What users say
- Jutoh caters for all your format needs
Jutoh creates ebooks in Epub, Mobipocket, OpenDocument and plain text formats.
The first two cover most requirements - Epub is the standard with the most support
from ebook reader manufacturers and publishers, including Apple with their iBooks platform,
while Mobipocket covers Amazon's Kindle
platform. Jutoh also creates OpenDocument (ODT) files, which you can open directly
using OpenOffice.org to create PDF or other linear formats. ODT files can be
optimized for submission to the popular Smashwords platform.
- Jutoh helps you design your cover
Adding a professional-looking cover is important in helping you sell your book.
Jutoh includes a simple cover designer with templates for you to use immediately,
or you can tweak them and create your own designs. Your title, author name and publisher
are automatically inserted into the design. If you already have a cover
design, you can use that. You can even keep several alternative designs
in your project and see which works best, or use different covers for different
sites or editions.
- Jutoh helps you import existing content
The New Project Wizard helps you import existing content, whether
from a word processor file, HTML files or even an existing ebook.
You can decide how to split up a document into sections, using
either styles in the document or a pattern that matches section headings.
This makes creating your ebooks as quick and painless as possible.
Imported Epub/HTML content will be simplified as Jutoh does
not retain all the original CSS - however import from ODT, Jutoh's recommended
import format, preserves most styles.
You can convert a Word or other word processor file to ODT using
free tools such as OpenOffice.org or LibreOffice.
- Jutoh is speedy
Fast to import your existing content, whether in text, HTML, or OpenDocument.
Fast to create your Epub, Mobipocket or other format.
Fast to edit content and switch between variations of your ebooks.
Jutoh is written in C++ so runs at top speed - no frustrating delays.
- Jutoh is multi-platform
- Jutoh runs on Windows, Mac, Linux and various other Unix-based systems, and you can easily
copy your files between machines of different kinds. One licence can be used on
multiple operating systems simultaneously; and rest assured that if you
buy a different kind of desktop or laptop, you don't have to leave your way of
working behind and buy new software.
- Jutoh makes it easy to create ebook variations rapidly
- Thanks to Jutoh's configurations, you can describe differences
between versions of your book - a different cover, a different title page, different formatting - all
without needing separate projects. Just select a different configuration
and click Compile. This is invaluable when you are distributing ebooks using
different sites with slightly different requirements.
- Built-in ebook checking gives you confidence
- Jutoh installs Adobe's EpubCheck and EpubPreflight checker programs, so you can easily
check your Epub book for internal errors or problems that might arise with specific readers.
The checkers are run within Jutoh, so you don't have to mess about with invoking the applications
yourself, and Jutoh will show the errors in context using its built-in Epub source viewer,
with helpful tips to help you understand the errors.
- Jutoh helps you store related material
- Jutoh lets you store text, picture, and web notes together
with the book content. So if you're writing or editing your ebook within Jutoh,
you can easily refer to your notes or store text that doesn't yet have a place.
- Jutoh support is responsive and ready to help
- We're a small company so when you ask for technical help, you're talking to
