Export as EPUB

Export the current file to EPUB.

EPUB is standard for electronic book files with the extension .epub that can be downloaded and read on devices like smartphones, tablets, computers, or e-readers.

To access this command...

From the menu bar:

Choose File - Export As - Export as EPUB.

From toolbars:

Icon Export as EPUB

Export as EPUB

EPUB dialog box



Sets the version of the resulting EPUB file.

Split method

Select the type of start of the next EPUB section.

Layout method

Determines if a reflowable or a fixed layout EPUB will be generated.

Custom cover image

Enter the full path of the custom cover image file. If the entry is empty, the exporter takes the cover image in the media directory (see below) when the name is one of the following: cover.gif, cover.jpg, cover.png or cover.svg.


The custom cover image is embedded in the EPUB file.

Custom media directory

Enter the custom media directory for the EPUB file. The media directory may contain a cover image as seen above, custom metadata and image links.

By default, the exporter looks for custom media and custom metadata in the current document directory inside a folder with the same name of the document file name. For example, if the document name is MyText.odt, the default media folder for cover and metadata is MyText in the current directory.

For custom metadata, you must provide a file with same name as the original filename and with extension as ".xmp". The provided metadata will override the internal document metadata. In the example above, the custom metadata must exist in the MyText directory as MyText.xmp.

Image links mean that if you create relative links on images or text and they link an image that's available in the media directory, then this media will be available in the EPUB export result as a popup.


Enter the custom metadata to override the document default metadata. These text fields can be left empty.


Enter a unique identifier for the publication.


Enter the title of the publication.


Enter the Author of the publication.


Language of the publication (see RFC4646 and ISO 639 for possible values).


Last modification date for the publication. The value of this property must be an XML Schema dateTime conformant date in the form: CCYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ssZ. Default is the date and time when the export dialog opened.
