I suggest you try this copy of 1984 to convert using html2lrf and see how you get on.

I don't know what's in the .pdb file, so cannot comment on it. But in a plain text file, what do you look at (with your eyes when you browse the file) that tells you it's a new chapter? Are there a unique number of blank lines (i.e. consecutive "new line" characters) before the new chapter? Is it the word "Chapter"? I would think that you'd be able to set up a regular expression in Calibre that would catch one of those to indicate the beginning of a new chapter.

But, plain text files just do not lend themselves to an easy way to automatically detect a new chapter -- it's all text. A marked-up file in HTML is simply easier to deal with.

The only solution is to use the text markup to mark the chapters.

Hi Yuki,

I had the same problem. If you're converting from text, the answer is actually really simple. Just "underline" the chapter headings by putting a row of dashes underneath and the conversion program will pick it up. like this:

Chapter1
----------

<content>

Chapter 2
-----------

more information and a demo file here:
