2 questions

cinemania Hi, just a couple of questions:
1/ How are the files sorted when they show up on the contents button on the compiler? Are they listed alphabetically, or just as they appear in the file they are compiled from?
2/Read recently in a local newspaper that Microsoft are planning to change their operating system and are moving away from windows, to NT I think. How will this affect the Activ E compiler? Will you plan for a new version when this happens?

EBookCompiler 1/ Go to the Files tab, check out the list

All the HTML files are displayed first, all the rest after
You can change the order of the HTML files:

In version 4 (easy) by clicking on an HTML file and using the arrow buttons on the toolbar

In version 3 (harder) by using the sort code features (double click on a file in the list)

If you have version 4 go the the Help, and at the bottom of the yellow menu is an item called "The Table Of Contents".  This whole page is about customizing the table of contents.  At the bottom of this page are the options specifically relating to the button

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have questions.

2/ We already run on NT, 2000, etc., as well as 95, 98

Yes we'll update our software and keep up.

Microsoft has announced a new version a whole series of (in my eyes) partially contradictory announcements: a new version of Windows, a move to a subscription model (you pay them a monthly or annual fee to use MS Office etc), new Microsoft Office versions, etc.  

But if things follow Microsoft usually pattern, there is usual 2-3 years between each major release from them, and maybe another year before people are using their new stuff commonly.  Basically they usually announce a plan a long time before it comes true - and when it does come true, what actually happens isn't always exactly like the early announcements.

The historical record of MS is sorta like this (I may be out on one or two of the years)
Windows 3  - 1990
Windows 3.1 - 1992
Windows 95 - 1995
Windows 98 - 1998
Windows 2000 - 2000

I think there is also a reasonable chance that Microsoft might be organized differently by the time a new version of Windows/etc. is ready, because of the government  anti-trust case against them.
