Hey Farling,

The program is running the PDF output, but it's taking quite a while. The program shows as non-responsive in Task Manager. Any ideas?

EDIT: Also, v18 is showing a 404.

The link for 1.18 is now working properly.

I've found that a 900MB RWoutput file takes about 20 seconds to load, and then another 25 seconds to generate XHTML files.

I think there is still some work to do on the direct PDF conversion button. I might remove it in the future. You can quite easily create an XHTML, load it into word (or possibly even a browser) and then print to PDF.

V1.19 has been released

This version has disabled the PDF and PRINT buttons since they don't actually appear to be working on any decent sized realm.

The windows explorer hooks have been changed to load RWOUTPUT files, not RWEXPORT files.

Various code improvements have been made to try and speed up the process. 8 hours of testing managed to reduce a 20 second load time to 19.1 seconds; and 25 seconds of HTML generation time down to 24 seconds. This was for a RWOUTPUT file that is 900MB in size. (I'm not impressed with the minimal speed improvements).

Calling all you LAYOUT ARTISTS (or CSS specialists).

Has anyone experimented with changing the CSS that is generated by this tool?

Has anyone produced a better description of each of the CSS-able elements to make the output prettier?

If so, would you like to share them? Either to replace the default, or to provide as a list of "alternative" styles.

Are you performing a "Compact Output" from Realm Works? If so, it should generate a file with the file extension ".rwoutput" (not ".rwexport").
Wow, sorry for not responding to this! I thought I was signed up for email notifications of replies, but I guess not. I apologise for ignoring you.

I suspect you were right about me trying to use .rwexport rather than .rwoutput for a file. I had to search for my RW export this time, so I happen to know it was the only .rwoutput file on my computer. Sounds like I just stuffed up the first time >3>;

Whether it was my fault or an actual bug, the index is A-okay on this version. Thanks for your hard work!
