I'm still somewhat of a rookie with computers, so my apologies if I don't use all the correct terminology, etc. Now to my problem... Just recently purchased the Activ eBook Compiler. I read the tutorial, and did my best to everything exactly as explained. Started out using the Activ Quick Project tool. So far, so good. It set up the 3 folders, etc. Then, I started the compiler. Went to File on toolbar, and clicked "open". So far, all goes as expected. Next, I go to "build" on toolbar, and click onto "build". But, no matter what I attempt from this point I just have a big FUBAR here. I either get a pop-up telling me I'm trying to compile an empty folder (even tho when I hold my cursor on that folder it shows the files being in it that I had drug into it). Or the pop-up that tells me that I failed to put an an "index.html" file into the folder.
Before putting the data into the file to be compiled, I right clicked with the page of text on my screen that I'm wanting to compile and then left clicked on the "view source" line of the menu box that opened up when I right clicked. This converted (?) the page into HTML. I then right clicked again, and this time cliced onto the "select all" line. Then went to "edit" on toolbar and clicked "copy". Then went into "file" on toolbar and clicked "save as" to put it into its file.
Am I explaining this good enough to enable anyone to possibly give me a clue as to what I might be doing wrong? I'm nowhere as computer literate as all of you that will be reading this, so it will be very easy for you to talk over my head. Any and all who are willing to be patient enough to reply and attempt to help will be greatly appreciated.
Just a big THANK YOU for taking the time and trouble to reply to my plea for help. I just a minute or so ago read your posting. Your suggestions all look understandable and workable (for my feeble brain!). Hopefully it'll get me where I need to be.
Thanks again for your help. Darrel Wallace (jakester)
