Calligra Author helps you develop your eBook document from concept to completion


Why "Author", when we already have "Words"?

Words is a multi-purpose tool, but authors tell us that writing a novel or textbooks needs some specialised tools. Author is designed to meet those specialised needs.

Planning

Writing

  • Word-count in the status bar
Statistics-in-statusbar.png
  • Distraction free mode
Dan Leinir Turthra Jensen writes distraction-free

Reviewing

  • Annotations (Notes) - you can select passages and add annotations. Editors and reviewers can add comments to the annotations.
  • Export to DOCX format is available.

Publishing

Epub validation is in both Words and Author

Export concentrates on EPUB2, the standard used in many publishing houses, and MOBI, the format used for Amazon Kindle devices.

Future developments

Some planned scene separators

Planned developments include:

  • Export to EPUB3 (already progressing)
  • A navigation docker
  • A range of section separators
  • Autocompletion
  • Wiki export and import
  • Import of styles from an existing document.

To learn more of these plans, read [Calligra Author - The Next Step]
