typesetting a book

Asked by Moe Fury on 2011-11-11

I am writing a book using MS Word. This is quickly proving to be a pain. I heard about Inkscape and am trying to pull the text from Word to Inkscape. No such luck. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Hello,

Inkscape is a vector graphics program, and thus not designed for your needs. I'd suggest that you try LibreOffice Writer (the opensource equivalent of MS Word, with some interesting formating features, see http://www.libreoffice.org/), or Scribus (http://www.scribus.net/) if you need a real publishing program.

Regards.

Can you help with this problem?
