So you decided to write an eBook and you have a problem now. What program should I use to write?
Honestly, you have many choices. In this article, I discuss some of you.
Two basic types of software can be e-books:
1. Text editing software. These are basic writers such as MS Word, Sun OpenOffice, Corel WordPerfect, and MS Works Word. Originally written for business letters and other similar documents. Initially, it's just a bit more than text editors, which now include full-featured writing tools, including delicacies such as grammar checking, spell checking, and reading scale calculators.
2nd Publishing software. It is software such as Adobe Acrobat and MS Publisher. It grew from the graphics industry. Text editing software helps typing and layout is poor. Publishing software is poor in typing and is strong in layout.
Generally speaking, you'd like to write eBooks with a text processor rather than a publishing program. While publishing programs gives you great flexibility in making eBooks and appearing, they prove to be weak when down their heads. And the writing of the e-book primarily describes typing. In addition, the arrangement of e-books is usually quite simple and good within a word processing capability.
Of course, there are exceptions, such as a picture book for children.
But if you typically write a book, you will focus on helping yourself out of writing.
This means that you want to use a device such as Microsoft Word, Sun's OpenOffice, Corel WordPerfect, or MS Works Word.
These programs are divided into two main groups. The first is a full text editor. These are programs such as Microsoft Word, Sun OpenOffice Writer, and Corel WordPerfect. The second is a reduced functionality tool such as MS Works Word Processor.
While the cost of devices such as MS Works is attractive, there is no reason why the author should reduce the reduced functionality. They should not do this. While Microsoft Word is expensive, other competitive tools are very beneficial.
Microsoft Word is the most commonly used word processor. This is also the most expensive. Built-in Flesch-Kincaid reading scale calculator, however, does not print in pdf format. It requires a separate tool for converting pdf. Although they are easy to use, they can be expensive.
Corel WordPerfect is the grandfather of word processors. This is reasonably cheap compared to Word. However, this is not cheap. Basically the same tools as Word. It also has a readability scorecard and can also create PDF files.
Sun OpenOffice Writer is an open source word processor. Text editors are the cheapest – it's free! While you have almost all the tools you need, including the creation of PDF files, you miss one area. No readability score calculator.
