I just upgraded from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199 and now compiling adds an extra newline at the end of each of my text documents. What bug was this intended to fix, and how can I disable it?
I do note that it fixed the issue I had in the previous version where I needed to add a newline to my final text document in order for the formatting to be applied to it, but now I have extra newlines between my documents. That is, I used to have:
and now I have
(where # is my separator character between text documents).
Also, since I have page breaks before new chapters, in some places the generated rtf has a full blank page (because the newline ran onto the next page, and then the page break caused it to jump to the page after that).
We’re trying to get an update that resolves this out shortly.
Lilith, the issue with the blank spaces being added occurs during the compile phase, so I doubt it’s related to whatever you’re seeing with space being removed during a merge. Is there any special formatting (including tables or images) in the documents that merge without a blank line added? Did you use different steps to merge them compared to the others? If you can find a reproducible case of this, please let us know!
Lilith–ah, ok, if it was in compile, that’s probably related then. Was the document marked to compile “as-is”? In those, the extra space isn’t getting added before the separators as is happening generally, but this is affecting the “empty line” separator such that it acts as a single return. That should be fixed along with the problem of the extra line being added in the others for the update Lee is working on.
Oops, belated response…We’re really very close now. Really. It’s been unfortunately one of those cases of “fixing A breaks B”, so we’ve had to keep going round and round re-fixing things and testing to make sure we didn’t accidentally blow up something else. I think we’re on the final run now though so fingers crossed we’ll have 1.5.4 pushed out by the end of next week.
