I've long struggled with paperback formatting. Not a big revenue generator, but to be able to simply input my dimensions and headers, then have the bulk of the formatting done for me would be fantastic. Obviously things like widows & orphans and hyphenation would need to be done manually, but a correctly-sized .rtf file (or in-Shaxpir) file would be a great start.

This is a very important feature for me, so I definitely plan on building it. When I published my first book, I did all my own formatting using Adobe InDesign, and it was a huge hassle.
I'd eventually like Shaxpir to do all the nasty work of preparing a print-ready PDF, especially for indie publishers printing with CreateSpace.
Agreed. Just looking at how to format for printing....either as a file for a commercial printer, or for printing on my own. Unable to determine just how that is done, so far.
