Re: Page size and margins - ADDENDUM

I also forgot to ask if the default orientation for a new iPad or epub Project is always landscape rather than portrait.

Re: Page size and margins

So, should I have set the page size at 6x9in., the same size as my front cover? Or do I not bother setting any page size or margins? I'm attaching the Master Guides window for what I already have. Should I make ANY changes to it?

Re: Page size and margins

Oooops, I should have mentioned that I was going for a reflow layout. I had decided that rather than going for a fixed layout, we'd simply use a PDF format for some people. So, reflow it is!

Page size and margins

If I create from scratch an epub version of this never-ending book in QXP 2015, is there an optimum page size and margins that I should set on my master page? :oops:

Re: Links on a Contents page

I don't think I've ever been so completely shocked at just how LITTLE I knew until I started this project for a friend. :shock:
I will be experimenting for days I think.

Re: How do I leave a gap before a new page?

Thanks, I'm going to need to experiment with the 'Space Before' settings. Does this learning curve ever stop? :lol:

Re: How do I leave a gap before a new page?

Sorry, I think we're at cross-purposes. I was referring to trying to leave a gap in the reflowable epub version, not in the print version.

How do I leave a gap before a new page?

If I want to leave a gap before a new chapter, can I just insert an empty picture anchored to the text box "before the gap"? If so, is there an optimum size that the box should be?

Re: How do I prevent a page from falling apart?

Thanks for all your help, Mike. By the way, I am on a Mac, but I've never even heard of Affinity Designer. :lol:
