[Request] Optional 'No File Split'
#1  Michael_ZZ 02-03-2011, 06:17 AM
(I hope it's alright to post requests here. If not, please direct me to a place where I can send requests to.)

I like to split up my LO ePub export manually in Sigil to avoid splits where I don't them.
Therefore I'd like to have a Writer2ePub option where I could export my text into one single xhtml file.

Hi,

you can avoid the file splitting by remove all the check boxes "Split file before headingÂ…" and to set the "Split the file every" to the maximum in the preferences panel.

In this way you can have a single file if the total length of your original source is less that 300,000 charachters.

A split on 300 kb is mandatory to avoid hangs to most readers, but this limit is large enougth for most books.

Hi Luke.

thanks for the advice. That was the first thing I did, set the "Split file every" to 200000k which then resets to 300 ... which is in many cases not enough.

Even then I end up with 2 or more section files, having the split somewhere in the middle of a paragraph in Sigil. (For several reasons I cannot use the "Split before hx" options...)

I know of the 300k limitation. But as I've said, I'd like to do the file split later manually in Sigil.

Well, it seems I'll have to live with that.
