Strange Problem

acpeter Hi!
This eBook software works great, but I have just encountered a strange problem.

I have set up a sub directory with html pages titled as "MyBook - Template". That allows me to configure everything and add links, pictures, etc. and get all the page numbering working. I copy that index.html template as page 1, page 2, etc. With the links all working in the template, I have copied ALL files into another subdirectory to make the actual finished book.

Now, in the NEW subdirectory, I have added all the text and info (blah-blah) to the template pages. Then EACH of the pages was RETITLED with the "ACTUAL Book Title - Page 1", and then Page 2 for page 2, and so on.

Ran Quick Project. Worked great!
Copied ALL the edited files (with proper page title and page number) into the source directory. Ran ebook compiler... worked great. Only one problem.

In the status bar, I am STILL getting the "TEMPLATE" page title appearing. I do NOT get the MyBookTitle - Page1 etc. What's up?

Thanks in advance for your help!

EBookCompiler It's getting the page titles from the titles in the Files tab.

And the titles in the files tab must have been retrieved from the files when you hadn't bothered setting them in the HTML.

Two possible fixes:

Either:  Go to Files tab, and edit the titles there
(in fact you needn't bother correcting the Titles in the HTML as nothing in the ebook reads them)

Or: Fix the titles in the HTML, then force the compiler to re-read them. Unfortunately there is no function for this.  So a quick fix would be to do Edit/Scan Folder on an empty folder, then do Edit/Scan Folder back on your real folder.   Downside to this method is if you've ordered the pages in the Files tab, the files may now be in the wrong order (so you'll need to order them again using blue arrows in toolbar above Files tab).

acpeter Wow! Thanks for the prompt response!
So you know, the html files already did have the corrected name (titles) in them.
What I did was basically follow your 2nd option. I opened the project, went to edit/scan and changed folders (to an empty one). It said there were no files there. Went back to scan the proper 'source' folder and bada-bing-bada-boom! The proper html title tags appeared.

Built the book and it's perfect! Thanks again! Noe just gotts go sell the darn thing!
