What can be added to eBookBinder?eBookBinder supports most common types of text-files:

For the supported languages eBookBinder offers handy automation-tools to convert your markup-formatted documents into eBooks easily
Markup-formatted documents will be converted on the fly when adding these as chapters to your book-project. Visit the preferences of eBookBinder to determine the file-extensions which should be treated for conversion. All files with appropriate file-extensions will be converted when imported.
Additionally there's the cool splice-feature for markup-formatted documents. If activated (option within preferences), eBookBinder can automatically split (by using headlines as new chapter-beginnings) large documents into separate chapters.
Your compiled eBook-project will be saved as an ePub-file. EPub-files can be read by a variety of ebook-readers and by the iBook-application for Mac and iOS.
Additionally, eBookBinder can create mobipocket-files. Therefore the free tool kindlegen (available at amazon.com) has to be installed and set within the preferences of eBookBinder. eBookBinder takes care of the rest.
Mobi-files are especially used for Amazon Kindle-devices and -applications.
