Convert <tb>, Italic, Bold, and Smallcap (10 min.)

Convert <tb> Thought Break

Menu Txt > Convert <tb> to asterisk break which converts all <tb> to five spaced asterisks in one step.

Convert Italics

Menu Txt > Convert Italics which converts italics markup is replaced with underscores.

Convert bold

Mark bold with = as it is most common. PPCOMP will not throw warnings when comparing with HTML.

  • Select Txt > Convert Bold

Convert SMALL CAPS.

Uppercase selected small-cap, which foofers have changed to <sc>Title-Cased-Text</sc>.

PG guidelines

  • Where only an opening word or phrase of a section is small-capped, it should be left as title case.
  • Some works have whole headings small-cap; some have used small-cap as a means of emphasis. These should be uppercased in the text.

Menu Txt > Manually Convert Small Caps Markup... which opens up a Search and Replace window.

Select preferred change which are leave unchanged, upper case text, or surround text with "+".

Fix ASCII Tables (0-? hr.)

Save to version 21

  • Use Search>Find Next /**/ Block to step through all tabular material.
    • /P for Poems so it keeps indent
    • /F for front matter to center, perhaps not centered in the end
    • /L for unordered list
    • /X no rewrap, no indent
    • Compare to page image; reformat to best convey author intent.
    • For complex tables, use Table Special Effects to reformat.
  • For TOC and TOI
    • Make sure to indent or you violate the rules
    • The point of this is to hint to some future text user to not re-wrap the lines
    • If too wide, wrap to 72 and have following line indented further to making a hanging paragraph

Rewrap and Clear Rewrap Markers (10-30 min.)

Save the file to version 22 if any unsaved changes.

  • Use Tools>Rewrap All. Wait while rewrap completes.
  • Page through entire text, looking for improper indentation. If found, re-open, clicking NO when asked if you want to save the edits. Find and fix broken rewrap markups. Repeat this step.
  • Open Tools>Footnote Fixup...; tidy up footnotes. See this discussion.

Save to version 22.

  • Remove all rewrap markers: see this page.
    • Tools>Clean Up Rewrap Markers

^.{73,} and wrap

    • TOC
    • TN
  • Use Tools>Remove End-of-line Spaces.
  • Indent anything that you don't want re-wrapped in the future
    • Poetry is probably taken care of
    • TOC
    • Title page and other front matter. Just indent two spaces as centering doesn't work in text.
  • Use Tools>Bookloupe and resolve any new issues.

Front Matter (5 min)

Check the title page and other front matter. Indent to look nice and hint to a future text handler to not rewrap.

It is very helpful at finding variations in spelling/hyphenation. If anything is found it will need to be fixed in the HTML version too.
