Supported Formatting Features

Get in touch with us

At ePublisher, complex books are our specialty — we offer some of the most advanced eBook technology in the industry and strive to make your eBook look as much like your print book as possible. Don’t see a feature you had in mind? Not to fear, it may be in the works! We are constantly looking to develop new formatting features to meet the needs of our authors. Check out some of the most common features below.

Nested Table of Contents

ePublisher supports eBooks with complex hierarchies — prefaces, parts,chapters, sections, appendices, etc. Sections can be nested within sections, within sections. Whatever your book’s organization, we can make it happen. This hierarchy will be reflected in the table of contents view on all popular eReaders, allowing
users to quickly jump to the part, chapter, or section they are looking for.

Drop Caps

Whether you have drop caps in your print book that you want reflected in your eBook,or you’re just looking to add some extra style — formatting these is a cinch for ePublisher.

Hyperlinked Footnotes

ePublisher can format the footnotes or endnotes in your book and hyperlink the superscripted number to the note itself — allowing readers to jump from the number, to the note and back with ease.

Text Borders

ePublisher can create borders around text in your eBook. We even support different sizes, styles and colors – perfect for call-out quotes, chapter headers, and more.

Background Color

ePublisher can create a text box with background color or shading. Boxes with background color can even have a border with a second color. These are great for call-out quotes, info boxes and anything in your book that needs a little extra something.

Background Colors


ePublisher supports sidebars with background color or shading, allowing for complex layouts – especially useful for breaking up information in reference books and other non-fiction.


Color Text

ePublisher can support text in virtually any color – take advantage of the brilliant, full-color displays of the iPad, NookColor, and Kindle Fire.

Advanced Image Placement and Captions

ePublisher supports both the alignment and scaling of images. When left or right aligned, text is free to wrap around images. Images can also be scaled as a percentage of the eReader’s screen width. This means that regardless of the device used*, your images will display as intended. We can even add captions underneath.

* Image scaling and text wrapping are features supported by the EPUB format only,the MOBI format (Kindle) does not support this feature.

Advanced Image Placement

Complex Lists

ePublisher can create lists using Roman numerals and letters – both upper- and lowercase – as well as numbers and bullet points. Lists can be nested to create complex outlines that use multiple list types.
