    I reported this yesterday in the R62 bug forum but I don't want it to get lost! So I am posting it here too.

    Here is the link:

    https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/f...-crafted-from-imported-text-are-hosed.151694/

    Bottom Line - I ran tests on 2/25 and text is definitely missing even when doing a new import. Additionally, the missing characters are being counted against the 8000 character limit. Only pages 1-3 are correct. Pages 4-5 seem to be missing.

    Title: My books are hosed
    Reproduction Rate: 100%
    Blocker? No

    Details: The books I have been selling for nearly 2 years are hosed up. I do an import of about 7600 characters on average and have the books laid out and colored as I prefer them. Pages 1-3 import alright. Pages 4-5 seem NOT to import. So all the books I have in-game are missing HUGE amounts of text. For example here is a test I ran. This is the missing text that I used for my test and the thing is, the characters show up in the count! 5742/8000.:

    [C7AA06]ꭍꭍ♦=♦=♦=♦ [612A04]But I Have Known [ECD796].[C7AA06]♦=♦=♦=♦ꭍꭍ[612A04]
    The poet’s write of love sublime,
    Of love that spans the arch of time.
    Intrinsic ardor none can chart,
    Because it’s graven in one’s heart.
    But I've received such inmost love,
    A precious gift sent from above.
    Love so selfless, replete with light,
    It furnished hope through darkest night.
    O mother’s love, I’ll cherish you,
    Unwavering, loyal, strong and true.
    Gentleness dwells in your embrace,
    And Béma blessed me with your grace.
    Though many quest in search of love,
    The wee bairns know what I speak of.
    [C7AA06]ꭍꭍ♦=♦=♦=♦ [612A04]But I Have Known [ECD796].[C7AA06]♦=♦=♦=♦ꭍꭍ[612A04]
    The poet’s write of love sublime,
    Of love that spans the arch of time.
    Intrinsic ardor none can chart,
    Because it’s graven in one’s heart.
    But I've received such inmost love,
    A precious gift sent from above.
    Love so selfless, replete with light,
    It furnished hope through darkest night.
    O mother’s love, I’ll cherish you,
    Unwavering, loyal, strong and true.
    Gentleness dwells in your embrace,

    ---> Bottom line - I cannot fix this - it's a huge bug with the import side of books.

    Steps to Reproduce: Import a large amount of characters and you will see the missing text.

    As a PS - my books are NOT conducive to doing manually as I use all kinds of HTML colors and special formatting to get the books to be more artful. Like many authors in the game, I put a LOT of work into them and sure would like to see this fixed sooner rather than later. Thank you.

    This has been fixed internally. The fix will be released in an upcoming patch this week.

    Thanks for the report!
