version 4.129 problem

Upgraded to v4.129 and imported & converted html file to epub.

Nothing appeared different from previous version until I opened the file in the viewer. The <br> went from single spacing to double. I naturally thought it was me as I had added a line between paragraphs as I find this easier to read. Went back to the html file to check, appeared OK. Did the import and conversion again - same thing, <br><br>looked like 4 line spacings between paragraphs.

Opened up v4.127 and converted same html file - perfect.

Is anyone else experiencing this problem with v4.129? I am using an IMAC running OSX 10.5.6.

Love this program, just figured out how to do TOC....

Yes, I noticed the same thing with one of my HTML to epub conversions. The multiple-spaced text was in the <body> portion of the html. I solved the spacing problem by placing the text within paragraph tags <p></p> and the result was single spacing in the epub.

Unhappy Spacing problem still with v4.130

downloaded v4.130 - problem still appears to be there.

Yekim54 - followed your advice and worked fine. Found this in the ePub Best Practices documentation:

Quote:
Use <br /> element only when it’s appropriate (poems, addresses, etc.)
The <br /> element is for introducing line breaks where those breaks are part of the content. The breaks within verses of a poem are part of the content and so that use is helpful. Other use of the <br />element should be avoided. Paragraphs will already have breaks between them because of the paragraph elements and you’ll be able to control the space around them with CSS styling.
I shall be putting this into practice from now on...
