Calligra Author

Calligra Author

Calligra Suite is an open source set of applications written to help you to accomplish your work. It includes office applications such as a word processor, a spreadsheet, a presentation program, a database application, etc, and raster and vectorial graphics tools.

Calligra Author is a specialized tool for serious writers aiming to become what Krita is for painters. The application will support a writer in the process of creating an eBook from concept to publication.

Calligra Author targes two types of user:

  • Novelists who produce long texts with complicated plots involving many characters and scenes but with limited formatting
  • Textbook authors who want to take advantage of the added possibilities in eBooks compared to paper-based textbooks.

Calligra has been under development since 2010, when it was spun from KOffice. Calligra Author is a new member of the growing Calligra application family. It will be released with Calligra 2.6 with the first version being very similar to Calligra Words.
