this is the only lacking feature that make me use Word. It is about time that this be fixed or added to AWP. It is important to be able to capture HTML from a browser and paste it into AWP. Please elevate this request.

eBook from multiple files

It would be nice if I could make a single ePub book from multiple source files. It would be ok if they all needed to have the same template (CSS data). The idea is just to mange a book using independent files for each chapter.

Sorry for my explanation. It was a little more complicated than I thought. The problem seems to be related to having line numbers on the bottom of the page.

paragraph spacing at bottom of page.

The program forces the last line of a paragraph onto the next line under some conditions. This, I believe, is a bug. Here is how to reproduce it. 1. Turn off widows/orphans 2. set a paragraph settings with approximately one line after the paragraph, say 12 pts. This is a normal way to use the word p...

The old tool bars takes up 2 rows above the text area. The new tool bars takes up 3 rows above the text area. To me this seems ok. I like the collective columns idea with groupings. However, the toolbars of today are customizable as to what you display. I suspect the new ones will be also. If you re...

Hmm, did it at least recognize that those words were spelled correctly? I don't think it has enough information to correct spelling. Perhaps restarting Atlantis would help.

As a workaround you can try just copying the file (one word per line I assume) into your personal dictionary called userdicen.tlx located in your documents\Atlantis\Spellcheck folder. I have no idea what this would do to the performance.

Paste and convert some HTML codes

Most of the new Browsers do not support RTF any longer (I think only Microsoft is left). It is important to be able to paste from browsers into AWP without losing some essential tags.

While you can't make a column of numbers you can easily find the line number of every line. Change the view to draft mode and the line number will be shown at the bottom of the screen for wherever the cursor is. Thus you can easily find the line number of any line in the document. Note that space li...

One work around would be to save the table as a txt file. You will find that the results are that each table entry is on a line by itself and the rows are separated with an empty line.

Thank you for the explanation. But the superscript was only a few characters in some of the cells and not the whole paragraph in any of them.

Table spit with lines between tables are strange.

I built a table that spans multiple pages (it is landscape if this matters) The table entries sometimes span the page break so I decided to break the table into two pieces.

Neither mobi or ePub supports tabs. If you used tabs to indent a paragraph or provide visual margins you need to go into styles and set proper values there. They will be converted to CSS in the ePub document. What were you using the tabs for? If to build a table then use the new beta table edition. ...

headers

I am happy to report that I just imported a word file with a header that used a one row table with a picture in one cell and text in another and a third empty. It worked perfectly.

One question: Are column and row titles coming? In particular column titles that would repeat on the next page.

Re: Float images

Other word processors can float text around images. This would be a nice addition -- it makes the printed output look more professional -- and it saves paper. I don't know if floating content is allowed for e-books, but it certainly is part of HTML5. It is part of eBooks. In particular ePub permits...

Unfortunately this is not near as robust in an ePub as the simple right/left wrap. Tables tend to have trouble with font size changes and screen size changes in ePub. Particularly near the end of a page.

Don't you have a style called Footnote text? It should have been created the first time you used the footnote command. You can alter that style as you need to. There is also a style called Endnote text. Did you use the footnote command to create your footnotes?
