If you fix the text so you end up with oe you can then do a search/replace on oe and turn it back into œ.

Thank you.
I'd like BD to do that for me, coz there may be some other special characters that don't come to mind right now and may turn to be possible "annoyances" while reading the ebook.
Anyway, it's not a big deal. Thnx

Neither IE or Firefox were able to open them.

Has the location changed?
Are the links broken?

Question Book Designer Error?

I can't seem to get it to create a book.

I dropped an HTML file into Book Designer,
Entered the information in the "make file" window,
And then clicked on "Make Book."

It processes a bit,
Then I get a pop-up that reads:

File is locked by 'default owner'
Do you want to:
* Open a Read Only Copy
* Created a Local copy & Merge your changes later
* Receive notification when the original copy is available."

No matter what I choose, it opens & freezes MS WORD.

Then after I close Word, there is a new Book Designer Pop-up that reads:
"Cannot Create PDF."

What am I doing wrong?

Have you installed BD properly? You need to install BD4 then 5 on top of it.

I downloaded & installed the files gwynevans mentioned in her post

Is there a more current update?
Looks like what I downloaded is version 4.
The update link in the program goes to a webpage that is down.
Where can I find 5?

Ok, I downloaded OpenOffice (since so many people seem to like it).
Then changed the printer option to OpenOffice and BD was able to create the PDF. Apparently, it didn't like PDFCreator.

Her?!

If you first install BD4 then the update, you get BD5 (Check the Help dialogs).

Ooopppss ... So Sorry !!!

I read your Name as Gwen (as in short for Gwenivere)

I installed BD4 then unzipped the update over the BD4 folder.

The program still calls itself BD4.

Yes, it does that on all the file and folder titles. Open BD and click on 'Help! then on 'Book Designer Main Help'. If you have BD5 it will be headed 'Book Designer 5'.

Have you managed to get hold of 'Book Designer 5'? Every time I see a link to download it, the link is dead.

The links in the "Bookdesigner Files and How to Install" sticky thread in the "Workshop" forum work for everyone else. I'm slightly baffled by why they aren't working for you!
