I have seen quote a bit of argument against using a master document for
a book as I was exploring this subject just recently as well.  The help
docs of course are a good place to start.

There are a number of different tools for moving from LO to epub.  There

The folk at infogridpacific looked like they were going to move it to an
online service but it looks like that project was killed and that they
are concentrating on their Digital publisher solution.

15 years or so, I thought myself as "power user" enough to take the
next step and try to create my document relying on Writer's features
and not depending on someone else to typeset the material.
However, after reading both the "Getting Started" and the "Writer
Guide", I am convinced that it is possible. Heh, the mere existance
of those books is proof enough ;-) But I find that there is a gap
between the techniques described there for working with templates,
styles and master documents... and the actual craft needed to make
them work. A quick look to the odt files themselves convinced me of

Does anyone know about a tutorial, book or website where I can
specifically learn about creating a book-lenght document, with
chapters (as subdocuments) and a master document, consistent styling,
indexing and table of contents with Libreoffice?

Thnk you very much for your time, and best regards,
