The Bookalope extension enables InDesign to intelligently read Word (compatible) & ebook documents, and receive a semantically structured and cleaned up InDesign Story.

Bookalope is a set of intelligent tools that ingest documents in Word or similar formats, even ebooks, analyze their semantic structure and clean up the document, and convert them into various other file formats.

The Bookalope extension enables seamless access to these tools from InDesign. To use the extension, however, an account with Bookalope and an access token are required: https://bookalope.net/

After selecting a document and filling in some optional metadata, the extension uploads the document to the server and waits. Upon finishing the document analysis and conversion, Bookalope returns an InDesign Story with a semantically structured and clean document, as well as a valid mapping of paragraph classes and inlined text to HTML tags.

The extension opens a new InDesign document and places the Story file. If the structure was not identified precisely, then adjustments can be made through the Bookalope website and the extension refreshes the local InDesign document using these adjustments.

Furthermore, other file formats can be downloaded directly through the extension.
