Vellum 3.7.2

Category: macOS Apps
Published: May 15, 2024

Designed to help you publish beautiful e-books, Vellum is a modern and well organized application that provides a collection of simple yet very efficient publishing tools.

Simply input the text content and you will be able to preview the final result just how it would look on popular e-book reading devices, such as iPads or iPhones, Kindles or Nooks.

When importing the text, Vellum will automatically recognize the chapters and you will be able to quickly browse the data via the Contents panel. From the same area you can access the Book Info and Cover panels where you can input the book title, subtitle, the author and publisher details, the language, version and ISBN.

In addition, you are able to assign a cover image and Vellum let’s you know if the image size and format is compatible with any of the featured devices. The application also displays the recommended image format.

Moreover, Vellum enables you to add a wide collection of books specific elements which can be arranged any way you like: copyright, dedication, epigraph, foreword, introduction, preface, prologue, epilogue, afterwork, acknowledgements or about the author.

You get to customize the e-book appearance via the Styles panel where Vellum stores a collection of graphic themes designed for different parts of a book: heading, first paragraph, block quotation, ornamental break or paragraph after break. You can browse them in cover flow mode and choose the one that matches your needs.

Enable the Preview panel to view the final result on any of the 4 supported devices (iPad, iPhone, Kindle Paperwhite or Nook Simple Touch). Vellum also provides support for changing the font style or size, or the background color.

All in all, Vellum is a great companion for designing and publishing e-books, but you should be very careful when it comes to actually generating the books: you must buy a license to create the e-book and in the process the title, subtitle and author fields will be locked. You will be able to generate multiple versions for the same book but you can’t modify the locked fields.

What’s New:

Version 3.7:

Add Footnotes with Vellum 3.7

Vellum 3.7 is now available, and brings a much-requested feature: footnotes!

Footnotes in Print
In your print edition, footnotes appear at the bottom of each page, and are indicated by your choice of symbols, numbers, and more. You can include footnotes in the Word file you import, or add them right in Vellum.

Footnotes in Ebooks
Footnotes aren’t just for print! In your ebook, they’ll appear as popups, which readers can view without leaving the page. Vellum automatically creates popups for every supported platform, and you can visualize them right in Vellum’s Preview.

Footnotes + Endnotes
Working on a book that needs footnotes and endnotes? You can combine them both, using your choice of indicators for each type of note.
