Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Numbering items, part of iBooks Author for Teachers: The Basics.
iBooks Author allows you to add many kinds of elements to your pages, figures,…charts, tables, and so on.…To keep things organized and to reference these items in the main text, you need…to know how to handle numbering.…So let's see how to number items in iBooks Author.…You can number just about anything you can put on the page in iBooks Author and…the application will handle the numbering for you automatically.…The key is to give whatever you want numbered a title and a label in the Widget Inspector.…So, for example, here I have two images on my page and I'd like to call them…Figure 1 and Figure 2. I have the Widget Inspector open, which is the last one…on the right, I'll click on my first image to select it, and in the Layout tab…I'll click on Title and apply a Label of Figure.…
