version 0.2.0 is a big improvement

Well, I finally tried using v0.2.0 beta 3 yesterday, and I must say I was impressed
with its speed! I cheated a bit, in that first I created the initial ebook coding with Microsoft Word and Notepad++, and then created an imageless epub file with Sigil v0.1.9 - my usual procedure for ebook creation. However, this time the book I was working on had 4 full size grayscale images, plus nearly 30 additional smaller images, and I quickly found that v0.1.9 was far too slow. Using v0.2.0 to add the images and edit formatting proved to be a really great advance over using only the older version for equivalent tasks.

The new version still has the habit of trashing many paragraphs of text if a mistake is made in the xhtml coding - for example, I entered <span class="indent - without the final "> and for that error v. 0.2.0 created many text additions starting with <span class where they should not be - required deleting almost an entire page of text and copying/pasting a replacement text section from the notepad++ backup. It would be nice if an error notice was generated rather than trashing.

Thanks, Valloric, for fine work on the new version. Before using it I was a bit uncertain about its value, but it really is an improvement over the older version for complex epubs. I intend to use it whenever I run into problems with 0.1.9.

Yes, that would be a great improvement.

I agree with you, Sigil 0.2 will be a wonderfull application.

But there is a bug that is still annoying to me : if you have many tabs open, then you mark a paragraph as Heading1, then you go to another tab, and go back to the initial tab : it has forgotten the Heading1 setting. Or sometimes, the Heading1 setting disappear when you save the file… That is really annoying.

Supposed to be fixed in next release
Work around
Set the Heading

Now click somewhere else on the page (not on the heading line(s) )

Now it will "stick"
