Extra spaceEdit

When I reviewed this I removed a bunch of extra spaces. You might want to look at Help:Beginner's_guide_to_typography, if you have an questions you can ask on my talk page or at Wikisource:Scriptorium. Looks like your are doing a great job on your project :) JeepdaySock (AKA, Jeepday) 16:06, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the guidance (and compliment). I've gone through the guide more thoroughly now, and am still trying to pick up how you experienced scribes do things, so the correction is much appreciated too. :D --xensyriaT 17:20, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

OCR gadgetEdit

Have you seen the OCR gadget that, when activated, appears in the toolbar in Page: ns? It works pretty well these days. — billinghurst sDrewth 05:02, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

Thanks @Billinghurst: Samwilson did mention it when he fixed this page for me. I thought it just ripped the OCR layer from the DJVU file, but yes this is much better than whatever Internet Archive seems to be using! It does seem to add ligatures (e.g. fi, fl, etc.) and fancy apostrophes/quotations marks though... What would be the best way to fix this? Phabricator? --YodinT 11:50, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
Hmm, quirky, I have not had that issue before. One-offs, please just fix. If you have a lot to do, then you canlet it do its thing, and get someone to run a bot through to cleanup via asking at Wikisource:Bot requests. OR, you can use the m:TemplateScript which is a local gadget, and utilise some regex scripts to do these cleanups. OU will see that I have a series of scripts to do this sort of legwork in User:Billinghurst/common.js. No perfect way, it comes down to preference and balance. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:14, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
Ok, thanks! --YodinT 12:17, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

{{Img float|polygon=…}}Edit

Hello. I am impressed by this new approach. You might wish to note in the documentation that this now completely supplants the {{flow under}} family of templates…? 09:48, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

I hope it's more useful or easier in some situations, but I'm definitely not aiming to supplant anything! What would greatly help both is a proofreading wiki gadget that would let editors visually get the dimensions for these polygons (or {{flow under}}), and then improving coverage of these templates (including {{overfloat image}}, etc.) on the help pages. I agree adding links on the two templates' doc pages could be a good idea in the meantime. And thanks for the encouragement! --YodinT 10:48, 25 May 2019 (UTC)


Can you take a look at this as well?

It's a pain to get the side-titles to play nicely with drop initials and other templates that float, A third contributor to take a look would be appreciated. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 10:30, 31 May 2019 (UTC)

Specifically 5d and 5e here - Page:Test_page#Testing_/s_/e_version_(5e)_with_inline_at_start,_layout_specified_and_a_drop_initial_(I_said_let's_have_some_insanse_test_case!) ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 10:30, 31 May 2019 (UTC)
I see what you mean! I'll take a look over the weekend. :) --YodinT 21:09, 31 May 2019 (UTC)
@ShakespeareFan00: I haven't had any luck with this – are there any cases "in the wild" that need solving yet? --YodinT 23:23, 2 June 2019 (UTC)
Check what it links to, I think there's only 3 Pages: that use this Module at the moment. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 08:27, 3 June 2019 (UTC)
