rich text format in one large file
« on: March 30, 2006, 09:41:04 PM »
can someone please help me? I hope this is the right forum. my typesetter is complaining because I sent her a 290 page document in rich text format, and she said they were 290 single files. she wants me to send that document, (manuscript), in one large file. How do I do that? I have windows xp. I think she has a macintosh. any advice would be greatly appreciated.   :-?

I don't have a clue but try this:

Open the .rtf file with Wordpad then save the file in .txt format.

Good luck

Eek - don't do that!  Your paragraph breaks will be completely screwed up, and any formatting you want to retain (advisory to your typesetter) will be lost.

Please advise: what program are you composing your document in?  What program is your typesetter using?

As an aside to this - If you regularly move data between a Windows and a MAC box, [highlight]Stuffit[/highlight], the dé facto MAC archiver, is available in Win32 flavour.

I think Rob wanted to know what actual programs were used on both machines.

    Well, that's one approach....  ::)
    Please post as much information about your computer, operating system, and problem as possible, what happened prior to problems, etc. Too much info is OK, too little is pointless! Don't just say "My computer doesn't work. What's wrong?"
