So you can take your time deciding–output into a direction not planned before is always only a small step away.
Papyrus Author offers all possibilities for publishing and self-publishing:
Classical Book Publishing: The Publishing House
With a publisher, you will not have to do a separate layout. They will set the book themselves. Publishers expect professional writers to submit texts formatted in a default format such as standard pages, which tells them how many pages the book will have in its printed form.
Save and submit your manuscript as a PDF or Word document (if they don’t use Papyrus themselves, yet).
Papyrus supports you with the conversion of any text into standard pages with one click. .
Modern Self-Publishing: The E-Book
Papyrus creates an Amazon Kindle mobi or ePub file from your text with one click, ready to upload to the e-store or platform of your choice. .
This covers Amazon, IngramSpark and all others. Creating a finished e-book could hardly be easier. Optionally, you can choose a layout beforehand. Images are placed and sized as precisely as possible.
Your e-book is automatically checked for consistency before it is created. This includes checks on the title picture, styles, formatting and more. Many possible problems can be found before you go into production.
All this can be done without any knowledge of formatting languages such as HTML and CSS. But if you know your way around those, you can also change our CSS templates directly.

Print-on-demand: The Book as a PDF with Layout
Papyrus Author allows the creation of elaborate photo books and of fully layouted novels, both done with the highest possible precision, and turns them into print-ready PDF files. .
Papyrus offers dozens of templates for the most widely used print-on-demand service providers and your favorite print-shop.
Setting a novel is done automatically, with matching typeface for continuous text and headlines, automatically mirrored margins, table of contents, illustrations, title picture etc.
Adjustments to specific wishes are easy to realize. The delivery to your printing service provider is done in the classic, perfect PDF. Color type is usually accepted by the printer as sRGB, but Papyrus also allows you to convert to PDF variants in so-called CMYK colors, or any other custom color profile. Just as your print shop requires, all done with one click.
Papyrus also supports you in bringing your text into a professional form.
For example, you can create the front-matter of your book with the touch of a button–the usual title pages, frontispiece (the traditional second page) and imprint are automatically generated using your author data.
When you are ready to consider your publishing options, your book will be at the finish line. And Papyrus Author helped you through all stages of creating it.
With the planning tools you developed your ideas. With the word processor you wrote your first draft and finished the raw bulk.
