[bksvol-discuss] Re: a book with multiple column pages

Hi Evan,
Yes, that should be correct. You can often make those extra ones go away by lengthening the printed page to something like 20 inches verses the standard 11.


Yeah, OB does something right, page breaks!

Thanks, Jake. I presume then that when Word tells me, for example, that there are 650 pages, say, at the end of a book, instead of the 525 page breaks OB put in that only the 525 page breaks will show up in the file I submited to Bookshare? I hope that's what you are saying.

Hi Evan,
There in reality is no such thing as a soft or hard page break. Either there is a page break, or there is not one. What people often term soft breaks are when the word processor indicates a page change because there is too much text between page breaks to fit within the constraints of the printed page. There is no character stored in the file to indicate this "soft" break, because it depends purely on your program as to whether it wants to remain within the boundaries of the printed page.


At the top of some books in the collection, it mentions that the book was repaginated.

Yes, I know that Word puts in these "soft" page breaks. I noticed them when I checked the number of pages Word told me were in the file of a book I was validating versus the number of hard page breaks, and the former was substantially larger. But will the Bookshare processing put in page breaks if it sees these really long pages, even if there are page breaks in the original, just farther apart than is usual? If not, then everything's cool. If it does, then something needs to be done with the numbering to keep things straight.

Thanks.

Hi Cindy,
That problem of text no longer fitting on the page is a result of the
printer settings of the person looking at the file. You can change your
paper length and that problem goes away, and also I think those extra page
breaks are soft, not hard, breaks.
