Obi: Known Limitations

Obi: Known Limitations

Obi version 5.0 has few known limitations. These limitations may be removed in future releases.

Pipeline-lite does not work with non western characters in file path

Pipeline-lite is not able to operate if there are non western characters in path of the file. It is recommended to keep non western characters away from the file paths on which Pipeline-lite needs to work. This means, DAISY 3 export folder and DAISY 2.02 export folder have to be placed at a location so that there are no non western characters in its path. This only affects validation, mp3 encoding and fileset renaming process and does not hinder normal operations of book authoring.

EPUB 3 export and import does not support skippable structures yet

The skippable structures like footnotes, sidebars, notes etc. are yet not supported by EPUB 3 export & import. The support will be added as the EPUB 3 navigable audio-only guidelines will progress.

Error messages are not so user friendly

Error messages in message boxes are displayed when some invalid operation is done. These messages are not so user friendly, especially the exception messages. These will be replaced with more user friendly text in future.
