Ppoem formatting advice..[edit]

PPoem was NOT designed to do this:- Page:The_Fauna_of_British_India,_including_Ceylon_and_Burma_(Birds_Vol_1).djvu/174

So I was wondering if you had some suggestions? My thought is that it's effectively a table.

Alternatively would it be possible to tweak the the poem based code into something for generating key-lists like this? ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 20:50, 24 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@ShakespeareFan00: That looks like a table with a whole lot of {{gap}} for indentation to me. Definitely not something {{ppoem}} should be used for! Two columns, and set {{ts|hi}} on the cells in the left column. The nesting is too deep to sensibly use padding (e.g. {{ts|pl1}}, {{ts|pl2}}, etc.) for the indentation, otherwise that would have been a better option (fixing the hanging indent, which will otherwise be imperfect when using {{gap}}). Hmm, actually, the deepest indentation here is just 9 levels so making pl1–pl9 is an option, if a slightly hacky one. It just isn't suitable for arbitrarily deep indentation.

Page scans[edit]

When I need to examine very small details I click on the scan and it gets larger which is great. However, recently it does not go back to the normal size no matter what I do. I am sending a link to the page but it happens on all of the scans.

The following is me trying to get help:

When i zoom in on scan it gets larger and usually returns to normal. For some reason it does not return to normal. Even when I restart Wikisource. Daytrivia (talk) 05:51, 22 January 2023 (UTC)

Daytrivia: Press the button above the page with the magnifying glass and the 0 inside; that returns the image to the original size. For some reason, the zoom now remains across pages; this issue has not yet been fixed (or maybe even reported?). TE(æ)A,ea. (talk) 15:53, 22 January 2023 (UTC)

This is not a "bug", but a "feature". It was mentioned in last week's Tech News. Basically, the assumption (by whom I don't know) is that if you need to change the zoom on one page for an Index: you'll need that zoom level for all pages associated with that Index. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 04:54, 23 January 2023 (UTC)

Inductiveload, apparently, led the change. TE(æ)A,ea. (talk) 16:17, 23 January 2023 (UTC)

I do not see a magnifying glass and the 0 inside. When I use Microsoft Edge I don't have the problem but doesn't work any more with Chrome.Daytrivia (talk) 10:27, 25 January 2023 (UTC) Not working in Microsoft Edge now. This very discouraging.

easy distinguishing of auto vs. manual categorisation?[edit]

Is there a system methodology to tell whether a category has been added manually or via WD? Looking to do some cleaning up and wasn't wanting to use brute force if it was unnecessary. Thanks. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:07, 1 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Smart Set duplication?[edit]

I see Index:The Smart Set (Volume 71).djvu but also Index:The Smart Set (Volume 71, Number 3).djvu (1–4), also files. Are these duplicates or are they different series? I haven’t checked for other duplication of volumes vs. issues, but I don’t know how closely involved you were in this import. TE(æ)A,ea. (talk) 04:09, 22 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you[edit]

The new ProofreadPage features are awesome and beyond. I want to thank you and the team, but I lost the talk page link to post, so please pass on my thanks for restoring my ability to proofread as I was used to. Thanks again.

Do you ever get that chance to sleep? — ineuw (talk) 00:59, 8 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
