Hi all,

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

the current release is 1.1.28

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!

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...
