I' ll guide you through this paper by making a basic pattern for you to write single sections of an e-book with LibreOffice Writer. Use and customize this templates for both PDF and EPUB textbooks. What is the point of concentrating on making a single section rather than an overall work?
This is because it is simpler to create and administer separate sections than to work on a simple monumental one. Concentrating on specific sections allows you to concentrate on what you need to type. It is easy to move these sections, and it is less tedious to submit a reviewers a single section than your complete work.
Once you've written a section, you can just put your sections together to release the work. (I'll talk about how to do that below). Unaffected by this approximation - if you would rather type in a separate document, just adjust the procedures described in this part.
It is only important if you intend to make your e-book available as a PDF file. Page setup means that your page is not a load of eye-straining text that runs across the monitor. Choose Format > Page to open the Page Format dialog. Choose Bottom line and click OK. Click the page header, then choose Insert menu > Field > Page Number.
Just like the templates themselves, the templates ensure a uniform appearance of your document. LibreOffice's default templates contain a number of different working templates to work with. Use F11 to open the Stiles and Formattings dialog. Right click on a theme and choose Change to modify it.
These are the most important style I use in every textbook I write: You can also create or change enumeration and number listing style, quotation marks, sample codes, numbers, etc., according to the kind of books you have. Choose File menu > File > Safe As. Choose ODF Text Document Template (.ott) from the format selection in the File menu.
In this way, the system stores the original file as a reference, which you can quickly call up again later. It is best to store it in your LibraryOffice style sheets directory. When you begin to write, create a directory on your computer where all the books you have saved - chapter, pictures, memos, etc. - are stored.
If you are finished writing, start LibreOffice Writer and choose File > New > Templates. Then, choose your preset from the dropdown menu and click Open. Then, under a meaningful name, backup the file. Prevent convention like section 1 and section 2 at a certain point, you might choose to mix your sections, and it can be bewildering when you try to administer these sections.
However, you can insert numbers of sections, such as section 1 or section 1, into the name. It' simpler to re-name a document like this if you rearrange the sections of your text. If that'?s out of the way, get started on your typing. Keep in mind to use the style in the style sheet to reformat the text - that's why you made the style sheet, right?
When you have completed a series of sections and are willing to release them, create a source file. Imagine a source file as a containment for the chapter you wrote.
This will create a respectable layout, but you might want to optimise it. Choose File > Export as pdf and adjust the preferences in the dialog box Preferences. For more information, see the LibreOffice Writer document. To create an EPOB instead of or in conjunction with a PDO, please download the Writer2EPUB expansion.
This is a naked model we have made here, but you can use it for a basic textbook or as a point of departure for creating a more sophisticated model. One way or another, this pattern will quickly get you to write and publish your e-book.
