DocBook is a document expression format.

I am looking for a free DocBook editor in WYSIWYG mode.


  • What you see is what you get
  • Supports as many DITA elements as possible
  • Very reliable, never crashes
  • User-friendly
  • Free
  • Can run at least on Windows, webapps OK
  • You mentioned in this answer that there are such editors. What are those you know? – Thomas Weller Jan 16 '16 at 22:57

This could be little late but how about XmlMind DocBook Editor Personal Edition. It is free!

    You could at least have added a URL, although we would prefer it if you would tell us more about the app, and how it answers the OP's question – Mawg Jun 22 '17 at 8:26
  • Hi Samuel! Better late than never :-) However, please add more information, and ideally a screenshot. See what is required for a good answer:… Cheers! – Nicolas Raoul Jun 22 '17 at 11:51
  • ok added the link! Just thought in this day and age it is easy to be lazy. If someone wants to get to the details, they could just select and select the keyword and search in Google. BTW: I have installed XmlMind on my machine as a backup to a paid editor OxygenXml – Samuel Jun 24 '17 at 15:41
