e-Book Tools - a Word add-in
#1  Toxaris 05-17-2013, 02:43 AM
Welcome to my Word add-in. This add-in has all kinds of procedures to help with creating e-Books.

Amongst others, the following procedures are available:
The preperation/prework procedure is the first procedure to roughly cleanup the output from ABBYY (or another OCR program) to prepare for the other work. The second is a Search and Replace procedure. That procedure follows a Word document with tables (example available on the site) that contains a large number of S&R rules. An XML document is also possible. Your own rules can be added to that, there is an internal editor for this to make it easier. The dutch version has much more standard available than the English, but if you send me additions (not via this forum please to keep the thread clean) I will add them to the base document. Some S&R are language independent.
The third procedure is to check all dialogues in the system if they are correct. With correct I mean having an opening and an ending quote. I check for 3 kind of quotes: single, double and guillemets (« »). Almost all variants are available to support multiple languages. The procedure can also check the various types of parenthesis.
The fourth procedure is useful for languages that are not using accented words frequently in my opinion. It checks all accents to check they are correct. Words can be added to a temporary list to skip them for the remainder of the document.
The fifth procedure is basically my HTML export macro (with some changes). The sixth procedure is taking the HTML export and creates a base ePUB ready to be loaded into Sigil or the Calibre Editor. You can make additions like adding a title, author, description and cover. A basic table of contents is created. If desired, a stylesheet can be created based on the layout in Word. Foot- and endnotes are supported as well. If desired, the document can be split per chapter during the creation of the ePUB.

There are many more features and tools. For more information see my site or the online help.

The add-in, manual and supporting document can be downloaded here.

Enjoy.

Then you probably downloaded the patch and not the program itself. The patch is for people that have the older version.

Toxaris,
Thank you for this add-in. I have successfully installed it on my Win 7 64-bit computer. I use Word 2002 (XP).
I must ask two questions:
1. How will I know that the add-in is working?
2. Will it work on documents that have already been created?
Thank you.
Frank

It will not work on Word 2002. You need to have the ribbon, so Word 2007 and later. Sorry.

FYI, for whatever reason, the PDF, of all things, seemed to choke Chrome. I had to use--wait for it--Exploder to dl the PDF, LOL.

The PDF works fine in Firefox. I gave up Chrome when I found out how not as good as Firefox it really is.
