Allow me a stupid question: Is there any way to display the separators by a code in the text search on Kobo reader? I think no, but like to ask.
I do not know the answer, but I suggest asking in the Kobo Reader forum as more Kobo users will see your question and maybe someone can answer your question.

[GUI Plugin] Hyphenate This! Exclusions

(I hope I did this in the right (sub) forum)

I've been using the GUI Plugin Hyphenate This! to add soft hyphens to an AZW3, and it usually works well

Ran into a epub that I converted to an AZW3 to make more readable (to my preferences) on my Paperwhite

The epub does not use <hx> tags for chapter titles (no Hx's in the CSS at all), but uses <p class="ct") and <p class="cn") for the chapter titles and chapter numbers.

The PI only seems to have the capability to exclude on a tag basis, not on a tag+class basis.

Any suggestions?

Maybe the PI could consider an enhancement?

Thanks

Hi, thank you a lot for this plugin! But I have a problem, even if I followed all the steps of the guide, and I've also installed the italian dictionary linked here, the plugin doesen't work.

Edit. Now work perfectly! Thank you again and sorry for the post

Some questions re Hyphenate

Sorry about the duplication - this is the correct version. No idea what happened!
As a long-time user of Calibre, I am very excited to have found the Hyphenate This! plug-in as it has long been a frustration of mine that Kindles do not seemingly hyphenate side-loaded books. This is particularly annoying when one uses a fairly large character size (senior eyes!) and a line contains a long word (perhaps even containing a hard hyphen) which causes the justification rule to break the line about half-way across the page.

As I have a substantial library of such books (all, regrettably, converted from epub to mobi already and not azw3) I wonder if anyone could provide me with some advice on how to address the following issues I have encountered while experimenting with Hyphenate This!:
  1. Despite books being in English, I sometimes find that the plugin reports that the book is in some other language and refuses to hyphenate. (Book's "NK3" language is Arabic. There is no dictionary installed for this language. Book won't be hyphenated.) Also, sometimes it reports errors such as "TypeError: 'NoneType' object is not iterable. p, li { white-space: pre-wra File "calibre_plugins.hyphenatethis.hyphenatethisaction ", line 118, in hyphenate
    File "calibre_plugins.hyphenatethis.hyphenatethisaction ", line 71, in _select_books
    TypeError: 'NoneType' object is not iterable

    Any thoughts as to why this might be, and what to do to address this?
  2. Many of my existing books seem to have hard-coded hyphenation (as someone suggested, this may be an artifact of the PDF to epub conversion). Is there a ready way to remove these hard hyphens so the soft hyphenation can do its magic?
  3. I would like to be able to select (say) 100 books or more at a time and have the following series of processes happen in a consecutive fashion (preferably without human intervention):
  • Remove hard hyphenation
  • Run Hyphenate
  • Remove the mobi version
  • Run the Calibre epub to azw3 conversion
It would seem to me that this would require a form of scripting that I am not aware of Calibre possessing, but again, others may know far more than I!

Many thanks in advance.

1. Have you checked the metadata in calibre (namely: Language)? If yes, you might also have a look into the book code (.css files): sometimes language can be hardcoded in there. For the other error I don't know, I think only the dev might help you with that

2. Not that I know, you shall remove it by hand. But I am not sure what you mean by "hard-coded" hypenation... you see the li-ne-s wro-te as this e-ven the-y do not break? If not, I wouldn't say it is hard-hypenated...

3. I don't think Calibre is scriptable, but you may run each step for the whole bunch of books, you just need to select all the books in advance and run the action you need

You could reconvert from ePub to KF8 and delete the Mobi.

to convert before hyphenation?

If I want hyphenation in a book that I converted from epub to azw3, should I first hyphenate the epub, or should I do the conversion first?

Convert from ePub to KF8 and then apply the hyphens. That's the best way to do it.

Moving here from another thread - just got my PW3, and am wondering how to enable hyphens in my Polish books? I suppose hyphenation will not work for MOBI, so I need to convert the files to AZW3, KF8 or KFX? What's the difference between them and is any of them best?

On a side note, ebooks purchased from Amazon Store are hyphenated. Why is that, are they in one of those three formats?

EDIT: OK, converted ebooks to AZW3, hyphenation works.

Hyphenate This!

If you have a Kindle (with AZW3/KF8 support) this plugin will explode the book, add soft-hyphens and rebuild it back.

How can I use Hyphenate This without it affecting the headings? I want everything except those to be hyphenated. I also notice that applying Hyphenate This! reduces all text to the same size. How do I keep all sizes? Thanks

My guess is that you should read the User Guide section in post #1 carefully and investigate the 'tags to ignore' option.

Tags to ignore has little value in real life scenario, because huge percentage of retail ebooks uses p tag + some CSS class for headings... and for those books you're left with having to manually fix things after hyphenate plugin finishes. It never bothered me that much so I've never tried testing if the problem can be fixed by adding "hyphens: none" (plus all the vendor prefixed variants) to appropriate CSS classes. I usually just make sure to remove soft-hyphens from ToC and Copyrights pages.

edit: Ok, I've done a quick test. Adding "-webkit-hyphens: none" works ("hyphens: none" doesn't) on my Kindle (PW3 on firmware 5.6.5, azw3 book).

no dashes in pop up footnotes on Kindle pw (7th Generation)

On Kindle pw (7th Generation) firmware 5.8.10

When I hyphenate a AZW3 book with footnotes the normal text is OK, but no way to have pop up footnotes with dashes. In calibre viewer I see correctly but not on Kindle, the hyphenation seems to work but no dashes. The same footnotes, at the end of the chapter (or at the end of the book) are shown correctly.

I think it's a Kindle bug (or a lacking feature) because in pop up notes I can't see neither embedded font; and in closing I can't see justified text also if I say it in css.

I forgot: italian dictionary, if it is important.

edit: now 5.8.11, no changes.

hyphenated ebooks purchased from Amazon Store are in kfx format.

azw3 and kf8 is the same format, generally books are with the azw3 extension, I have never seen a kf8 extension in a book but is the same format. And if you want to hyphenate them you can use this plug in.

better: kf8 is the format, azw3 the extension, kf8 can be also into new format mobi file.

I read books in Bulgarian, English and sometimes Russian on Kindle Oasis and an old Kindle 5. English books I try to convert to KFX using the KFX plugin and Kindle Previewer. If not possible, to AZW3. KFX English books are hyphenated, AZW3 - not. Bulgarian and Russian are not supported by Previewer, so I convert books in those languages to AZW3. Bulgarian books are not hyphenated. But some months ago after one of the firmware updates, Oasis started to hyphenate AZW3 books in Russian. I was surprised and checked - the same files are not hyphenated on the old Kindle5 and on Kindle apps for Android and Windows. I even looked inside the files and found no soft hyphens.
So my guess is that for some of the more popular languages that are not supported by KFX format, Amazon enabled hyphenation for AZW3 format in Kindle firmware. But not for languages that KFX format supports like English or for less popular languages like Bulgarian.
