I have a HTML file of Facebook messages that is taking PS ages to apply my style. It just seems stuck. I have uploaded the file to my onedrive ( https://1drv.ms/u/s!Ap7yFWW-HrgenUhsBIhl0_my2ByL ) and wondered if someone can try to format for me please.
FWIW – Mew 11.04.00

What Style suite are you using? Are you selecting it or is it associated with an extension? Is it one that you created yourself?

PS did fine with a very small index.htm file.
Clay – have you been able to try PS with the file I uploaded to my onedrive?November 15, 2016 at 7:08 pm #22437
re: What Style suite are you using?
I ran the configure code formatter……
re: Are you selecting it or is it associated with an extension?
I selected from the Tools dropdown menu

Guess I have not messed with polystyle since win xp. It suffers from wanting to write to the install directory, in program files, which is a no no. I could not configure it and when running against that file it finishes with errors, and I don’t get a formatted version. For some reason it does not see all the examples in the examples directory. Tried copying to another directory and running stand alone to no avail. Don’t have a fix for this one.

What errors did you get? I’d like to see it.
Also do you know if the author of PS is still available?
Or I noticed that in the MEW configuration – it mentions HtmlTidy – is that MEW supported ?
Or is there a html format program that Windows 7+ is ok with?November 17, 2016 at 4:43 pm #22446
The dialog title bar said that the reformat ended with errors, but without a useful error message. Google polystyle. They are still out there. There is a note about installing to a directory outside program files, so I guess they have not updated beyond vista.
Running polystyle standalone (after the copy from the ME install directory) resulted in a “could not read” a registry entry. And the process died.

I did find ( http://www.polystyle.com/contact.jsp ) but it says my email address is not valid. And it’s @gmail.com so I do not know what is going on.
I did find his old postal address at the bottom of the contact page mentioned above, so then I Googled “Matt jones near Miamisburg, OH” and a few hits says that he is a scammer? And several matches on Facebook.
Any help appreciated.
