter titles.

The latter approach is a bit more tedious but preserves the format where needed.

You can click on the body of the text. On the "Styles and Formatting" the style associated to the text is highlighted. Right click on the style and select the "Select All" menu option. This selects all the text of that style. Then I click on "Clear Formatting" and select "1 Text".
Do this for each style you wish to convert to "1 Text".

Yes this is a bug. I'll have it fixed for the next release.

Have the template load every time ?

Hi,

I was wondering if there was a way to set up MSWord so that it would just load this template automatically every time I started word?

Any help / suggestions please.

The best and easiest way to do this is to create a shortcut to your quicklaunch toolbar or on your desktop. Then click/double click on the shortcut. This will open word with new file that uses the bookcreator.dot template.

Another was is to make the template global by going to "Tools|Template and Add-In.."
Then depress the "Add..." button and add the template.

But I don't recommend that method as it does not properly setup GUI display, though all the macros work.

Edited to add: Sorry, I misread the thread, which is about Book Creator, not Book Designer. I'll have to get my eyes tested again.

Basically, Book Cleaner is a Word macro. I'm using it with Office 2003. I suspect that it should work with older versions of Word without too much trouble.

Have you considered writing a wiki entry for Book Creator, =X=?

That is a good idea --bit of a V8 moment ( )

I've never written a WIKI and don't know where to start? I thought WIKI on mobiread where controlled by the moderators?

How do I go about starting one?

No... Wiki is by definition a community editable feature. You do need to get a wiki login though to contribute. Just go to the Wiki link at the top of this page... Create login to the Wiki (top right link on Wiki). Once you've done that... create a page.

The easiest way to create a page is to find an existing page that should like to your new page... add the topic name/link like this:

[[Book Creator]]

Then save your edit. The link about should be active... click on it to create the page... then edit the page.
