Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with page elements, part of iBooks Author for Teachers: The Basics.
So far, we've looked at the larger aspects of an iBooks Author project, first…with things like templates and then layouts.…Now we'll continue to narrow our focus and look at individual page elements,…how to create them, change their size, shape, and position, as well as their…place in the stacking order.…Let's begin our look at working with page elements by creating a nice,…clean space to work in.…If you're following along, you can use any of the templates in the Template Chooser.…This one is Contemporary.…I'll click on the Add Pages button in the toolbar and select Pages > Blank to add a blank page.…
I'll also zoom out a little so I can see the whole page by pressing the keyboard…shortcut Command+Shift+Comma, or you can use the menu at the…bottom of the screen to zoom to 75%.…Next I'm going to add a few shapes.…I'll use the Shapes menu in the toolbar to add a square, a circle, and a triangle.…You can use the Metrics Inspector to size and position objects by typing…specific values or clicking the up and down arrows.…
