Jutoh 2.17

Advertisements

Jutoh creates ebooks in Epub, Mobipocket, OpenDocument and plain text formats. The first two cover most requirements - Epub is the standard with the most support from ebook reader manufacturers and publishers, including Apple with their iBooks platform, while Mobipocket covers Amazon`s Kindle platform. Jutoh also creates OpenDocument (ODT) files, which you can open directly using OpenOffice.org to create PDF or other linear formats. ODT files can be optimized for submission to the popular Smashwordsplatform.
Adding a professional-looking cover is important in helping you sell your book. Jutoh includes a simple cover designer with templates for you to use immediately, or you can tweak them and create your own designs. Your title, author name and publisher are automatically inserted into the design. If you already have a cover design, you can use that. You can even keep several alternative designs in your project and see which works best, or use different covers for different sites or editions.
The New Project Wizard helps you import existing content, whether from a word processor file, HTML files or even an existing ebook. You can decide how to split up a document into sections, using either styles in the document or a pattern that matches section headings. This makes creating your ebooks as quick and painless as possible.

  • Shows advice to edit the style if trying to remove a page break from a non-automatic style.
  • Now warns about empty sections, which cause EpubCheck errors.

  • In the document properties dialog, renamed "Scripted" to "JavaScript" and also added "SVG", "XML" and "Remote resources" checkboxes for Epub 3 compatibility.
  • Added an Objects tab to the Formatting Palette, listing all the objects that can be inserted into a document, including new 'tag' objects representing HTML tags.

  • Added a "Tidy XML" checkbox to the Epub code viewer, to make XML easier to read.
  • Jutoh now adds CSS defaults for table cells to match the Jutoh defaults (i.e. left and top-aligned).
  • Added a "Use minimum size for cells" configuration option, which swaps table cell sizes for minimum sizes to avoid bad formatting in ADE.
  • Paragraph tags containing a single table or box are now optimized out if not applying optimization for centering these objects.
  • Added "Enable images" to advanced preferences, to allow troublesome images to be deleted without loading them.
  • Added "Allow reflowable and fixed layout" configuration option, so you can now mix the types of document (probably only useful for Epub 3).

  • Fixed duplicate attributes and style bug for images.
  • Fixed a bug calculating CSS widths, resulting in too-small widths.
  • Fixed a bug in copying from table cells so that selection of all of a single cell's content doesn't copy a sub-table.
  • Lists are now terminated correctly within containers such as tables.
  • Fixed a crash splitting a document containing text boxes or tables.
  • If display:inline-block isn't being used for box or table centering, Jutoh removes the enclosing paragraph tags around a single box or table since it can cause problems for Kindle when boxes or tables are nested.
  • Improved Document | Show Documents in Browser command to show the correct styling.
  • Removed all print commands except File | Print, which shows the book as a single file in the default web browser for printing. This will give a better result than the previous method of printing.

  • Added a new sample, "Epub 3 Sample.jutoh".
  • Removed redundant, Internet Explorer-specific Document | Import Favourites.
  • Added image size to the image properties dialog.
  • See also changes in Jutoh 1.76.

v1.75 [12-30-13]

  • Fixed broken bookmarks and duplicated index entries when endnotes contain index entries.
  • Enabled index entry insertion in footnotes.
  • The list attribute reset line at the top of the CSS file is now retained for Mobipocket generation, and the KF8-specific list indent generation has been removed, since these differences from Epub generation were both unnecessary.
  • Now shows the title of the document containing the index item in the list of index entries.
  • In ODT generation, image and (in Jutoh 2) text box frame names are now always unique to prevent loading failure in recent versions of LibreOffice.
  • Styles which have been applied to content but are absent from the style sheet are now shown in the description window of the Formatting Palette.
  • Now suppresses potentially confusing warning messages when browsing broken images in the thumbnail picture browser.
  • No longer applies the iBooks image sizing optimization for images in text boxes or tables.
  • Fixed bug whereby if values were left blank in string tables, the name of the string would appear as the value the next time the project was opened.
  • No longer generates the "type" attribute for list items in Mobipocket mode since it doesn't help KF7 devices and it causes unnecessary EpubCheck errors.
  • When importing from a file and checking "Discard imported styles and apply Jutoh styles", Jutoh now replaces all character styles with automatic styles based on the style attributes. This means that bold, italics and so on will be preserved even though the original styles are no longer present.
  • When exporting to HTML with navigation, the cover is now included in the navigation sequence.
  • When importing stylesheets, Jutoh now asks whether the user wants to keep any styles that are not defined in the new stylesheets.
  • When switching between configurations in the Configurations panel, the current search string is applied to the newly selected configuration, fixing behaviour that required the user to delete and retype a character to redo the search.
  • Added a new KB article KB0118, "How can I test my Epub and Kindle books?" listing methods and applications for testing ebooks.
  • On Linux and Mac, now copies any new sample that isn't in the Jutoh Samples folder on startup.

v1.74 [12-12-13]

  • Added separator options to indexing, and also the ability to only show linked numbers instead of the linked entry text followed by linked numbers if more than one entry.
  • Added the ability to specify the first few letters to apply a style to, in addition to words, in the Cleanup Document dialog option "Apply character style...".
  • Now avoids clashing overstrike/double strikethrough when importing from DOCX and exporting to ODT.
  • Building a TOC no longer creates two TOC entries with the same bookmark for the same HTML file (section), since that causes EpubCheck errors. This could happen when a level 2 or more heading was found, but not a level 1 heading, and then Jutoh add a level 1 entry using the first bookmark it found - which had already been used by the level 2 heading.
  • Fixed a bug duplicating the play order in an NCX if you checked the configuration option "Include cover in NavMap".
  • In quoted values in Jutoh scripts, it's now possible to include a quotation mark by escaping it with a backslash, or double-backslash in complex value specifications.
  • Leading and trailing spaces are now trimmed from metadata to avoid inconsistent identifier errors.

v1.73 [11-29-13]

  • Improved list indentation for Epub and Kindle. Indentation calculation for KF8 has been added, and is done differently from KF8 than it is for Epub, since KF8 seems to measure indent from previous paragraph left edge to bullet instead of previous paragraph left edge to current paragraph left edge.
  • Now recognises escaped colons (\:) in index entries when importing from DOCX.
  • Fixed missing end div tag in iBooks-optimized images when using Document | Show Documents in Browser.
  • Removed the ability to close the Desktop tab.
  • Added "Link format" field to the Index page to specify how numbered links will appear.
  • Ordered lists now only have the "value" attribute in HTML if the numbering is non-contiguous, since EpubCheck objects to it.
  • Added a tip for when EpubCheck objects to a "value" attribute in an ordered list item.
  • Improved indentation of lists when importing from DOCX.
  • No longer uses a bullet/numbering font for the whole paragraph when importing a list from DOCX.
  • Fixed a bug when repairing character names, whereby spurious "Current" styles would be generated. This would also cause error messages about the style names not being found, when compiled.
  • Documented the Jutoh standard styles in the section "All about style sheets".

v1.72 [11-28-13]

  • Added Remove redundant character formatting option to the Document Cleanup dialog.
  • Added Convert bookmarks to footnotes for content imported from InDesign HTML option to the Document Cleanup dialog.
  • Added a Change Case submenu to the Format menu.
  • Added Superscript, Subscript, Capitals, Small Capitals and Strikethrough menu commands to the Format | Text submenu, and to the toolbars.
  • When renumbering list items, you can specify a starting number since it is now implemented in popular ereaders.
  • Added "Cover image width" configuration property for scaling the cover image.
  • Fixed a bug whereby locked documents such as Content could still be deleted.
  • The HTML Object properties dialog position and size is now saved between invocations and sessions.
  • In new Smashwords OpenDocument configurations, "Use outline levels" is switched off by default due to a possible conflict with Smashwords Meatgrinder.
  • Changed the order in which bookmarks are found when creating tables of contents, so that a single bookmark object at the top of a section will be found.
  • When creating a table of contents, a top-level item will now be created if only non-top-level headings were found, for example in the Lena sample's title page.
  • Improved the behaviour of bookmark and URL dialogs when a standalone bookmark object is selected (a combined URL and bookmark is no longer shown).
  • Corrected bookmark massaging in images for valid HTML ids, and in content.opf, Jutoh now replaces periods with an underscore when making an image id from a file name, to avoid names such as 1.11.jpg and 11.1.jpg producing the same identifier.
  • Added the ability to specify an SVG file when inserting an image via the "insertfile" command in a Jutoh script file. The SVG file is added as a media document, and a dummy bitmap image is added to the content with the SVG file as the alternative image to use. The configuration property "Use SVG images" must be checked for this to export to Epub or Mobipocket correctly.
  • In HTML/Epub/Mobi generation, links to bookmarks in the same file are optimized by omitting the filename. This fixes a problem with popup notes on iBooks.
  • Fixed an HTML code generation bug whereby the keyword "__SEMICOLON_" could be left in the text if converting non-breaking hyphens to hyphens.
  • Improved automatic style creation when turning ad hoc (direct) formatting on and off. In particular, redundant styles containing default formatting are no longer created when turning formatting off.
  • Jutoh now gives the number of changes that were made during document cleanup.
  • When importing Epub and HTML files, Jutoh adds a bookmark for each span that has an identifier.
  • Epub import now replaces more percent-encoded characters in file names, such as single quotes.
  • Made TOC-building patterns and some configuration properties insensitive to spaces around the '|' character separating multiple patterns.
  • Search in the page link dialog now happens as you type, and the tab key now works within the search control.
  • HTML import now copes with files that use div tags instead of paragraph tags.
  • HTML import now respects the "Split by page break" import option.
  • Jutoh now respects the configuration option "Include cover page in NavMap" even in advanced TOC mode.
  • Fixed bug in advanced search and replace whereby clearing "Match accents" removes accents from the replacement text.
  • The "Normal" style (and styles based on it) in the default style sheet no longer has after-paragraph space, for new projects.
  • Fixed a bug when importing a cover design in a new project whereby the image would be loaded and saved unnecessarily, which could lose some information such as the colour profile.
  • Fixed main window shrinking between sessions on Mac.
  • Changed the colour scheme slightly for the tool palette on Windows.
  • A change in metadata now refreshes the cover thumbnail.
  • Added documentation to a number of dialogs to make it easier to find out how to show the dialogs.
  • Fixed a number of formatting errors in the French manual, especially in the menu reference sections.

v1.71 [07-23-13]

  • Added Merge Paragraphs command to the Edit menu.
  • Added "Pre-compile command" and "Post-compile command" configuration properties for executing external commands or Jutoh scripts before or after compilation.
  • Added "Mobipocket anchor optimization" configuration property to allow disabling anchor optimization if preferred.
  • In Mobipocket mode, optimization tries to add bookmarks as ids for the current paragraph instead of a separate anchor; in Epub and HTML modes, this is also done, but only if the bookmark is the first object in the paragraph (only). This optimization cuts down on EpubCheck errors for Mobipocket-optimized files, and also tidies the HTML source and makes it easier to edit in tools such as Sigil.
  • Some configuration properties are now linked to other implied properties, so for example checking "Generate Mobipocket" causes "Mobipocket anchor optimization" to be switched on.
  • When using multiple TOCs, it is now possible to set the same section as the start and end section to scan.
  • The keyboard shortcuts for commands on the Tools menu are now editable.
  • Custom tools can now specify .jutohscript files in Jutoh Plus.
  • The log window is now a rich text control, so that it can display coloured warnings and errors from scripts when run from custom tools.
  • Now fixes up the bookmark in the NavMap for a recently generated TOC, avoiding a NavMap warning in Mobipocket mode because the bookmark in the first entry wasn't found.
  • Fixed editing in the Script Dialog after customising the text editor.
  • Added Preferences/Advanced/Caret blink interval option for changing the blink interval and switching off the caret (Linux and Mac only). The caret on Linux and Mac is now the colour of the editor text foreground colour.
  • Now Jutoh only purges unused automatic styles from a document just after opening the document, instead of when saving, so that undo/redo operations can't reinsert styles that have just been purged.
  • Fixed stripping of accents from bookmarks in NCX and HTML files.
  • Now checks whether the folder containing a project file to be opened is writable, and if not, the project is marked as read-only.
  • Opening a project explicitly as read-only doesn't now cause another read-only prompt.
  • If a Jutoh backup file can't be created because the folder was read-only, Jutoh silently fails to make the backup rather than giving an error message.
  • If a document save operation fails, the user is given the chance of ignoring it so that the project and application can be closed.
  • Fixed a bug in image properties when using a non-English language, that caused the translated alignment to be passed to CSS.
  • Fixed a missing bookmark bug when compiling OpenDocument configurations with endnotes.
  • Fixed Numbering by Chapter option in footnotes properties.
  • Fixed a bug in asset import whereby the asset contents would be lost if no further edits were made.
  • Fixed a missing style error when compiling footnotes for text format.
  • Scripting: ensured correct ordering of insertfile commands in a script.
  • Scripting: added text file import to insertfile.
  • Scripting: added the "encoding" parameter for insertfile.
  • Scripting: added the "style" parameter to specify a style to apply to the imported file.
  • Scripting: fixed a bug whereby the keyword might not be found in the content due to fragmentation.
  • On Linux, opening projects from the file manager no longer runs multiple instances of Jutoh.
  • Improved MIME type association in Linux installations; added "jutoh finishinstall" command for setting Jutoh as the default application for its files, if necessary.
  • Added the image size to the image properties dialog.
  • Added further Knowledge Base articles.
  • Made configuration property names clickable in Knowledge Base articles.

v1.70 [07-01-13]

  • Added a Welcome window on the Jutoh desktop, with quick access to recently-used files. A new setting in Preferences/General allows this to be shown or hidden on startup.
  • Added a new full-text search facility accessed with Help | Search Help (Alt+Z) or by typing text into the search field on the main toolbar. Searches manuals, commands and configuration properties.
  • Added a 'Knowledge Base' manual with lots of short topics, to complement the new search facility.
  • Fixed a bug whereby the URL style doesn't get used in a newly-created TOC page.
  • Added the configuration option "Styles with font names" to allow specific styles to write their font names to CSS, leaving other styles to obey the configuration font name options.
  • Document cleanup now removes tabs from anywhere in a paragraph, not just the beginning or end.
  • Fixed an editor positioning bug in Find (sometimes it would not show the found text just after opening a document).
  • Advanced find dialog: now shows a busy cursor when working, and after a completed search, the user can do another search for a different target without having to close the Find dialog first.
  • Advanced find dialog: fixed search for font size attributes, and allowed character and paragraph attribute search to coexist.
  • Advanced find dialog: added Character/Paragraph Formatting and Remove Character/Paragraph Formatting commands to the replacement options.
  • When specifying simple TOC mode in the TOC wizard, Jutoh now switches off automatic TOC creation before each compilation, since it could erroneously cause the TOC to be built.
  • Jutoh scripts: added the ability to insert a media object.
  • Jutoh scripts: added size, maximum size and padding parameters for image insertion.
  • When a style has a background colour, Jutoh now shows it in the style lists to avoid the name becoming invisible.
  • When converting Epub 2 identifiers to Epub 3, the opf:scheme property is removed and the identifier value is converted to the urn: form if possible (for isbn, uuid and ean scheme values). Also, the title-type attribute required for multiple titles in Epub 3 is removed for Epub 2 generation.
  • Fixed a problem with the status of undocked windows not being reflected correctly in the menu status; Jutoh also now keeps the formatting palette or help window shown if one of the other windows is undocked, allowing simultaneous viewing of these windows if required.
  • When showing a palette, if the help window is showing it is first hidden so the palette can be shown (previously it flickered on and off if the help window was visible).
  • Fixed a bug deleting list styles.
  • Fixed a bug whereby closing the error/log pane using the X button would not stick when next running Jutoh.
  • Fixed a bug causing unresolved bookmarks for endnotes.
  • Fixed a bug in Save As that converted the original file name to lower case.
  • DOCX import now takes section breaks (w:sectPr) into account.
  • Added a check for accented style names, which are invalid in HTML/CSS.
  • Added a check for invalid characters below ASCII 32.
  • Updated EpubCheck to version 3.0.1.

v1.69 [05-29-13]

  • Fixed lack of colour/underline application to URLs imported from HTML.
  • In HTML import, interprets %20 as space for CSS files, fixing some import failures.
  • In HTML import, failure to find a CSS or image file results in a warning.
  • Advanced TOC generation now takes into account the Show in TOC and Show in NavMap options in document properties.
  • Fixed encoding of Chinese characters (and other non-European languages) in footnotes and HTML objects.
  • Fixed invalid identifiers imported from HTML.
  • Fixed a bug in the initial display of the pattern in the Single Text Import page of the New Project wizard.
  • If a Jutoh style sheet is imported, the palette style list is now updated appropriately.
  • When importing HTML, table elements are retained as-is with the "HTML" paragraph style.
  • When generating HTML for a project that was imported from Jutoh-generated HTML, no longer generates styles of the form "P_p_...".
  • Fixed an HTML generation bug whereby an extra div used for centering became entangled in the last list item.
  • Fixed a crash in Edit | Copy Documents when the Create as children control is checked.
  • It is no longer possible to accidentally add a new style whose name contains '+' (which Jutoh reserves as indicating an automatic style).
  • Spellchecking now treats a typographical apostrophe as a straight apostrophe.
  • Improved initial display on Windows when Jutoh runs and is loading a file.
  • Added 6" x 9" size for ODT output, and sorted the paper types.

v1.68 [05-24-13]

  • For HTML-based formats, nested lists can now be of different types without starting a new list (which could cause numbering problems).
  • Fixed list indentation for Kindle since behaviour appears to have got closer to Epub layout.
  • Fixed a bug in Epub/HTML import where the cover design name was not set if an image was selected for the cover.
  • Fixed a URL import bug in Epub/HTML import.

  • Added a warning about tabs.
  • Added a warning about the first item in a navmap needing a bookmark (to work around a Kindle navigation bug).

  • Fixed a problem parsing kindlegen's output when finding version, since Amazon changed the output slightly.
  • Improved the appearance of the Document page in Project Properties, and added Load XML and Save XML buttons.

  • Fixed export to text when using binary mode for text documents.
  • Corrected insertion of spurious align="left" code after a list item in some circumstances, during Mobipocket generation. Forcing left-alignment in list items (to avoid ugly justification) is now up to the author, by the use of appropriate paragraph styles.
  • Fixed import of a linked image from DOCX when the file is expressed as a URL.
  • Corrected a problem in ODT import stopping cover image guessing from working.
  • Improved detection of separate lists in DOCX, by looking for w:numId uniqueness.
  • Corrected imported hyperlink resolution to take into account https addresses.
  • No longer resets URLs after searching and replacing styles.
  • Fixed a bug whereby text size changed after applying list style via the Formatting Palette.
  • Fixed a hang when the splash screen is enabled and opening a file triggering a version prompt from a file manager.
  • Added Jutoh version build number to saved project, for showing in Project Properties/Info.
  • Updated EpubCheck to version 3.0 (2012-12-21).
  • Removed the obsolete preflight checker, and added a check in Jutoh for files larger than 300k.
  • Now copes with nested hyperlinks when importing DOCX files.
  • Reduced the likelihood of duplicate id errors in HTML output by taking existing bookmarks into account when generating automatic image ids.
  • Added "Repair missing character style names" option to Document Cleanup dialog to fix missing character styles in the text.
  • Added "Join Document" command to complement the "Split Document" command.
  • Corrected NCX output for Epub 3 so EpubChecker 3 doesn't complain about the DOCTYPE.
  • In DOCX import, replaces "+" with "And" in style names to avoid confusion with Jutoh automatic styles.
  • In DOCX import, added support for the "w:sym" symbol tag, and added conversion of certain Wingdings and Symbol font special symbols to Unicode with a warning if none could be found.
  • In DOCX import, list formatting that has no bullet or numbering type is ignored in order to avoid spurious list item generation.
  • In DOCX import, character attributes defined in numbering are now taken into account.
  • Footnote link is now output with the text attributes taken from the footnote object.
  • The default MIME type for TTF files is now "application/vnd.ms-opentype", to satisfy EpubChecker in Epub 3 mode.
  • Added configuration options "Widow control", "Orphan control".
  • Now removes spaces from HTML and inline image files, and the warning about file names containing spaces is now more emphatic, since some ereaders have problems with spaces in file names.
  • Added defaults for important metadata in Preferences/Advanced. The default Language metadata is initialised from the current locale when Jutoh first runs, if possible.
  • Added Language to the initial metadata pane in the New Project wizard.
  • Spell-checking now prompt the user to check each document in the project.
  • In the style find dialog, no longer loses the current selections when switching between paragraph and character style modes.
  • Fixed a crash when running a script due to uninitialised tables of content data.
  • Fixed a crash when generating HTML in Jutoh Plus where project-wide assets are being used.

v1.66 [04-05-13]

  • Added "Use custom DPI for conversions" option in Project Preferences to increase inconsistency when converting sizes to pixels.
  • Added "Font size units" and "Dimension units" configuration options to allow conversion to specified units (for example pixels, to conform to iBooks fixed layout requirements).
  • Added "Apply character style to the first n words" to Document Cleanup dialog, to add special styling to the start of chapters.
  • Added "Emulate small caps" configuration option, enabled by default to cover the widest number of systems. Now explicitly transforms text to capitals in emulation mode, so the result looks reasonable in ADE. Also changed the emulation scale factor to 80% since 75% was a bit on the small side.
  • Improved list import from DOCX when the list level was left unspecified.
  • Worked around a missing cover bug when using Calibre to generate a .mobi file, by always generating the HTML cover page. This avoids the cover image being removed from the output.
  • Fixed a crash when switching off the style drop-down control in toolbar customisation.
  • Removed unnecessary left margin in configuration options and advanced preferences.
  • Pressing Ctrl+F in the configuration editor switches the keyboard focus to the search control.
  • In HTML generation, bold and italics are optimized to use the relevant tags instead of CSS classes.
  • Improved initial display of text files in Epub viewer.
  • No longer includes any unit specification in width and height HTML image attributes since this isn't recognised by some viewers. Absolute dimensions are converted to pixels if necessary.
  • When compiling a Mobipocket file, the progress dialog is no longer hidden early.
  • Styles in HTML list code now have shorter names, to make it more readable.
  • In HTML generation, bullet list styles are now explicitly reset when they are not used to ensure they don't override non-bitmap bullets in deeper list levels.
  • Corrected TTF and OTF media types, which should be application/x-font-ttf and application/vnd.ms-opentype respectively.
  • The font document media type control now marks the document as modified if the user types text into it.
  • No longer places automatic bookmarks in special objects such as media objects, which could cause missing bookmark errors.
  • Fixed a problem with text size in list items getting smaller and deeper levels due to cumulative font sizing.
  • Fixed a problem in the online help when showing an external web page.
  • The help contents is now synchronized with the page that is currently showing.
  • Added "Mobipocket bookmark warning" advanced setting to switch "element 'a' not allowed here" errors on and off. Now Jutoh doesn't filter these errors out automatically, unless this setting is switched off. It could be confusing if standalone EpubCheck showed the errors, and Jutoh didn't.
  • Added a warning if two configurations generate the same Epub or Mobipocket file.
  • Avoid a crash in DOCX import if a style is used by a paragraph but not found in the style sheet.
  • Fixed a bug in DOCX causing styles to be removed if the style name happened to be the same as an existing style id.

v1.65 [02-28-13]

  • Added "Generate iBooks XML" to allow the choice of generating the com.apple.ibooks.display-options.xml file independently of iBooks optimizations in the HTML. This is useful for submitting to some ebook sites that don't allow the XML file to be present.
  • Added support for multiple tables of contents, for example to implement tables of figures or multiple books within a single ebook.
  • Added support for bitmap bullets for Epub and Kindle by specifying a media document file name in the "Standard bullet name" field of the list style editor.
  • Added support in Document Cleanup for also replacing blank paragraphs before a specified paragraph style is encountered, as well as after.
  • Added "Styles suppressing page break before", "Styles suppressing page break after" configuration options for orphan control.
  • The Find command now highlights footnotes that contain the search text.
  • Improved the horizontal rule dialog and HTML code generation. You can now specify more rule options, such as a dotted or dashed line, and custom CSS.
  • Added "Scale factor for vector images" to Preferences/Import, in order to improve the resolution of WMF images imported from DOCX or ODT.
  • Fixed importing linked (external) images from DOCX and ODT.
  • When importing lists from DOCX, Jutoh now analyzes whether outline-style lists (often in headings) can be supported throughout the document, which they can't if they're non-contiguous. If they can't be supported, the numbering is rendered 'inline' and list formatting removed from all paragraphs referencing these lists.
  • Fixed a bug that replaced left braces with a soft hyphen.
  • When creating a new style or style sheet, the 'Based on' field is now called 'Copy from' to avoid confusion with a style's base style (the style from which this style dynamically inherits attributes). 'Copy from' specifies a starting set of attributes or styles.
  • Corrected a renumbering problem when applying a list style from the formatting palette.
  • Fixed Kindlegen version-reporting bug in locales that don't use periods for floating point numbers.
  • Removed an unnecessary second warning dialog after a second instance of Jutoh fails to communicate with the first instance.
  • Added warnings if a valid cover design was not specified in the configuration.
  • Fixed a bug whereby "Orphan control for single-letter words" could lead to missing text after footnotes in the generated book.
  • Made some of the non-editable choices in configurations editable, to correctly reflect names that may not exist in the available choices.
  • Fixed "overall font" button on tool palette which didn't work if the horizontal toolbar wasn't shown.
  • Corrected "Only Smashwords OpenDocument" style in new projects, which had an erroneous asterisk appended to the name.
  • Fixed a bug with pasted paragraphs showing at the wrong size until the document was reopened, if the current editor text size is smaller or larger than the default.
  • Fixed a bug with double (or infinite) covers appearing on the Nook.
  • Jutoh now tries to be more helpful and offer Kindlegen installation if a Mobipocket compilation fails.

v1.64 [01-18-13]

  • Added further properties to media objects in line with those that can be specified for an image, such as maximum width and identifier.
  • Added tags to media documents, and new configuration properties "Exclude media documents matching tags", "Exclude media documents matching tags" to control which media documents are written to the ebook.
  • Added "Experimental fast loading" advanced setting which drastically speeds up loading for large images. After saving a book section with this setting checked, earlier versions of Jutoh will not be able to read the project file.
  • Added "Custom paper width", "Custom paper height" configuration properties for ODT export in case the desired size is not in the "Paper size" list.
  • Added "Dots per inch" configuration property for ODT export to give a default resolution for images where an absolute size has not been specified.
  • In Jutoh scripts, fixed file insertion to use the correct parent when specifying after-section or before-section.
  • Fixed a bug whereby adding a configuration based on ebook format could lose the original name that the user typed.
  • Corrected parts of the user interface that should have been disabled when the project is read-only.
  • The table of contents creation no longer skips headings with only a single character when looking for bookmarkable content (it could lead to automatic bookmarks being placed too far down the file).
  • Added a warning in the TOC wizard if no headings matched.
  • For new projects, TOC headings have the form "Heading 1*" with a wildcard by default, to catch derived styles.
  • When importing from HTML, the original character style names are now preserved when possible.
  • Fixed a problem when importing from DOCX whereby an underline colour specification caused unintended text underlining.
  • Fixed a problem with the editor sometimes locking up in Linux after a particular sequence of selection and context menu operations.
  • Reduced the number of Linux distributions by dynamically linking libpng 1.2 and adding FAQs for installing on distributions that need the PNG library to be installed. Jutoh now works on most modern Linux distributions.
  • When exporting images to ODT, a specified width or height is taken into account. Also, the image is kept within the paper width and height (minus specified margins). Percentage width or height is interpreted as a percentage of the paper width or height (minus margins).
  • Fixed a bug that crashed Jutoh when auto-saving with the "Switch Windows" dialog shown.
  • Fixed a bug with the Speak Document command.
  • Moved the speech commands to the View menu.
  • Added Compact Project to the File menu.
  • Added Edit Configuration (F3) to the Book menu.
  • Made the Log and Error windows tabs to save horizontal space and prepare for any further tools that may be added at the bottom of the Jutoh window in future.
  • Cut and Delete in the image context menu now work.
  • Disabled "Generate font names" and "Generate generic font names" by default, since in most cases it's better for the customer to be able to change fonts on the device.
  • Fixed a bug whereby data could be erroneously restored from old document versions during auto-save recovery, because the old auto-save data was not cleaned up properly.
  • Fixed a bug with the auto-save interval not being saved.

v1.63 [01-01-13]

  • Fixed HTML import in Format | Insert | Text File to honour CSS where possible, if specified in Preferences/Options; also added DOCX import.
  • Added HTML capability to insertfile command in Jutoh script.
  • Fixed a bug in bookmark handling that removed the first letter of the bookmark.

v1.60 [11-25-12]

  • Added "Generate generic font names" configuration property which if cleared, removes all font-family attributes from the CSS if "Generate font names" is also cleared.
  • Added "Generate colour" configuration property which if cleared, removes all colour from HTML CSS and also from ODT.
  • Added "Character substitutions" configuration property to transform characters in the content at ebook generation time.
  • If "Add thin spaces around punctuation" is enabled, en dash and em dash at the start of a paragraph are followed by a thin space.
  • Indexes are now sorted regardless of accents.
  • On Mac, fixed a problem entering text in configuration properties that have drop-down menus (if only one character was changed, the value would not be saved).
  • In registration dialogs, Jutoh now accepts a combined user name/key in the key field as provided by Ubuntu Software Center.
  • Added an installed and most recent version check when clicking 'Help Me Install Kindlegen'.
  • On Ubuntu, Jutoh now forces its menu to be attached to the application window instead of using the global menu, since bugs in the global menu cause various anomalies such as the menu bar being available when it shouldn't, and a lack of UI update processing.
  • Now imports page breaks correctly from DOCX files.
  • Fixed first-line indentation import from DOCX when only the first-line indent has been specified.
  • Fixed problems with import of hyperlinks and nested bookmarks from DOCX files.
  • Fixed a problem in DOCX import where ad hoc styling was lost from content with a named character style applied.
  • Fixed a problem in DOCX import where fonts were not assigned correctly if using the 'eastAsia' attribute.
  • Fixed a problem in DOCX import whereby overlapping bookmarks were discarded.
  • Fixed a bug in the new configuration dialog when selecting "Smashwords OpenDocument"; no longer sets the format to Epub.
  • Added Format | Text | Text Colour command and corresponding toolbar button.
  • Added a warning if multiple items in the table of contents point to the table of contents page itself.
  • Added a distribution for Linux Mint 14.

v1.59 [10-21-12]

  • Fixed HTML import failure when importing from a single HTML file in the New Project Wizard.

v1.58 [10-12-12]

  • Corrected erroneous EpubChecker installation path (an extra epubcheck-3.0b5 folder was created).
  • If the JAR file in the current EpubChecker command is not found when Jutoh starts, Jutoh will reset the command to the default. This works around the problem of Jutoh correcting the EpubCheck location in a later release, which may invalidate the user's customisation of the command.
  • Added a warning when the book only has one book section.
  • When double-clicking an error that doesn't have an associated line number, the associated tip is shown.
  • Added advanced setting "Single section warning".
  • Now outputs the generic font family to CSS where possible, even if specific font names are being suppressed.
  • Font names in character style definitions are now output to ODT.
  • Fixed a bug applying character styles, such as colour, to existing spans of styled text (the new style could disappear when the document was reloaded).
  • When selecting "Split by style" in the New Project Wizard, now correctly shows the preview if the user has typed a style name (for example including a wildcard) that is not in the list.
  • Fixed a bug in copy and paste whereby styles could be lost.
  • Removed redundant "Generate font embedding CSS" configuration property and now always generate this CSS if "Embed fonts" is enabled.
  • Fixed a problem importing character styles and lists from DOCX files.
  • In HTML output, two consecutive lists with no intervening content will be output as two separate lists so long as the list styles are different.
  • When splitting by style, Jutoh will not split at a section heading if the previous paragraph caused a split (when there is a subheading using the same style).
  • Bookmarks with the name "_GoBack" are ignored when importing from DOCX, since they are for Word internal use only.

v1.57 [10-04-12]

  • Jutoh is now distributed with EpubCheck 3.0b5 as it is the recommended version and works with both Epub 2 and 3.
  • Added a new formatting palette, with Tools, Styles and Favourites. This is shown and hidden using Format | Formatting Palette (Alt+P). This palette can be used to replace the regular formatting toolbar and also to give easier access to styles and favourites. The current styling can be described (paragraph, character and list styles), which will help users better understand the formatting in their projects.
  • The menu command Format | Edit Styles now uses the Project Properties dialog to edit styles, and also initially selects the style for the current paragraph, if not an automatic style.
  • The Project Properties dialog now uses a list of pages rather than a notebook, to allow room for further pages.
  • Added a new template system to allow further customisation of HTML and styling, per project and/or per section (Jutoh Plus).
  • Added a new Source Code Document type for Jutoh Plus, used in conjunction with the HTML template system. Also added Code Editor page to the Preferencs dialog to control editor appearance and behaviour.
  • Added Format | Asset Editor command for Jutoh Plus, showing editable templates and fragments for a document. Use the same command to switch back to the normal editor view.
  • Now imports author, title, subject and description from ODT and DOCX if not already specified.
  • Jutoh script commands no longer need to be numbered to make them unique.
  • Replaced the configuration edit icon with a text button, for clarity.
  • Made the registration dialog more compact.
  • Made numberous small fixes to the user interface including fixing control alignment issues on Mac.
  • It is now possible to reset the font face name attribute by leaving it blank in the font formatting dialog.
  • Added editor, font dialog and code generation support for the small capitals style.
  • Fixed a bug in ODT generation when tabs are defined for styles.
  • Fixed a bug in HTML list item generation.
  • The Verbosity setting in Preferences is now respected for warnings generated by Jutoh.
  • Added advanced settings to control whether indentation within lists and missing metadata trigger warnings.
  • Now stores publisher name and site between sessions to auto-fill these fields in the New Project Wizard; added advanced setting to control this behaviour.
  • Fixed a bug in search and replace that inserted a paragraph break if the replacement was empty.
  • Added Scripted option to the text book section properties dialog, to conform to Epub 3 requirements when JavaScript is used in the file.
  • Fixed duplicate identifiers in Epub 3 navmap lists.
  • In Epub 3 generation, only adds a landmarks nav map if there was at least one guide type defined for a document.
  • Added Id field in the image properties dialog; in scripts, an image identifer can be used instead of an image to specify an image.
  • Fixed a problem whereby the table of contents item in a navigation map on Kindle didn't navigate to the table of contents, due to a bookmark not being specified (only the overall file).
  • If Optimize for iBooks is specified, an image that is on its own in a paragraph, and has its size dimensions specified in its properties, is generated using a div that takes the dimensions of the image, and dimensions are removed from the image itself. This is because iBooks ignores width and height specifications in images.
  • Help window font settings are now saved between sessions.
  • In Word file import, the first letter of all imported style names are now forcibly capitalised since for some kinds of style are in lower-case in the .docx XML, leading to the presence of both "heading 1" and "Heading 1" styles, for example.
  • In Word file import, linked pictures are now preserved.
  • Removed View | Tabbed Document Mode toggle to help simplify the interface; the single-view mode is unnecessary.
  • Preamble now removed from HTML files if exporting MP3 files.
  • For standalone HTML configurations, now recursively copies the generated files to include user-defined resources.
  • For standalone HTML configurations, Jutoh uses the table of contents file as the preview file if no file is supplied in "Preview file name".
  • For Epubs, Jutoh now adds opf:role and opf:file-as attributes to the creator metadata if these are not already present. This helps files pass Lulu validation.
  • After creating a blank project, Jutoh prompts for a new book section document.
  • Jutoh now tells the user when trying to import the wrong kind of Office XML document; and also if the import yielded no content.
  • On Windows, the setup wizard now offers a choice between English, French and Dutch languages. The selected language is used on Jutoh startup if it had not been run previously.
  • Added -webkit-hyphens: none for hypenation suppression when "Optimize for iBooks" is enabled, so this now works in iBooks. Also added -moz-hyphens: none for all Epub targets, for Mozilla-based rendering engines.

v1.56 [08-27-12]

  • Added Word DOCX file import.
  • Added "Use div tag" configuration property to use div tags instead of p tags.
  • The File | Save As command now only saves current changes to the new file, preserving the old file, as the user might expect from using other applications. This means, for example, that unsaved document deletions will not be duplicated in the original file.
  • Added cover design guessing from single-file import, and added Restore Original Design to the Cover Design page in the New Project Wizard, when reimporting. This allows the user to choose between a guessed image in the file, and the original design which may have been edited since the previous import.
  • Added "Cover image format" which can be "JPEG", "PNG", or "Original" to use the exact image imported into the cover design.
  • Added the ability to insert SVG images as media objects.
  • Added a field in the image properties dialog for associating an SVG image with a bitmap image, with the configuration property "Use SVG images" controlling whether the SVG or the bitmap images are exported.
  • The font dialog for a span of text now only shows the common attributes of that span, not the attributes inherited from the paragraph. This makes it easier to see what ad hoc formatting has been applied.
  • Using the font dialog, you can now remove selected attributes without needing to reset all text formatting.
  • Added the ability to remove ad hoc text and background colour using the Document Cleanup dialog.
  • Added Justify menu command and toolbar button.
  • Fixed a bug that added an unnecessary 'effects' attribute to ad hoc (automatic) style names after closing the font dialog.
  • If an error is found within a footnote, Jutoh appends "in a footnote" to the error message to make this cleaer.
  • Fixed a bug in Document Cleanup that required each of font face and font size removal to be done separately.
  • Scripting: added "parent-section" parameter for creating a new section as a child of another one, and "insertfile" can now specify an image, DOCX or ODT file. The "name" parameter allows an inserted image to be naned. Properties of image objects can be changed using the syntax objects.imagename.property=value:"value";document="title".
  • When compiling Mobipocket from a script, no longer treats a warning as an error.
  • Fixed a bug whereby new Epub configurations were initialised with "Generate guide" disabled.
  • Now initialises Epub configurations with "Limit images to viewer size" checked, so images don't break across pages (this can get Epubs rejected from iTunes).
  • Removed linking from cover page image to web site from metadata since it can cause problems when touching the cover to turn the page.
  • Corrected a bug inserting non-wrapping thin spaces after punctuation.
  • Limited heading levels to a maximum of 6 in HTML export.
  • Now any text whose style matches the pattern HTML* (for paragraph styles) or HTML Text* (for character styles) will be treated as verbatim HTML, allowing different markup that can be conditionally compiled.
  • Added "shtml" as an HTML extension when searching for HTML files to import.
  • Fixed a false positive when checking for updates, due to a rounding error.
  • Shortcuts now work in the footnote editor.
  • When exporting to ODT, outputs more precise values for margins and indents.
  • No longer exports the Standard style twice to ODT.
  • Now imports images expressed as "object" tags in HTML.
  • Fixed conversion of spans containing style attributes, in HTML import.
  • Fixed a problem with language setting in the Setup Wizard.
  • Checking "Use document depth" in the Table of Contents wizard now yields a more sensible table of contents with one heading per document instead of using all headings in each document. It also now respects the maximum level specified.
  • The automatically generated table of contents now has a bookmark to work around a non-functional table of contents link when using the navigation map in Mobipocket files, for Kindle Fire previewer mode or Kindle for Mac/PC.
  • No longer crashes if the user tries to create a new project with a file that is in use or read only.
  • Fixed a crash when checking a configuration with both Mobipocket and Epub formats and then double-clicking on an error.
  • Added support for multiple paragraphs within a single list item, by 'deleting' the bullet from a paragraph. For Mobipocket, multiple-paragraph list items are simulated by inserting a line break.
  • Added a warning about using paragraphs contining left indentation within a list.
  • Improved quality of HTML in Document | Show Documents in Browser command. The HTML file is now created in the temporary folder instead of the project folder.
  • When finding text using the Find dialog, if you type a different search pattern, the search will now start from the top of the current document.
  • Added media document to the drop-down list of documents available from the toolbar Documents button.

v1.55 [07-09-12]

  • Fixed a crash when using a template to create a new project.

v1.53 [05-22-12]

  • Added a French translation thanks to Véran Desjardins.
  • Added Edit | Copy Documents command to copy multiple documents from another loaded project.
  • Added configuration options "HTML top margin", "HTML bottom margin" and now generates @page instead of body margins.
  • Fixed a bug whereby some Kindlegen errors were only reported in Verbose mode.
  • No longer prepends "dc:" to new custom metadata elements.
  • Fixed a bug whereby incorrect registration was reported as correct.
  • Added configuration option "Styles suppressing hyphenation" to generate CSS to suppress hyphenation in Epubs where possible. By default, headings suppress hyphenation.
  • Fixed a crash bug when clicking on an object that no longer contains an image.
  • Now generates @media queries for Mobipocket generation to allow some formatting to work on both KF7 and KF8 devices, for example hanging indents.
  • If you use a font substitution that contains a standard font family identifier, such as serif, Jutoh will now only write the identifier once, for example font-family: serif. This way you can make the ebook independent of a specific font, or independent of certain fonts, on a per-configuration basis.
  • Added "Prompt for document deletion" control in Preferences/Project, and tidied up the Project settings page layout.
  • Fixed a bug whereby the data for a font or media document was not deleted from the project when the document was deleted. Existing projects can be cleaned up via Preferences/Project/Project Maintenance/Records/Delete Orphans, then compacting.
  • On Windows, if there is a crash but Jutoh could not automatically create an email, Jutoh will show the folder containing the debugging information.
  • Now warns if important metadata was absent, to avoid problems further along in the publication process.
  • Fixed a problem showing hints for some errors when a non-English language was selected.
  • When writing images to ODT, now takes account of image names to avoid saving duplicates.
  • Improved ODT nested text style import.
  • Improved ODT superscript and subscript import where text position is specified as a percentage.
  • Fixed ODT style import to take into account explicit 'normal' italic and weight settings instead of assuming default (inherited) values.
  • Fixed a redundant space after images in ODT generation.
  • Improved the detection of section titles in split-by-page.
  • In automatic Kindle Previewer configuration from the Setup Wizard (Windows only), Jutoh now always adds a Kindle Previewer command but disables it if the default .mobi file association is already Kindle Previewer.
  • Added Jutoh Plus edition with scripting.

v1.52 [03-26-12]

  • Added more metadata to ODT files so PDF files created from the ODT will display the correct author and title in Adobe Digital Editions.
  • Added configuration option "Use outline levels" which generates outline information in ODT files if specified in heading styles. This is used by OpenOffice.org and LibreOffice to export PDFs with tables of contents apppearing on the left-hand pane of Adobe Digital Editions.
  • Added configuration option "Convert horizontal bar to em dash" which converts Unicode 8213 to 8212 and adds non-breaking spans, to emulate the horizontal bar unsupported by ADE and some other Epub viewers. This is important for correct Spanish punctuation.
  • Added a setting in the Project Properties Options page to specify the HTML file extension.
  • The automatically-generated title page can now use string tables to tailor its content.
  • Table of contents generation now ignores blank titles. Blank titles caused the NCX to be unavailable on Kindle.
  • Fixed toolbar customisation context menu broken in 1.51.

v1.50 [03-15-12]

  • Added "Orientation lock" configuration option to lock orientation for Kindle KF8 and iBooks Epub.
  • Fixed a bug whereby images could not have their properties edited.
  • Fixed a bug that shrank text within a list due to the application of two em font sizes.
  • Now outputs custom CSS for character styles even if the original definition contains a font size (Jutoh normally uses an inline style to work around multiplying two em sizes together).
  • Added recognition of the page-break-before CSS attribute.
  • Jutoh now wraps the title of the document in Project Preferences/Document so long titles don't distort the dialog.
  • Changed the Epub configuration defaults so that removing font style names from the CSS (recommended for iBooks) doesn't require so many option tweaks.

v1.48 [02-03-12]

  • Added error checking for bad links in the navigation map, with a suggestion to regenerate the contents.
  • Fixed a hang when generating unique identifiers for images in HTML output.

v1.45 [01-25-12]

  • Fixed a problem in document style cleanup whereby URLs were used in automatic styles.
  • Fixed a crash in bookmark collation during page link editing and TOC regeneration.

v1.43 [01-06-12]

  • Index, table of contents and endnotes pages now have their names changed if indicated by the user preferences and string table values.
  • When importing from ODT, character styles with no significant attributes are eliminated.
  • Fixed a bug in HTML generation when generating a list item that contains a heading style.
  • Fixed lack of paragraph style when importing images with paragraph anchor type from ODT.
  • Fixed batch build so it uses the correct configuration for all aspects of a build, including table of contents generation, fixing potential link errors.
  • String replacements are now done for URLs as well as content text (for example, "http://%URL%" in an ODT file).
  • Page breaks are recognised in ODT files for styles that inherit from styles with page breaks, fixing lack of splitting for some page breaks.
  • Added "Visible URLs" configuration option, so the generated ebook can show the URL (useful for printable formats). This option is switched on by default for new OpenDocument configurations.
  • Added "Use heading text size" to allow disabling of text size within headings.
  • Mobipocket generation now uses point sizes for headings to work around a size bug in Kindle when using em.
  • Fixed search in source viewer.
  • Fixed bad OPF id syntax when a media file contains brackets.
  • Fixed overlarge Audio File Generation dialog when titles are long, and added Check All and Clear All buttons.
  • Fixed a crash bug when registering from the Setup Wizard on running for the first time.

v1.42 [12-24-11]

  • After importing from ODT, sets any missing facename or point size attributes in the style sheet to avoid Jutoh errors when compiling.
  • Fixed an ebook file creation problem when periods are in the path.
  • Fixed a crash on startup if tips were shown, on Mac OS X with accessibility switched on.

v1.39 [11-11-11]

  • Worked around a problem with missing hanging indents in Mobipocket by not specifying a left indent if the text indent is negative.
  • Added "Use relative dimensions" configuration property, on by default; switch this off for Mobipocket generation to get more accurate results for margins and spacing. This is off by default in new configurations.

  • Fixed a bug in the style control in the Edit Link dialog (it wasn't initialised with styles if editing an exising link).

  • The Index tab in Project Properties now incorporates an editor for index entries. You can edit entry text, reorder items, and remove items.

  • Clicking on a linked image whose properties have been edited now shows the appropriate URL, bookmark or page link dialog instead of the image properties. Image properties can be edited as usual with the Properties context menu command.
  • Added a new font document type for font embedding; also a media types property page.
