Import ePUBΒΆ

With this option an ePUB can be imported into Word. Since Word only supports CSS1 and (a subset of) HTML4, only that is supported. For most books that should be sufficient. If non-supported HTML tags and CSS attributes are used, these should be ignored and not cause any issues. Not supported in any case are:

  • SVG tags
  • complicated CSS functionality like selectors

Multiple stylesheets, internal stylesheets and different stylesheets per chapter are supported. Endnotes cannot be automatically be converted to normal notes in Word, this must be done manually.

Since a title and author(s) are required metadata for an ePUB, these are set for the Word document. If activated in the settings for ‘Export to ePUB’, these will be reused and read during the procedure for creating the ePUB.
