Also make sure the box is checked to use the bundled internal Python.

Then go to this thread and or the link provided and download a fresh copy of ePub3-itizer v0.3.7.

Use Finder to manually move the plugin Zip folder to your Desktop (This is required for Sierra). Then fire up Sigil and use Manage Plugins to install the eUb3-itizer plugin.

Please triplecheck you have checked the box to use the bundled internal python.

Load your epub into Sigil and run Flightcrew or eoubcheck to verify your epub is a valid epub2.

Then run epub3-tizer on it. If no save as dialog appears, then check the Finder panel to see if a rocket blasting off icon is in the panel, and select that icon if needed to force the save-as dialog to come to the front.

If you get a launcher error, then your copy of Sigil is broken. Download a fresh copy (verifying the checksums as directed) and repeat all of the above.

Please let me know what problems you run into.

well totally uninstalled sigil downloaded a new copy got the plugin from page 1 and in yosemite still the same issue but in parallels running sierra not a problem.

Are you saying it works in Sierra but not Yosemite?

If so what exact error messages are you getting?

Did you see the python icon in panel (rocket ship blasting off)?

If not, please download the testplugin (see its thread here) and install and run it on both Yosemite and on Sierra via Parallels and let us know what it says about each plugin environment.

One other thing to try is to use ePub3-itizer v0.3.6 and when first invoked, look for the rocketship icon in the Finder's panel.

See this post to see what I am talking about here:

https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...&postcount=202

Click on that icon. It will force the Python file save as dialog to the front so you can see and interact with it.

Does that help?

If with 0.3.6 there is no busy ball, then something in version 0.3.7 is causing a crash but only under Yosemite. That is very strange. It appears to be something Tk related (Python's tcl/tk gui toolkit) because that testplugin passes for everything and the only thing not covered by it is Tk.

The fact that with 0.3.6 you can see the file save as dialog and drag it around but NOT use it seems to indicate a broken Python Tk implementation as well. I previously tested 0.3.6 under Yosemite and el Capitan and it worked (although I had to manually hit the Python rocket icon in the Finder panel to get the dialog to appear).

So there is nothing special about Yosemite.

I would download and install ActiveState's active Tcl/Tk for MacOSX and this time look for an older version 8.5 instead of 8.6 to see if that helps.

This is a tad random but i just got it to work with 0.37
and with a 500MB epub no less (image files are a tad big) and I have no idea why it worked this time and not before. I was expecting it to fail.

Something strange must have been up with the ActiveState ActiveTCL package you installed. That is what makes Python's Tk gui widgets actually work.

No ideas on why but I am glad it is working for you.
