MIA Book Browser

Somehow I managed to close the book browser window. First I accidentally popped it out, and then I closed Sigil and when it started up the Book Browser window never opened up.

Is there any way to reset the UI to defaults or a keystroke to bring it back? When i right click on the tool bars the Book Browser is greyed out.

Using 0.2.0 b3 x64, on Windows 7 x64.

Much thanks in advance for any help!

Sounds like a bug, I'll look into it.

To reset the UI, do this:
  1. Go to Start->Run and type in "regedit" (without the quotes).
  2. Find the "HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Strahinja Markovic" folder.
  3. Delete it.
  4. Start Sigil.

That did it, thanks so much for the help. I will try and reproduce and open a bug for it if I can.

I'm having the same issue with the OSX version running 0.2.0β3 on an iMac with Snow Leopard. The book browser window disappeared last night. I uninstalled/reinstalled without success. Dropped back to version 0.1.9b, but the browser window is still missing...

I'd be surprised if you found one in 0.1.9.

Find this file and delete it:
Code:
$HOME/Library/Preferences/com.strahinja-markovic.Sigil.plist
Then reinstall Sigil 0.2.0beta3.

I've added an issue for this on the tracker. In the future, you will be able to open/close the BB on demand (there will be a menu option) so if it ever disappears, you'll be able to reopen it.

Many thanks for the quick response! I'll remove that file and reinstall this evening.
Cheers!
