Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting text preferences, part of iBooks Author for Teachers: The Basics.
Let's finish our look at working with text in iBooks Author by considering how…you can set preferences to make working with text even easier.…I'll open the Preferences dialogue box by going to iBooks Author > Preferences or…you can use the keyboard shortcut, Command+Comma.…In General Preferences, I have the choice of whether to show font previews, or…what you see is what you get displays, in the Format menu bar.…I can also turn off these WYSIWYG Font menus by temporarily holding the Option…key when I open the menu.…
I can also set the color of my invisible characters here.…These are things like spaces and paragraph returns that you don't normally see.…You can show and hide invisibles from the View menu or by pressing the keyboard…shortcut Command+Shift+I. In the Auto- Correction tab, I can turn curly quotes on…or off, I can automatically capitalize the first word following punctuation, I…can automatically superscript numerical suffixes, things like the st in first…and the nd in second, et cetera.…
