Has anyone tried it out for their books yet? Do we think it's a good idea or a bad idea?

Ian Miller | 10689 comments No idea how good it is, but it will be interesting to see.

Karsten Nielsen (karstenbechnielsen) | 8 comments Looks interesting, but it probably comes with the ordinary kindle limitations i.e. lacking ability to transform more complex formatting.

You're probably right about that ;)

Goran Zivanovic I use LibreOffice, instead of Word. Not sure how that will go down.

I already use Calibre to convert to epub and check layout on devices. Might be good for some users?

Karsten Nielsen (karstenbechnielsen) | 8 comments I'm humping along with my old Word 2003. Fortunately it can still convert the manuscript to acceptable docx.

Doesn't Kindle accept libreoffice documents? Just a tip, Goran; Calibre really likes Kindles HTML :o)

That's a great tip, Karsten. Thanks. I don't think it accepts .odt files from memory. I export them as .doc and hope for the best in Calibre before sending them off to Kindle.

I read somewhere that .docx is problematic, which I did try as an export and it looked all wrong.
