- Fix for corner case of a non-linear anchor TOC link taking precedence over file TOC link.

I'm giving up on changing TOC editing in EpubSplit:
Spoiler:
FYI, I've spent some more time thinking deep thoughts about TOC and EpubSplit.

TOC is actually rather complex. You can have:
  • Multi-level TOC
  • Non-linear TOC
  • Duplicate TOC Links
Or any combination of the above. The content of an epub, OTOH, is linear. And there's no requirement that every file of the epub even appear in the TOC.

EpubSplit, technically, displays book contents annotated by TOC entries. Which is why it ignores multi-level TOC and non-linear TOC(mostly). It does make a limited attempt to handle duplicate TOC links. EpubSplit always writes a new, flat, linear TOC based on the user's choices.

EpubSplit is meant to be a relatively simple tool to do a relatively simple job and I think it's doing that well enough. Any attempt to make it do more with TOC would be... difficult.



So, short answer: if you want to preserve a multi-level or non-linear TOC, you should use a more sophisticated like Calibre's Edit Book.

Hi Jimm or anyone else who can clarify.

I have a large omnibus, 20 plus books. Each book spans multiple rows in the Epub Split window. I see that I can select the appropriate group of html files for each book and then use the 'new book' button. Any way to do this in multiple selections in one go?

However I'm not sure how to utilize the 'new book per section' option. Where is that appropriate unless each html contained entire books?

Thanks for the work towards the plugin.

Aside from using ctrl and shift keys to selection sections quicker, no, not at this time.

There is the new 'always include' feature. Read the last couple pages if you missed it.

Originally, 'new book per section' did exactly what it says, one new book per section for exactly that situation: one (x)html file per new book. It also refused to do anything unless all selected sections had TOC entries.

Now it looks at TOC entries and makes one book per TOC entry from the selected sections. IE, sections (files) without a TOC entry will be included until the next TOC starts a new book.

Thanks looks like I'll have to do them one by one. I couldn't get the 'new book per section' to work as you described on my first try but I'll keep tinkering with it. Not a big deal as its probably not applicable to my situation.

Is the issue that each book has TOC entries for its chapters or parts? If so, you could delete those sub-book-level TOC entries, select all of the sections, and use "new book per section"; you'd lose the TOC entries in the resulting new books, but you could then generate those using the ebook editor if you wanted.

Hi
I use very often epubsplit/merge and what I would find very useful it's a function to really extract some Html files from the original epub...

Actually, if I want to split an epub, I select some files, create a new book... But the first epub is "untouched" and I have to get out of epubsplit, edit the book and delete the files I had previously extracted...
It would be so practical if epubsplit had an extra button "New book and old book expurged" so we could have a choice every time...

Don't know if it's possible, just my 2p ;-)

Thanks for a great plug-in anyway...

The plan was to leave the original intact (so you could try again if things went South ) and you would Split ALL the parts to their new books.

@The_Bird -

theducks is basically correct.

EpubSplit is a non-destructive tool that doesn't change the original.

But you can effectively do the same thing if you create 2 split books.

Using your example, select the few sections for the first split, new book; then ctrl-a to select all sections, ctrl-click to unselect those few sections, new book. Or some other combination of ctrl/shift-clicking.

Point is, if you're 'removing' one contiguous chunk, it really shouldn't be onerously difficult with the existing tool. I figure 5 click/actions max.

Yes of course it is possible and I did it this way sometimes...
But as a fan of the lazy man who has invented the wheel because he was tired to pull his charge, I was just wondering about a magic button... (but every magic button have a price to pay, as King/Chizmar could tell us)...

A non destructive tool cannot be a bad thing, so let's forget my suggestion ;-)
