We often get asked whether it's possible to import work done elsewhere, like a PDF or Word document.
The answer is no - and there's a few things to understand about Book Creator books.
1. You cannot import whole documents
The only files you can import into Book Creator are ePub files (ebooks) that were originally made in Book Creator.
This means you cannot import PDF files, Word documents, Google Doc files or anything else like that.
2. Book Creator makes fixed layout ebooks
So, you can't import whole files, but can you copy and paste text from other documents? The answer to this is yes. BUT...
You may be tempted to copy and paste whole chunks of text from a PDF file into Book Creator. The problem with this is that Book Creator is designed to make fixed layout books. This means text does not flow from page to page, it's fixed in the position you place it.
So if you tried to copy more text than could fit in a page, it would just disappear off the edge of the page. And even if it did fit when you first copied it, if you tried to resize it you might find it breaks the bounds of the text box. See the example below:
So if you are going to copy and paste text from other documents, just bear in mind you'll have to break the text into smaller chunks and work out how it will fit on the page.
