[bksvol-discuss] Re: Editing with BNPK


Tracy:
Ran into the same problem as you last night. What I finally did was use "save as" on computer and change to a doc file. Opened beautifully on the BN. Wondering if some of the files now are somehow being made into a later RTF file for a later Word. (Purely a non-techie thought process, smiles) However, changing to a doc file opened it beautifully in my BN, and hubby says no formatting will be lost when I change it back. By the way, I have Word 2003 so I imagine Word must be about to 2009 or something by now! (smiles)

I do remember Shelley wrote an email about how she does it, but for the life of me I can't find it. Shelley, would you please explain your method of proofing with the BN again. I know you took it from an RTF to a Keyword and back, but when I tried to do it the file corrupted. One of the reasons to have a backup file! (smiles).

Thanks Regina.  Very helpful.  I'll make a file copy, then do some
experiments.

When you enter on the book name use space with X or enter with X and you
will, as you repeat the command repeatedly, see the types of different
files
you might need.  When you see .doc just enter.  By the way, hope you have
a
braille keyboard and not a qwerty or ignore this is the word and sorry for
cluttering up your day.  Hope it helps, though, and hope you can open in
Word.  Sometimes those BN files are a real bear!

Hi Debby.
That sounds like a good guess.  I don't know how to make the BN save as
a
.doc file, though.  If anyone does, please let me know the trick.

Hi Tracy!

I don't have a BrailleNote, so I can't say specifically, but I'll take
a
guess based on an experience I have.

I scan with OpenBook 7.  Although I can save the ark file directly as
an
RTF, I don't, because MS Word doesn't like it.  I get some kind of
error
that I can't remember what it is, because it's been about two years
since
I
tried that.  I must save as a doc file first while still in
OpenBook.  OpenBook's version of a Word document is Word version 6, 7,
and
8, I think, so that's why Word 2003 doesn't like the RTF from
OpenBook.  Then I can open the doc file in Word by just hitting enter
on
it, and, whether I leave it as is and change it by saving as an RTF or
first changing it to a Word 2003 doc file and then to an RTF, all is
well.  I wanted to experiment both ways when I first discovered the
problem.  Perhaps there is something with the BrailleNote file that is
similar.

 Klooge! But at least I have my work.
I'd still like to know why Word won't open the file directly, though.
