IMP GUI Converter/Editor
#1  mscott161 12-22-2008, 03:27 PM
Hello,

Since the start of the GUI version of my ConvertIMP Program, I have continually added features as people have sent wish list items. I try to add new features to the program if they are a good fit, I am also try to keep the GUI from being too difficult to use.

This all started when conversing with Nick who has posted many elements to the IMP thread and has helped make the program what it is today. I will be working with him and others to make a good solid utility for users to be able to do something with the IMP format.

I will continue to edit this post with the new releases as I make them. Please be patient with it because it is Beta and I do not want users to mess up their IMP files. If there is a bug or problem, please post or PM me and I will remove the last release and fix the bugs before doing another one.

Thank you.
--Michael


- Version 1.3.5
I have now added the ability to mass convert the IMP Text Content to LRF. Found under Tools Menu. Or Select a book from the library and go to the Text Content Tab there is a Save LRF button. I would like to thank Chris Mumford for the BBeBLib in C# that allowed me to complete this milestone in the application.

- Version 1.3.6
I have add the TRow and TCel parsing which may have different effects to the HTML saving until string runs have been parsed.

Unless someone post that they want to see the source code this will be the last one and I will continue to update the below link but will only contain the executable.

- Just the Executable is at http://www.ebizsoft.com/download/convertimpgui.zip

Nice!

At this rate, you'll be posting version 2.0 soon!

OK time to write that wish list...

Just but a few items...
OK, those were the easy/cosmetic things.

For the really advanced stuff, allow batch processing, handle REB1200 .imp ebooks, convert the text to html with character codes substitutions and weird characters substitution, allow linking to images and hyperlinks, use the embedded styles, < hr />, tables, forms, etc (you know the 'piece of cake' stuff ).

I'll help with the advanced stuff as I get the .IMP format better documented.

Now when this is all done, we can then feed the resulting .html with images/links/styles to Cailbre's html2lrf and presto, .lrf support! or .epub via html2epub!

Nick and All,
I have made some GUI changes and provided image saving and display. Most all of the items from Nick's wish list above has been addressed.

I have placed the new update in the first post in this thread.

Happy Holidays,

That's great, Michael! What turn-around time.

In the same time it took you to produce this new version, if you were a major corporation, I think you would be still at the stage of identifying your target users.

OK, some constructive/minor comments:
That's it for now....

Have yourself Happy Holidays as well. And thanks for your present (ConvertIMP)!

How is this one only 17K when the others were over 110K in size?

Dale:

It's just the executable file and doesn't have the source and project overhead/clutter. Maybe Michael can include the source code as well.

Still for 17k zipped it's amazing!!!!

I replaced the zip file with one with the source code as well in it.
Sorry about that.
