Sigil 0.7.4

A WYSIWYG ebook editor
Sigil is an application which allows you to read files with the ePub, HTML and TXT formats.

The interface of the tool is plain and simple to navigate through. You can import a file by using the file browser only, because the "drag and drop" method is not supported.

So, you can cut, copy and paste text, make it bold, italic or underlined, as well as change the reading from right to left.

But you can also use a find and replace tool, go to a particular line, edit metadata (title, author, language) and insert images.

In addition, you can split or insert chapters, zoom in and out, hide toolbars, change the heading and text alignment, enable a numbered or bullet list, increase or decrease indent, as well as remove formatting, and more.

In "Preferences" you can change the split view layout (e.g. book, code or split view), configure keyboard shortcuts for any option, switch to a different language for the interface, as well as manage a spell-check list.

The program requires a moderate amount of system resources, can guide you to an online comprehensive help file with snapshots, and didn't cause us any issues during our tests. We would have liked to see support for additional extensions, such as PDF or CHM. Nevertheless, Sigil can be easily used by all levels.
