Will sigil ever be compatible with the M1 processor?? I've tried multiple times this year (Nov 12, 2021 today) and it never works. Have a 2020 MacBook Air.

Just a note: This hasn't been a WYSIWYG editor in a while. The dev removed that portion of the app and split it off into a separate app called PageEdit (also open source).

I have used this app only once when Amazon was refusing my book in Calibre's mobi format and it saved my life. :-) I opened with Sigil the epub generated by Calibre and generated the TOC (Tools/Toc/Generate at that time) then I opened the edited epub in Kindle Previewer or kindlegen and converted to mobi. So 5 stars for this invaluable tool!

8.01 is out at http://sigildev.blogspot.it A really nice and great application to create or edit epub. My only complaints with these last versions (8.0 and 8.01) is that you can not paste text in the Replace field using key shortcut anymore. It is not a tragedy, but it's not so comfortable activate the control-click menu every time you want paste the replace string in Search and Replace… So before to upgrade take also a backup copy of previous version if it works for you.

Great software, unfortunately no longer under active development. See: http://sigildev.blogspot.com I am still using it in Mavericks. I use Calibre also, which is constantly improving as an ebook editor.

Actually, 0.6.2 is out, but hold off. More and more people are reporting that it crashes on start up in OSX. Someone really needs to catch up on this listing at MacUpdate.

Sigil 0.6 is out for some time and this version allows to switch HTMLTidy of so (at last!) it is possible to insert html5 tags (like video and audio). Sigil is better for epub creation (by hand) than Calibre because it does not insert it's own css. At the moment this is the best software available: I have tried Jutoh, but development seems to have stopped (and the interface is ...not standard - to say the least!) and conversion utilities like eCub (and Calibre), Legend Maker, eBookBinder, MePub and a lot of Python scripts (I even wrote one myself) but none is as easy to use as Sigil. So: at this moment this is the best option available - even as it is slow on saving projects because it uses an already packed epub file format. Recommended!
