Hello, could someone please tell me how I can have multiple ABBs running? I can see suggestions that it can be done, but I sure can't find how to do it :cry: When I try to launch a new process it just focuses on the one currently building.

simply duplicate the application, and start both and make sure that you use a different project file for each application.

Hmm, two instances running causes it to ignore the maximum part length. The prefs show 3 hours, yet the build summary says it was make only two parts for a length of over 13:30 hours. No matter what I set the maximum length to, the parts remain the same. It works as expected for a single process. Where can I get the source? This should be simple enough to fix.

We haven't been able to duplicate this here with two instances running simultaneously. Our test Project is just shy of 12 hours in length with 17 Chapters. Note that setting the Maximum Part Length in one instance won't directly affect the other because Audiobook Builder's preferences aren't (usually) saved to disk until the application quits. In our test we simply visited the preferences in each instance, changed the Maximum Part Length to 3 hours and made sure the number of Parts in the Finish section changed as expected. In your case I'd make sure you visit the preferences in both instances. It might also help to know that Parts are not cleanly separated at exactly the Maximum Part Length intervals. Instead, they're constructed between the original files/tracks added to your Project. That means if you have a Project with 4 5-hour files and a Maximum Part Length setting of 3 hours you will get 4 5-hour Parts, separated at the points between each of the original 5-hour files.
