Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing content from a PDF, part of iBooks Author for Teachers: The Basics.
You can easily place PDFs of graphics and single page documents into your…iBooks Author projects.…But it takes a little more effort to do the same for a multipage PDF.…But with the help of another application and an interactive widget, you can add…great looking multipage PDF content to your projects.…Let me start by saying that it is quite possible to place PDF files into iBooks Author.…You can drag and drop PDFs right from the finder into an iBooks Author project.…You can open PDFs in Preview and copy and paste the text with formatting…into iBooks Author.…
And iBooks Author can place PDF content that's been copied from…other applications.…For example, I'll switch over to Adobe InDesign, and right here I have a table…and a photo, I'll select them, copy them, and I have my InDesign preferences set…to copy PDF data to the clipboard. I'll switch over to iBooks Author, and paste.…And I get a great looking table in PDF format in iBooks Author.…If I open the Metrics inspector, I can see it's called droppedimage.pdf.…
