If you go to a page, it will inform you, but otherwise not. Does anyone have a way to find blank pages? Second problem with K1000 is it's problem with n-dashes. It occasionally drops them for no apparent reason. You will find "greatgreatgreatgreatgrandchildren", or "tshirt", or "scottfree". I'm sure there are others. M-dashes don't seem to be fair game. If I've mentioned this previously, appologies. I'm on puppy nightshift and my memory's a bit tattered. She's now 9 weeks old and things have improved considerably. But we're not all the way there, yet, and I'm still behind on sleep. ----- Original Message ----- From: Kaitlyn Hill To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Wednesday, September 28, 2005 12:33 AM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Converting KES to RTF There was a discussion here recently on K1000 taking out blank pages when converting to RTF. When validating books where you have to add back blank pages to keep the page numbers running correctly. On a newly added blank page simply ad the page number and a header or some type of text. K1000 will not consider it blank.
