Even if you use this extension, the results you get depends upon
the complexity of the original document. A simple text document ought to
convert well. My documents contain text, figures in frames, tables, and
two different types of lists. I have to use another program, Sigil,
designed to edit ePUB documents to get the results that I want.
As an example, the following link contains two files named
Introducing Base (ODT file at the top of the list; ePUB at the bottom of
I did not use writer2epub. Instead, I used Calibre for the
conversion from ODT to ePUB and the Sigil to do quite a bit of editing.
Both of these programs are open source. (Feel free to download the ODT
version of Introducing Base and then use writer2epub to convert it to
ePUB. Then compare the difference.)
I just did a simple test. I had a simple text document containing
only several paragraphs that were first line indented that I converted
using writer2epub. The first line indented paragraph style has a setting
for the amount of indention, but the conversion did not include this
To get really good results converting ODT documents to ePUB, you
need to understand styles and xhtml. (The underlying files for a ePUB
document are written in xhtml.) It also takes a considerable amount of
time to edit the
xhtml to give the document the quality you want it to have.

I remember some time ago a thread about publish to the ePub format from
LibreOffice, I can't seem to find it.
Is anyone doing this with good results? What would be the best workflow
to go about this?
Thanks in advance for any hints about this.
what you're looking for is Writer2ePub, take a look
