Join Tony Harmer for an in-depth discussion in this video Introduction to Word, part of Creating EPUBs from a Word Document.
- [Voiceover] First thing you'll need to understand here…is that you won't be designing…your EPUB in Word, you'll be preparing it.…It's a subtle difference, and it boils down to this:…Word isn't a page layout program.…Well, though, over the versions in its history…it's introduced a number of features…that would lead you to believe…it's extended its reach into that realm,…trust me, that really isn't the case,…and in any event, none of those features…will help you in EPUB production.…
This isn't a what you see is what you get…or wiziwig type scenario, and you'll find out…more about why that's a good thing shortly.…If you're watching this course…and your idea for an EPUB revolves around something…that has a rich layout like a coffee table book…or a children's book, then you need…a product like Adobe InDesign,…and the Lynda.com online training library…has courses by the lovely Anne-Marie Concepcion…that will get you on the road to producing those things.…
What we're doing here is dealing with…and creating what is typically known…
