no, no and one more time no… google docs or doc/odt is out of options for me… move image by one pixel, and all layout is going wild, thank you but it's no no for me… When i think about doc/odt and similar editor i feel shivers down my spine…
I can provide epub for editing or i could take some time and write some wrapper for LaTeX and then compiling to pdf… But for my side no google doc/odt/doc/docx…

Making google spreadsheet, feels more reasonable, with url/symbol/name/lvl/notes/ilustration…

it's up to you ) google spreadsheet would be ok too, but then it has to be with strict borders per page (to print 1 monster per page); in docs pages are visible, in spreadsheets you need to create layout for them I suppose

Fun :D

1) maybe it's possible to remove 'back' button somehow
2) I like how you removed background. But I would rather prefer big font, then small; even bigger then default. Also it's easier to read font with 'serif'; for example 'Times New Roman'. I suppose it would be cool to have style customization, something like css-template for it.
3) Considering excel; do you mean - to add there https://www.dropbox.com/s/76y9ivf5ywj5l ... e.xls?dl=0 'picture' field and assign them at certain place automatically? Sounds cool

1) It's possible, but i'm lazy xD
2) there is css-template in epub, which i convert later to pdf…
3) pretty much yes…

so spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... 1113273466 to add notes/images

epub: https://www.dropbox.com/s/dof4euil7bdq3 ... .epub?dl=0 after unpacking it like archive, you have two css inside…

but font-family, size and page margin are defined in this section of calibre: https://i.imgur.com/pvyPeVg.png

yes I'm lazy a bit…
Probably best looking results we will get if i create LaTeX files, based on r_info.text but from Mikaelh site is faster, and require less work from me…

refresh the fancy one from my previous post…

for spreadsheet it will be nice to have direct links/urls to images. then i will can quite easly download it at once, and don't need to think how to get them from xls later in automatic way… of course if the site allow hotlinking, which become less common

if the pdf will have some background the best format for lineart like in example will be png with transparency for background, in other instance jpg…
gif and other format i will to convert, so i will pass

Oh I see now. So pictures could be paste as backgroung. Very coold idea indeed! I suppose it's better to use black&white pictures, so it would be easier to print it, what do you think?
