Under Construction
This is a new page, currently under construction!

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.

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


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

Future developments

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]

Most of the functionality of Author is, or soon will be, available within Words, although less prominently.
