Book Cleaner files v1.7 2009-02-20
#1  JSWolf 06-23-2007, 10:24 PM
With the help of Harry T and vvv I've been able to tweak Book Cleaner (part of Book Designer) and now I have them set so they work well. 1.bcf and 2.bcf are before and after files 1 is before and 2 is after.

Just put them in your bookcleaner directory and then run Book Cleaner from BD and you'll be able to make use of them.

I had setup in Book Cleaner a fix so OE did not become emdashes. That problem was because when I did it, I was using the French language. Well, because I'm using German, that no longer needs to be fixed. Also, that fix causes graphics from LIT files to sometimes be missed. It picks up the cover, but not the rest of the graphics. So anyway, here is version 1.7. If you have version 1.0-1.6, please update with this version.

Added 1.8 to fix loading of graphics

What else does it do other than correct the "St." problem?

The old one fixed emdashes too. I was just about to search for this file again, JSWolf (I apparently wiped the ones I had ), so I'm especially glad that you chose today to update it.

Version 1.2 fixes a mistake I made with . And that caused things like Mr. and to become Mr. And. I forgot to check case specific. Now it works fine. Should be no more bugs.

One thing that was forgotten to be mentioned is that in order to preserve the proper dashes (reglar, emdash, etc.), when you go to make the Sony Reader (LRF) file, select the options tab and under misc make sure dashes is set to "as it is" and then dashes will not be converted.

Thanks for that reminder, JSWolf, I'd forgotten it.

I only remembered when trying to help HarryT fix the emdashes with the Queens Own FBI series and he said he's using the Book Cleaner 1.3 files. The default I think is to convert the dashes. And that does blow away the emdashes for sure.

Unclear about the install instructions. I installed Book Designer from a week ago. I'm assuming book cleaner files go in C:\Program Files\Book Designer 4.0\BookCleaner . I'm supposed to add only 2.bcf but not 1.bcf? Do I need to rename it or overwrite anything? The directory already has MiddleDashes_before and MiddleDashes_after.
