Learn how to export a standard EPUB or an encrypted EPUB ebook with the help of Kotobee Author.

Standard Epub

Epub is one of the most popular ebook formats used worldwide as it is the official ebook standard used by many apps.

 

To export an Epub book:

  1. Click on Export in the header bar.
  2. Then click on EPUB in the Export Standard Files in the left panel.
  3. If you are using Kotobee Author without a serial number, the Create button will read as “Enter serial number”. Click on it and follow the instructions to register for a free serial number. 
  4. Once you have the required permissions, the button will turn to Create
  5. There are two options provided to help decrease the size of your ebook while exporting:
    • Remove scripting 
      EPUB is the only standard format to support both javascript and other interactive features. However, if you're not interested in exporting a file with either feature, simply check the box next to remove scripting and it will remove all of those features.
    • Optimize
      Optimizing helps you decrease the size of your ebook by removing unused images and files. If you've manually added images through the file manager and will access them using Javascript, you should not optimize your ebook.
  6. Click Create.

Encrypted EPUB

The Encrypted EPUB format allows you full control on who can read your book and restricts access from unauthorized users. The ebook can only be opened using the Kotobee Reader app that's available for both mobile and desktop use. Any attempts to open the ebook with other readers will fail.


In order to encrypt your ebook: 

  1. Optional: Optimize.
    Optimizing helps you decrease the size of your ebook by removing unused images and files. If you've manually added images through the file manager and will access them using Javascript, you should not optimize your ebook.
  2. Type in an Encryption Password in the empty box.
  3. Click on Create.
