New features for Books on Demand

Publishing a book and becoming an author has never been easier than it is today. If you are serious about writing, self-publishing offers a practical, easy and fruitful way to get your content out to the world. One of Booktype’s longest partners, Books on Demand (BoD), is the leading European self-publishing platform.

Ever since we started collaborating with BoD in 2014 to develop their authoring environment, easyEDITOR, self-publishing hasn’t stopped growing. We are proud to announce a few new features we developed for BoD, improving authors’ experiences in making their books.

New features in easyEDITOR

One of the first things that you consider when writing a book, is its structure. We have now made it easier to organise your table of contents in multiple layers. For example, you can define chapter headings, subheadings and sub-subheadings as they will appear in the table of contents.

You can now decide and organise your table of contents down to the desired level of heading, subheading, etc.

In an increasingly visual world, images feature more and more in books and publications. We have improved easyEDITOR to offer a better image editor. You can now modify the image directly from your book, i.e. flipping, mirroring, zooming in/out, cropping, aligning it.

Clicking on your image, you access the new Image Editor and optimise your image directly within your book.

Last but not least, we have added a seemingly small but very important feature for editing: a Search & Replace function. There is only one thing that is more annoying than making a mistake; it’s making it twice. With the Search & Replace function, you can be sure that your mistake is corrected throughout your entire body of text without the tedious work of scanning for repeated errors.

Never repeat your mistakes: Search & Replace.

These features were developed by the Booktype team upon request from the BoD team, and following feedback from users.

easyEDITOR is now more easy and effective in its ability to make beautiful books.
