Update on book editor

The book editor's most useful feature, probably, is the ability to paste in arbitrary text from Word or LibreOffice, or any other source. It will then, locally in the browser for maximum speed, process that text and convert it into Leebre's format. This enables authors to easily fall back to formatting things in tools they are familiar with. For example, if an author is annoyed that Leebre did not recognize the chapters in his or her novel, and if the author isn't sure how to format it so that Leebre would recognize the chapters, the author can always "fall back on" just copy-and-paste each chapter one at a time. Of course, I will try to make it as automatic as possible, but it's always good to be able to fall back on good ol' copy and paste!
