Re: Internal Links Disappear on Compile to Kindle

So, back to the issue of internal links. I finally resolved the issue. As it turns out, I had separate front matter folders for my ebook and paperback (I was still determining which docs needed to be different between the versions). And, the links for my ebook were pointing to the pages in my paperb...

Internal Links Disappear on Compile to Kindle

I'm proofing the final version of my book now on Kindle and I've just discovered that the internal links have disappeared. Links from one chapter to another are no longer in place. Is this a known bug? I tried checking the compile option "Convert document links to HTML links and it corrupts my ...

Re: Delete Format Placement is a Disaster Waiting to Happen

True, but when you're brain weary mistakes are easy to make even with confirmation questions. It's kind of like placing a self-destruct button next to a start button. It's just best not to do so in the first place.

Delete Format Placement is a Disaster Waiting to Happen

While not a bug, I strongly suggest relocating the Delete Format command to the bottom of the list and away from Edit Format in the compile settings.Having them right next to each other is a disaster waiting to happen. I've been putting in many hours the past few days finalizing my book and adjustin...

Re: Add “first-letter” Span Style for Drop Caps Not Working

I have decided against using drop caps as the formatting changes when the user changes the display font and it's impossible to make them look good with all fonts.

Re: ToC and Initial Page Compile Issues

Thanks for the suggestion. I gave it a a try, but the ToC is still off center to the right. I was able to figure out how to style the title "Contents" to match the rest of the headers in my book through css with the following modified section of code. .page-title { margin: 0rem 0% 1rem 0re...

Re: Uppercase Setting in Compile Not Working for Title Suffix

Not a problem for suggesting that. Actually, even if I use the the Subtitle style that works for my chapters, I get the same results. It's always smaller on the front matter pages than on the chapter pages. I'm using a different style simply to experiment without messing up my chapters which are as ...

Re: Uppercase Setting in Compile Not Working for Title Suffix

Thanks! I have the issue fixed with the Title Suffix now. I also have another similar issue. I've been unable to get the front matter section titles to appear at the proper size to match the chapter section titles. I even set the font extra large to make sure I was selecting the right sections and s...

Re: Uppercase Setting in Compile Not Working for Title Suffix

The title for each chapter appears as it should, it's just not in uppercase. By the way, the coding was already in place. I didn't add or change anything. I'm just trying to make the titles uppercase.
