Seems to have settled down over the last few weeks - tree hug

Yes, they make undocumented changes all the time. Especially the Search and Replace functions are changed a lot, causing all kinds of issue. It makes beta testing also really hard... It seems to slow down indeed.

Yeah, I agree. I was thinking of the "check" things; sorry I wasn't clear about that.

Yeah, no--that's why I use this first. I prefer to put my stuff into Sigil already cleaned, using Sigil as the last step, which saves me all the brain-damage of building an OPF, NCX/Landmarks, breaking it into chapters/HTML files, etc. And packaging, of course.

If I had Word I would but I haven't installed it in decades. I haven't had any need for it and it's (or was) so invasive installing all sorts of crap. (Remember Clippy, Cortana's ancestor?)

Oh, well. I've never had any problems with Word installing "all sorts of crap," myself ...Cortana and Clippy have nothing to do with Word, really; they have to do with MS Windows.

But, that's your call--to each their own. You can use clips in Sigil or any other decent HTML editor to do the same thing--I used to do mine in NoteTAB Pro, (which has a fantastic clip functionality and library) before Toxaris came up with his splended Word plugin.
