PageEdit-0.8.0 Released

PageEdit-0.8.0

For the impatient, the binary files (and source) can be found as assets at the bottom of the PageEdit Github Release page.

PageEdit-0.8.0 is is primarily a new features release.

The major new features include the addition of Find and Spellchecking. In addition, the user now can set Preferences to determine how they would like to handle how PageEdit handles sequences of whitespace by either injecting non-breaking spaces (the default) or setting styles to use white-space:pre-wap.

In addition by setting the environment variable "PAGEEDIT_ENABLE_WORD_PASTE_CLEANUP" to 1 will enable extra cleanup code during Save that will remove much of the cruft leftover when pasting formatted text from Microsoft Word into PageEdit. This feature is experimental and can remove both xhtml comments and remove any style tags used in the body (not head!).

Here is a more complete list of the changes:

PageEdit only comes with spellcheck dictionaries for English, French, German and Spanish.

To install additional PageEdit spellcheck dictionaries:

1. Close all PageEdit instances and visit the Chromium hunspell_dictionaries website.

2. Download the .bdic dictionary file for the language that you want to install. For example, it-IT-3-0.bdic for Italian.

3. Copy it to the PageEdit qtwebengine_dictionaries folder.

Well done. This spellcheck function in PageEdit is really nice.

Now, one can limit spellcheck to single file level if required (this option is missing in Sigil as browsing though the codeview window for spell errors is not the same).

It would be even more beatiful if there was a functionality to extend these installed dictionaries with user defined words. Such thing may be not that important for english speaking users but when you often deal with translated ebooks than it becomes very handy. Just a small wish for future...

Where can I read what is PageEdit and what is it for?

Have you tried looking at the main readme for the PageEdit github repo linked to in all of the PageEdit release notices? https://github.com/Sigil-Ebook/PageEdit

No, I looked at the link given in the first post (https://github.com/Sigil-Ebook/PageEdit/releases/tag/0.8.0).

Any chance that Page Edit will automatically refresh when changes are made in the coding? I don't see a function anywhere in page edit to allow me to refresh.

Also - it would be helpful if there weren't a delay when I try to open Page Edit and if opening each new xhtml file didn't require opening another new window. I've got way too many windows open already on multiple screens so adding more windows to my workflow is really not helpful.

I've been using Sigil for years now - I'm a book designer who does ebook conversion CORRECTLY. I actually do know HTML and use it to clean up what InDesign does. I specialize in making beautiful and functional ebooks to match the print books that I produce for clients.

So I'm not afraid of the coding. I really love it, but I am a visual person and really need to be able to verify quickly that my coding adjustments have rendered the desired results.

For now I'm reverting back to 9.14 since I can't afford to slow down my workflow. Hoping that Page Edit will continue to get better and that I'll be able to make the shift eventually though. I'll keep checking back.

Have you tried coding in xhtml and using Sigil's built in Preview window to visually see what you have changed in real time?

I agree. If you're primarily using Code View to make your edits. Just use Preview to see the live changes. No need to use Book View or PageEdit for that sort of thing. Just park Preview on a second monitor and visualize to your heart's content. Book View and Preview are both primarily for people who want/need to edit in a wysiwyg environment.

I never used BookView, because I don't use button bars I never 'got' why it even existed for the first few years I used Sigil.

The best thing about Page Edit is that it now shows any misspelt words via red underline (I wish Preview had that) - it also gives me a resizable window I can play around with, without disturbing my editing layout.
