Export to format loses formatting
« on: January 25, 2011, 02:43:23 AM »
I have just signed up for a 7 day trial of the software with a view to purchasing in a week...

Early impressions are that the software is very good at spinning but I am unable to get my articles out in a useful format.

I have spun my article and have all the word replacements in place but when I click on the option to export to format it exports the article but the structure of the article is lost; all sentences all deleted, paragraphs gone etc, I end up with one long continuous file of text which is of little use.

I need to be able to export the articles with the spun options in place but also retain 'proper' formatting so that I can use these articles with my article submission tools.

I am missing something or does the program not offer this?

I am not exactly sure what you mean when you say "export to format". Would the basic tutorials help? http://www.getmemotivated.co.uk/blog_thebest_tutorials/?p=6

otherwise, could you explain a bit more about the problem please?

there isn't anything else to post about the topic. I try and spun articles using the bulk spinner. It gives me the error message I posted previously and doesn't work. Not sure what I can add to that

Are you actually using TBS2? This is the original and most people are now on TBS3. When you say "export to format, do you mean formatted for different spinners?

I am using the latest version, 3.421

When I say export the articles I mean I need to be able to create some spun articles which I am unable to do.

I click bulk spin, I select the folder of text, I select use Better setting and then press go. About 30 seconds later it comes up with the error message, I press ok, it moves on to the next file and the error message is repeated. The result being I am not able to spin any articles

The new thread you started is here, http://jlforums.com/tbs-version-3-beta/can't-bulk-spin/msg55703/#msg55703
I will have a look at this and see if I can get it to work but I don't generally bulk spin, so will take a bit of time to check
