Hi guys,

not really sure if this is the right section of the forum. Feel free to point me to a better one.

I am currently writing a non-fiction book/ebook on App Marketing. To explain my concepts I want to include a lot of pictures, graphics, diagrams, etc.
So far I´ve used MS Word for writing. To include the graphics and export the manuscript to the common ebook-formats, I believe I need another software.
I was thinking about Scrivener, but after I did some research, I believe it´s not a good match, cause the handling of graphics is rather poor.
Can anyone point me to alternative programs? Happy for any hint. Thanks for your efforts.

Best
Vaughn

Hi Vaughn

Try using OpenOffice. Its the same suite as Microsoft but free. In there, they have Writer, which is the equivalent of MSWord. They have the option to save your work as a PDF, which is probably the most popular format for Ebooks.

Hope this helps!

Hi Sampson,
thanks for your response. Saving PDFs is possible with MS Word as well. I was more thinking of formats like .epub or .azw (that´s the Kindle-format). These are responsive and provide a much better user experience on various devices.

Cheers
Vaughn
