Exporting Your Book & Ebook

Atticus allows you to export your fully formatted book into print and publish ready ePub and PDF format. Exporting your book has never been easier!

Your ePub, PDF and .docx files can be exported in the Book Details section. To get to your Book Details section go into Writing mode, then click on the edit icon right next to your book title. Scroll to the bottom of that page and you’ll find the individual buttons to export each file type.

Alternatively, to export your ePub or PDF versions, you can also go into Formatting mode, and then click on the Content button in the left column. 

To view the export buttons, look underneath the previewer in the right column.
