A range of tools is available to support the creation of ebooks. Making the right choice of tool is crucial, depending on the type of ebook to be produced and how and where it will be read.

Most tools can take a word-processing document and automatically convert it into an EPUB format. Complex documents, however, may need to be tweaked within a text editor to ensure that they meet the EPUB specification.

In cases where PDF ebook creation is required, many different PDF-creation tools are available and in some cases PDF creation will be built into the word-processing application or the operating system.
