Re: [JH] Options Dictionary Dialogue box not resizing

I had the same issue. Windows 10 Po laptop, XPS13,, 1920x1080 screen set to 150%, all OS updates applied. The most significant issue is that to fix it, you need the options box and that flows off the screen, including the "ok." The default for hitting return is ok, so that was easy enough,...

Re: [Beta][Question] Composition Mode.

Ok, it's probably because I go to and from a Mac, but that still strikes me as a bug, just a different one from what I reported. I may go back and forth from a Mac to a Windows box more than once a day and I'm not the only one.

Re: [Beta][Question] Composition Mode.

The default of black text on dark grey, or at least this is what I'm getting, is not a good choice in my opinion.

Also, unless I'm not understanding how this works, I can't change the text color. It stays black no matter what.

Ebook Indents Mac vs. PC

I use both the Mac and PC versions. I usually compile on the Mac, but I was sitting at the PC and my latest book was done so I just did it on the PC. I noticed right off that the indents that are set at .3" (I format in the editor and do not reformat with compile) looked very small. I changed t...

Re: Retaining font information after compiling to MOBI

Defining a font without actually including the embedded font produces problematic results on a lot of e-readers, most importantly the Kindle Paperwhite where if it finds a font definition and doesn't have a font to match it, it defaults to Helvetica and cannot be changed by the reader.

Re: Preserving Formatting Didn't Preserve It

Any chance of getting the exclusions for first line indent, centering, etc from compile/format/options into this version? It's probably the top feature that ebook writers want that's in Mac, but not Windows.

Re: Great tool but compiling bad epub files

You should be able to run the epub through Calibre to fix the error. Load epub into Calibre. Convert epub to mobi, then convert mobi to epub. That should pass validation.

Re: HELP: Formattng for export to Kindle

If you haven't done so, get the offline kindle previewer http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?ie=UTF8&docId=1000765261 It will let you see how your book looks on different devices. For example, the Fire devices put the title of your book on the top of every page. However, this doesn't show up o...

Re: Windows 7 version preference

I work as an IT critter supporting Windows workstations and networks and have for the last 12 years. There's no reason to go for Win 7 Pro over a home edition for a standalone computer. The only reason to install the Professional version is if you need to connect to a domain. My guess is they make m...

Re: epub - blank pages 1.5.3

FWIW the double pages appear on Adobe Digital Editions and the Nook, so if you add in Apple, it affects all the heavy hitters in the epub market.
