Wow! Thanks a lot Kim for this plugin.

Just a little problem. I write in French and this language uses very often non breaking spaces especially before exclamation marks, interrogations marks, ending quotations marks, and so on.

So I very often have something like this :

Code:
aaa^[blabla] !
After using the plugin, the non breaking space is replaced by an ordinary space and I get

Code:
aaa² !
instead of

Code:
aaa² !
I wrote "²" above but the plugin put "Note 2)"

An idea?

Most likely the plugin didn't delete the non-breaking spaces, but merely replaced them with Unicode characters.

You can test this by installing and running the ShadyCharacters plugin.

If that brings back the   entities, select Edit > Preferences > Preserve Entities and and add   to the list.

You're welcome.

I have no idea why it's doing so (should be grabbing and using just whatever is between the []'s. I'll look into it, but I have some deadlines for other stuff, so it may be some days, before I get round to it.

Kim

Just a note about this. Instead of a "normal" non-breaking space, consider using a thin one:  . It could be unsupported in some fonts, but I think every modern reader's default font has it now, and it looks much better.

Hello again …

I'm afraid I cannot reproduce your problem (Sigil 0.9.6, no "preserve entities" set. Windows 10).

The " !" in your sample is outside the []' and thus not touched by the plugin, which make me suspect the problem lies somewhere else.

I've made a small sample epub containing the offending code untitled.epub, and running the plugin doesn't alter anything in it - alle entities are preserved. Please try it and let me know the result (you could send me the resulting file.)

That is by design. "²" is very nice and printed-book-like, but almost unusable on a small touch-screen reader or computer, so I put in the ekstra word to make the note links a little bigger. You and anyone else are of course free to edit my code to suit your purposes and preferences

I would add a plea not to use just a superscript number as an endnote hyperlink. As Kim says, it's almost impossible to select on some reading devices - it's just too small.

+1 to that,
and maybe at bit OT: but why is nobody extending the link (< a > tag) so that the endnoted word itself is the hyperlink?

HTML
Code:
<p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, <a  href="#fn1" id="fnref1">consectetur <span class="footnoteRef">1)</span></a> adipiscing elit. </p>

Hi,

Please elaborate, I'm not sure I understand you. I have not set anything in preserve entities, and the plugiin does not alter my coding - (W10 x64, like you).

@Mark Nord - some. such as me, would assume clicking a blue underlined word would take me to it's definition: e.g. consectetur. If I had no need for the definition, I'd probably miss seeing the reference number.

I put the reference number in brackets either with a less than normal font-weight value (e.g. 200) or colour, so something like this. [23] That's big enough to touch or click, whilst being unobtrusive.

&nbsp; was added to the Preserve Entities feature by default. You wouldn't have had to "set" anything.

If, however, the user in question has removed &nbsp; from his list of entities to preserve, it would explain why it's being replaced by a normal space after the plugin run (or an epub save and subsequent reopen).

This is what I mean by "nothing set":

I just installed Sigil 0.9.6 on another computer, where Sigil has never been installed before, and yes, &nbsp; is there by default (I actually set # 160 ; in my working copy of Sigil many Sigil versions ago, since that is what I normally use. I removed it for the sake of the experiment here).

Then I installed my plugin on this virgin installation, and ran it on a file. None of the entities in the file was altered - not by running the plugin, not after a save as and reopening. I then removed the &nbsp; from the "preserve entities", closed and reopened Sigil, opened the file again and ran the plugin. Same result. I simply cannot reproduce the error. Hence I must conclude that something else is afoot.

Issue with the plugin

Hi;

I'd like to work -with this plugin- incrementally but it gives me an error message:

Spoiler:
Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Program Files\Sigil\plugin_launchers\python\launcher.py", line 135, in launch
    self.exitcode = target_script.run(container)
  File "C:\Users\Antonio\AppData\Local\sigil-ebook\sigil\plugins\ePub2-Notes\plugin.py", line 37, in run
    bk.addfile(uid, basename, cssdata, mime)
  File "C:\Program Files\Sigil\plugin_launchers\python\bookcontainer.py", line 166, in addfile
    self._w.addfile(uniqueid, basename, data, mime, properties, fallback, overlay)
  File "C:\Program Files\Sigil\plugin_launchers\python\wrapper.py", line 543, in addfile
    raise WrapperException('Manifest Id is not unique')
wrapper.WrapperException: Manifest Id is not unique
Error: Manifest Id is not unique


Of that way, it's impossible for me to add new footnotes once I have added footnotes previously with the plugin.

Can this issue be fixed?

Thank you very much in advance.

Rubén

When you run the plugin, it generates a footnote.css file. When you run it again (which, btw., I would advise against, since the new footnote's numbers would be duplicate, beginning all over from no. 1, and it's a sheer hell to sort that out), the footnote.css exists, and hence "Manifest Id is not unique".

That might be fixed by letting the plugin check for existing footnote.css - I'll look into it next weekend - but still, this is not footnotes the MSWord/Libreoffice way, and I doubt it's possible to get that functionality in Sigil. (But ideas are welcome, and anyone are welcome to tamper with my probably rather crude coding.)

Regards,

Kim
