Follow along with Chris as he assembles, refines, and publishes a dynamic and engaging ebook for distribution on the iPad using the iBooks app. The course demonstrates the process of adding all of the components of a dynamic ebook, including engaging text, images, audio, video, 3D models, and dynamic web content. It also shows how to customize the iBooks Author interface and leverage built-in templates to produce a beautifully designed and polished ebook. The course wraps up with a review of the iBookstore publishing process.
The last thing that we want to do to our table to finish it off is apply a Label, a Caption, and a Background to our table. And we'll do that by first clicking one time on our table and then go to our Widget Inspector. And we've already used these in previous movies, so you should already be familiar with how to use them. But go ahead and click the dropdown menu for Label, and let's go ahead and select Edit Label Styles, because for all tables, I like to have them called Table in my document rather than Figure or Illustration or Image.
I just think it's a little bit more descriptive. So in order to create our own custom label style, we'll go ahead and click the Plus button and then type in Table. We'll go ahead and click the Label format, and we'll change it from Figure 1 with all of the decimals behind it to Figure 1. This will make a nice clean label for us. Go ahead and click the Done button and then in the dropdown menu for Label, go ahead and select label Table. And now we can see our table is going to be called Table 1 in our Table of Contents and throughout our book.
We can then go ahead and enter in the text that we want to have for this. Type in the Backpack California, then select the Comment text and type in your comment text, Backpack California offers 5 breathtaking tour packages. This summary table gives you all the basic information you need to decide which tour is right for you. Go ahead and deselect the table, and now our table is all finished. We have a nice label, we have a caption, we've added our Accessibility Description, and all of our data is nicely formatted to match the rest of our book.
