Writer2ePub new releases

Hi all,

in this thread I will post the announcements for new W2E releases!

the current release is 1.1.10



Writer2ePub is an OpenOffice.org extension that creates an ePub file from any document openable by the OOo Word Processor.
Just simply one click, you can obtain a well formatted, easy readable ePub file from almost any document.

What is Writer2ePub?
W2E is an ePub creator. Simply write your document with the OOo Word Processor and W2E will make an ePub file using the best traditional typographic rules, by applying a predefined style sheet (CSS). If you need a good ePub document and you can use the OOo Writer Word Processor, W2E is your tool.

What Writer2ePub is not?
W2E is not a simple file converter. It does not just convert an existing document to ePub. If you need to obtain a pure wysiwyg ePub file, W2E is not for you. Please look at Calibre or other OOo extensions available on the Internet to do this kind of jobs.
Neither is W2E an ePub editor, please look at Sigil or other similar product if you need to edit and modify an existing ePub.

Who can use Writer2ePub?
W2E is intended for occasional users and professional use. The occasional user can create an high quality epub without worrying about the source document quality, while professional can create an easy editable, well structured and valid ePub file.

Installation
Just double click on the dowloaded file, it will install or replace the old W2E version.
Otherwise, please open the Extension Manager from the Tools menu and add the extension from there.
Once installed, on opening a new writer document you will find a small toolbar with three green icons.

Use
Simply press the first icon, and an ePub will be created in the same folder of the original file.
The icon with the blue mark is useful to add or edit the metadata information (title, author and so on).
The last icon with the red mark is to modify the preference. In a normal use you don't need to modify these settings.

Disclaimer:
Writer2ePub is a software tool written by non-professional programmers.
The author and all the collaborators are not responsible in any way for direct or indirect damages caused by W2E to your data, your software, your hard disk, your computer, your person, your home, your town, your country, your planet or your universe.
Please use it carefully and at your own risk!

Luke

The download works, but...

On your website doesn't mention the version number, so I thought it was an old version. I'm sorry.

You should mention the version number.

I ran into a problem with 1.1.10 so I check here and saw that you have a new version. I installed it but now I can not edit the CSS macro. I need to tweak the style sheet a bit. Not a Macro person so any suggestions as to why I'm not allowed to edit would be helpful..

Thank you...

John..

Found the problem..

When you install an extension is ask if you want it "just for me" or for others as well (multi-user). I had selected the latter and that locked it for editing.

Back in shape again..

Thank you very much, great applet!

BTW ask whether the "MyBookCleaner" is the successor to "MyTXTcleaner" or doing something else? On Your site no wider description.

Hi Anavim,

MyBookCleaner is an extension I create for myself and I use it to correct a scanned book.
More of the options are useful only in Italian, like replacing E' with È, other are usable everywhere, like removing spaces at the beginning or at the end of the paragraphs.

I plan to improve it, as soon as I will find some spare time…

Thank you for the info.
Your "MyTXTcleaner" is also useful for the correction of scanned and converted books

Writer2epub is very clever and useful tool! For my uses, in many cases better than Calibre.
If you manage to earn some extra functionality: font embedding - it will be for many people a great handy tool.

I greet and thank you again for this plugin !

Thanks to you, Anavim!

In the future W2E will embed the fonts as an option, but now I'm working to redesign the extension.

I wish to add the capability to use multiple CSS (style sheet) instead of the one W2E imposes to the user.
Moreover, W2E will manage custom CSS, with fonts and personal styles, and there will be a wisiwig editor for styles.
