Might seem silly to do this all over again for basically the same release, but I've closed the beta one, so we need a thread for future issues/questions to be posted to.

Sigil 1.5.1 is not considered beta.

Thanks for all the hard work guys!!

Minor issue found with the report function - for some reason it does not show a "Matched Selector" (or "found In") in the Classes Used report for my <blockquote>.

When I ctrl-click on the class it takes me to the correct part of thee css sheet, and the style is displayed properly in the preview pane. Any ideas????

Yes because it shows only classes used in that report. Your actual selector is not just blockquote.write it has a descendent element and class.

To see if that complex descendent selector is used you need to use the CSS Selectors report.

If you add a blockquote.write only in the css (no descendent additions), then classes used report should detect it being used. Does it?

Yes it does. That's different from previous versions, so I was wondering.

Yes, the previous version ignored the descendant classes and said it was used even though it may not have been since having that element with that class is not enough to know if that selector was used or not.

The new version does not say "used" if it is not clear. It then punts to the CSS Selectors used report for a complete test of the full exact selector. This prevents "Delete Unused Selectors" from suggesting you can remove something that is in fact really used.

What has changed in version 1.5.1 after a recent fix due to MathML / MathJax that all icons are in only one bar and partially hidden. Previously, I had icons in two bars and saved clips in the third. What do I need to change to get back to the previous state.

Sorry for the English language, but it is not my language and I was assisted by translator.

Nothing has changed in that regard. I don't know why your icons rearranged themselves, but it wasn't the new version that did it. Nothing like that happened with the 4 Windows machines I tested the new version on. Something must have gone wrong with your Sigil.ini file. But to fix it, you just need to move them back where you want them.

Hi, folks! Overall I'm enjoying the enhancements for 1.5.1, but I'm having an issue with the "Delete Unused Stylesheet Selectors" not working as expected. I've got an ePub with multiple stylesheets (a global, and several file-specific), and have removed all instances of most of the styles contained therein, but the delete function does nothing, despite all unused selectors being checked.

I've confirmed the styles aren't in use by a search, through the reports screen, and by deleting all xhtml files except a blank one, and clicking the "Delete Marked Styles" button seems to fail silently (the dialog dismissed but nothing else).

Because I had updates from 1.4.3, I tried uninstallling and reinstalling fresh, and restarting, and it worked briefly, but the issue seems to be back again.

Anyone else seeing this issue? Aside from that, when it worked, it was awesome. I like that it could also remove header-based style definitions.

Hi

Sorry if this does not belong to this thread. Usually, Eli Schwartz publishes quite quickly a binary version of Sigil for Archlinux users. He informed this forum over a week ago that he would wait to provide a binary release of 1.5.1. (and Calibre btw) but, as of today, still failed to do so. A PageEdit version had been published earlier.

Has somebody more info about this?

Someone has flagged the current Arch sigil package as out of date (on the day Sigil 1.5.1 was released). Maybe he's out of town? Or maybe he's waiting to see that it's stable before updating it? I'm sure he'll get around to it.
