Way too buggy and riddled with errors. Couple that with the fact that there's no UNDO option (really?) and you've got yourself quite a ride until your simple eBook is finished. Later edit: there seems to be an UNDO button, only CTRL+Z doesn't work. Jesus...

Estaba pensando en un editor de libros, publisher o indesign, pero probé antes este plugin y me funcionó de maravilla. Edite en un día un libro de 40 páginas, que son básicamente 4 post. Ya estoy colocando el libro para descargar en mi blog.

I tried it to create a fast ebook with some of my content and I was very happy with the result. When I tried it, it still has some bugs to fix but even with this, the result was amazing. I couldn't have done it in such a small period of time with other tools. So I recommend it.

Just tried the plugin and tool today and it works great. It was easy to import just the posts I wanted (based on WordPress tags) then format them with the intuitive layout tool provided.
