To open the Reedsy Book Editor, you first have to create a book or import a manuscript by going to the My Books tab on your sidebar.

Create/import book

Click on IMPORT and upload your manuscript; or
Enter your book title and click on the green CREATE button.

If you’re importing, drag-and-drop or select the manuscript file from your computer, add a title, and boom! You’re ready to format (or write) your book.

Note: the files uploaded must be either in .docx or .odt format and no larger than 50 MB.

After you have created/imported your book, it will appear in the My Books section of your Reedsy dashboard. Simply click on WRITE and you can start working on your book. Add parts and chapters as needed, and proceed to export your beautifully formatted book once you’re done with your edits.

Can I download the Editor onto my computer?

No, the Editor can only be used when you’re logged into your Reedsy account. It’s not a downloadable app. This allows us to securely store backups of your book on our servers.

Can I work collaboratively with another author in the Reedsy Book Editor?
Not yet, but we’re happy to say that our developers are working hard to create this feature! For now, we recommend sharing your login details with the person you would like to write with.
