Ok as the title says, since the intro of SA and the EC client books have NEVER worked properly. I have spent the last 3 days trying to write about 12 pages into a book and have tossed the whole lot into the garbage in frustration. I want to be able to just copy/paste from a word/text doc (instructions) or an excel doc (auction list) into a book so it can then be inscribed/copied and placed on my steward. I want it to be able to be read in both the EC and Classic clients by any player. In 2d you can copy paste and the text goes over the pages nicely, and it is one step, so as long as your text doesn't exceed the number of pages in the book it copies fine from any sort of document, multiple pages, all nicely spaced with words wrapping as they should. (at least it used to, I don't have the classic client installed any more but I assume it still works fine in that client. I used to prepare my auction lists in excel, then copy and paste the list , generally 30 items, into my book in one go, then copy and paste the auction house rules of etiquette into the back of the book, again in one go, from a word doc. The total was generally between 12 and 16 pages in a 20 page book, fine.) In the EC however, you copy your text from a doc and it will only paste ONE flipping page of about 12-14 lines and then when you close and open the book it double spaces the lines so that the max lines on the page is about 8-9. The rest of the text goes into the oblivion. Now Ok, I could deal with this by copying the text page by page to fit 8 lines per page, however nooooooo, each time you open and close the book it doesn't word wrap so yo u end up with te xt like this in your sil ly book It looks fine when you originally copy it in but then does the above. So then you have to edit it by putting an enter at the cut off text and deleting the spaces til it lines up, open and close, or flip pages and return, and then do the second line as each line you 'fix' then messes up the positioning of the line under it. So basically you need to fix each 8 lines one at a time from top down opening/closing or flipping pages in the book each line. To add insult to injury, you finally get it done, flip through to make sure it all looks ok, then close your book, come back later after logging out to find that page 2 now appears on page 2 and page 4. Or pages 6 & 7 now appear on pages 6 & 7 and 8 & 9 and pages 8 & 9 have totally disappeared. Or all manor of combinations of errors in the format, generally with pages over written or totally missing. Of course you can't delete a page in the middle of anything and expect the following pages to move forward either. What it does then is just duplicates the stuff on the proceeding pages. Never have I had a lesson in frustration as the simple task of putting text in a UO book has resulted in. When is this EVER going to get fixed?
