separate pages

americamba Sunil and friends,

Hi, I still like the program, have been running trials,  and you probably got me... but a few questions. I appreciate your help

1. my source manuscript had page breaks in Word. In html, of course they disappear. I would like to have many of them (like chapters) back. Is there any way to do it besides, cutting and renaming page by page in word, and then saving as web page, and then putting them all into source directory compile? Is there a way to work in Word and just put in a code, or to drag and drop somehow that is not so tedious, page by page?

Isay in Word  because html is harder because of all the garbage code that is generated when I "save as" from Word. I haven't looked at arachnofilia yet. Will that help me?

I hope you understand the question.

2. Another issue; I have done a trial. It is 4.9 megs, a lot of wav files, all at minimum kHz. Any way to get this more compressed?

Thanks, Frank Gerace

EBookCompiler There's no easy way to split the Word file completely automatically

What you can try - is move to the end of the first page, start Word's macro recorder (actually you might want to do a couple of practice runs before doing this for real), and use Ctrl+Shift+Home to select every to the start of the document, Ctrl+C to cut, Ctrl+N to start a new document, Ctrl+V to paste and so on (this might not be exactly the key).  Once you have a procedure for the first page, stop the macro recorder, and assign the macro to a keystroke in Word.  Then when you what to split the document, you can jump to the right place, hit the key, etc.  You could even make the macro search for page or chapter breaks etc. to make the splits automatically.  

For the WAV files, WAV files are usually already compressed.  If they are voice, make sure they are recorded in mono, and if you have a sound editing program you can experiment with different kHz rates and less bits per sample (lower kHz, lower bits = lower quality but smaller file).  You can get a way with a LOT (very low settings) on speech without making it unrecognizable.  For music, you need to be a bit more careful.

americamba Sunil,

Hi, Thanks for your last answer to my post "separate pages" on July 12 about splitting pages out of a Word doc. I got them done, now I have 17 docs. I did them with a word macro, not too bad...

But now all these have to be turned into html and THEN have all the table, and color html put in all of them. Ugh!!! Too bad Bill Gates and Word didn't think of us...

tlmorris I don't know if this will help or not (I've never used it since I prefer to handcode my html pages) but Firstpage (a free html editor from Evrsoft software) has a function that is supposed to clean the junk code left by Word (if you save each page as an html file). Again, I've never used this feature of Firstpage (but they have been great for html coding), however it might be worth a try.
