What is this?
This program is an exterior editing program for the books in Minecraft. It was made for signed books, but unsigned will work, too. It can also convert back and forth between the two versions, signed and unsigned. It also allows for more options while editing books. The two key options are title formatting and author changing. However, it also can edit many other aspects of the book item. Note, this is not a finished version, but it is stable enough for release and has all the key features. Only tweaks are likely to be implemented, but I'll add anything that the community suggests as long as it's a good idea. Also, please reload the book each time you save your Minecraft world, otherwise some item duplication may occur.
Here's a really good piece of software I found the other day by raeleus. It's called Multiplayer Book Paster and you can find it here. It basically allows you to paste entire books into Minecraft without having access to the server files. It makes Minecraft books much more user-friendly.
