I am looking for a WYSIWYG/GUI eBook editor that has robust functionality beyond that of Calibre or Sigil. I am speaking of the ability to edit many of the HTML elements via GUI without touching a line of code, adding interactivity (forms, quizzes) and complete formatting control.

I have found software such as Jutoh and Kotobee (even Kitaboo)? Are they comparable? Any other eBook editing tools that provide robust editing features from a GUI? This is not to exclude the ability of HTML/CSS editing, but I am looking for something that could allow feature rich eBook editing/creation without needing to code those sorts of elements.

I have experience with Kotobee Author and I can tell you that it is what you're looking for. Kitaboo as well I think but I haven't used it much. Only Kotobee. the thing is Kotobee now offers widgets (they call it mini-apps) and it gets the job done for many of the features I needed without needing to code anything. So I definitely recommend checking it out.


One possible solution is to use Adobe InDesign. This offer you the possibility to visually create ebooks, (with forms and so on). But you can't edit already created ebooks. Also this product can cost you 21 USD/mo. Of course you have trial, probably student license.

P.S. No affiliate with Adobe

  • I looked at that but it doesn't appear to be a viable solution as it doesn't export out to ePub well nor can you edit them as you mentioned

  • about export to epub please check this page: helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/export-content-epub-cc.html Jul 30, 2021 at 4:51
  • Didn't say it didn't export, said it doesn't very well. I.e I don't think InDesign is really intended to create digital content such as eBooks
