Hello, I just bought: Gravissimum Educationis: Golden Opportunities in American Catholic Education 50 Years after Vatican II 

https://vyrso.com/product/93458/gravissimum-educationis-golden-opportunities-in-american-catholic-education-50-years-after-vatican-ii 

The formatting for this book is pretty awful - lots of stray spaces, no divisions between sections/chapters, no TOC.  It is not easy to read it like the other books - especially bad considering it costs $33.99.

I am using Verbum 7 as the reader - I am not sure if this has anything to do with it, but I haven't had an issue with other Vyrso books using it.

I am not a Verbum user, so for clarification: You mean the Mac or Windows app, right? That shouldn't be an issue.

Vyrso books are auto converted, "bare bones" ebooks. Sometimes FL is able to reconvert the book with success, but other times, not. If by "TOC," you mean a side "table of contents," those are most often not present in Vyrso edition resources.

Tongue Tied These kind of resources aren't well suited for Vyrso. In some cases, they are here accidentally. In most cases, however, they are here because FL isn't able to work out deals with the publishers to bring them to Logos. The good news: If they do migrate to Logos, you will get the update for free. 

If FL doesn't respond, I'll see if I can hunt someone down. I have tried my contact a few times this week with no response, so he may be out of the office.

Thanks for the reply - yep Verbum is a Windows Desktop App (it is the Catholic Version of Logos).

Not sure if FL will try reformatting this - I understand it is a barebones scan, while A table of contents would be nice, just to have the spacing issues corrected would be helpful to make it more readable.  

Not sure what you meant by these kind of resources aren't well suited for Vyrso - it is an ebook which is what it is for.

I am uploading a screenshot so you can see the spacing I am referring to.

While, yes, I can still read the book - for it being a resource that costs nearly $35, the amount of stray spaces seems a bit unacceptable - and there are some sections where there is an overwhelming amount of them that makes it very difficult to read.

Chris we're looking into why this happened. As we get more info we'll follow up with you--most likely directly.

Chris K. We pushed out an update that fixed the gap between words. 

Thank you for the report. Vyrso resources are automatically converted and this bug report helped us update the Vyrso converter so any future resource with source files formatted like this one will be converted with proper word spacing.
