Which is the best Linux software to write a work? I' d like to be able to sort the text into bars, add pictures, page numbers and so on.
I' d suggest to separate the writing problem from the designing and laying out. As I was writing a textbook, we used Markdown mark-up and all our favourite text writers. If it was the right moment to make something that we could either email to our journalist or proofread, it was simple to make an appealing HTML-edition.
Use your preferred text editors for writing. Now if I were writing a text I would use sublime text in "distraction-free mode". When designing pages, the main Scribus. Bissex is right when it comes to separate writing (and revision of texts) from layouts and presentations. Markdown is recommended, the program can be converted to many different file-format.
I' d make a reservation: There are different Markdown dialogues with different functions: choose your own versions, according to what you need in your game. I' ve got a faint notion that there is now a Markdown variation with functions for textbooks. There are enough functions to make a really print-ready work, incl. indexing, etc., etc.
There' s an awesome bookwriting application named Scrivener that has an unsuported, free (as in beer) Linux release. When you look up HTMLbook, you will find a link to the O'Reilly specification for an ebook/paper copy reference they are depressing. There' s also an on-line journalist they seem to use for some of their work.
Also it has a web-based authoring interface that looks like.... well, it looks like someone who wrote a bunch of coding in either platkr or juFiddle would be designing a bookmaking utility. It'?s not my favourite, but it works. After all, if I have a little more experience and know-how, I plan to build a web application that contains what *me* is critical to a good bookmaking application.
