Re: Question regarding importing

No, it doesn't, but thanks for the suggestion!

Madame Mouton, is this on the bug list?

Re: Question regarding importing

I tried the same method, and while it *does* work for fonts/special characters and footnotes, unfortunately it doesn't for comments/annotations and the marking of text marked in colour (comments are lost, as is the marking).

Re: currently reading

I've now moved to Anatomy of a Disappearance by Hisham Matar - it's his second novel, and I can heartily recommend the first one, the Booker shortlisted In the Country of Men.

Re: currently reading

I used to love Franny and Zooey (I read it numerous times when I was in my twenties) but sadly couldn't get into it as much when I went to re-read it a year or so ago. Hopefully it was a one-off and the next time I'll love it again... I guess it would be strange if one's experience of a book would ...

I just started re-reading Franny and Zooey, and I love it, as always.

Re: Question regarding importing

And thank you for your reply! Saving and importing UTF-8 plain text does work to transfer the special characters (even preserving at least the text of comments and footnotes, even noting their location, but not really linking them, which is therefore just not practical enough in my case because ther...

Re: beta 2.2 and 2.3 starting very slow on XP

The loading time on my machine hasn't substantially changed between 2.1, 2.2 and 2.3:
30-40 seconds on a ca. 7 years old quite crappy laptop
Win XP SP3
Celeron 1.5 GHz
256 MB RAM (!)

Re: Restoring auto-saved data

Which version are you using? It sounds like a bug from version 0.22 which has been addressed in the new 0.23: some people in this thread have given some advice how lost data could potentially be recovered: viewtopic.php?f=32&t=12755
Good luck!

Question regarding importing

Apologies if this issue has already been addressed somewhere else - I could not find it via the search function. I am working with the 0.23 beta and Windows XP. I would like to import a file which I converted to .rtf from Word 2007; the file contains footnotes, comments, highlighted sections and, mo...

Re: Major problem with saving

Sorry, Elminster, I've tried your steps, but didn't get it to replicate. :( Are you able to always trigger it? Am I doing the steps correctly? 1. Make changes in various places in my project. 2. Edit a folder text - have I interpreted right that this was what was triggering it? 3. Make changes in o...

Re: Major problem with saving

Oh, definitely. I didn't mean to speak for Lit & Latte, or to say that this issue isn't worth looking at until we could prove we could replicate it. Sorry if I gave that impression! No problem - I apologise if it appeared that I wanted to start flaming. I'm saying, however, the most ideal way w...

Re: Major problem with saving

As I described in my initial post here. I obviously don't know whether it "works" for anyone, or whether it's the same error, but, as I had written above, the error is consistent, and I had it on both of my machines. But who knows, maybe it's just that particular project (I am accessing th...
