For those who haven’t discovered it yet, Amazon has created a new font called Bookerly. For those looking to use it, I will not post a link, but I will say that someone has put them online.
Due to a bug in ether IOS or OSX Pages handling of the font Times New Roman, I have spent over an hour editing my manuscript on a per character bases. As I posted yesterday I had a bug with Speech marks/quotation marks. I have spent all morning replacing every single mark in the document and reset the to 66 & 99 style marks.
This will sort out the bugs for the epub and pdf versions but I will have to export to html or to scrivener to create the mobi/kindle version.
Why didn’t I use scriv to start?
It’s too big, to unwieldy and don’t have an ipad version that will work in sinc.
I need a holiday … Oh wait I am !
While have someone point out bugs in the first edit draft of my book I have come across a strange font bug.
In the text above, you will notice that two different set of speech/quote marks are in use. I’m not sure what happening and I want it to stop. I am trying to write a book in the old font style using the 66/99 style marks instead of the ”” marks.
Has anyone out there got enough experience on how to fix this is OSX 10.9.2 and Pages 5.2 (2013/14) version.
