Extra texture!

I’ve made a couple of changes to Textise recently. The first one is the addition of optional textures. This feature allows you to view text-only content on a background of your choice. In the screenshot, we’re viewing a BBC news article in MV Boli font on manuscript paper. Quite Olde Worlde, I’m sure you’ll agree.

You can choose a background from the new drop-down list on the Textise Options Page. Most of the ones I’ve uploaded so far are rubbish, though! The manuscript’s good but I’ll have to replace the others when I can find some better (and free) alternatives.

The other change I’ve made is to replace paragraph tags – which were previously deleted – with DIV tags followed by a line break. This helps retain bookmarks contained in paragraph tags and also breaks the text up the way the original author formatted it.

Just a reminder: if you haven’t already, please fill in the Textise Poll. Thanks!
