The instructions say <<< In the Background panel, select the Background Color option and click the color swatch to choose the color. >>> But I can't seem to find any way of changing the background colour from the default, white. Help! (I want black.)
Thank you; but having changed to black, I now need to change the captions and text to white! Is this possible, I wonder?
And whilst on the subject of captions, how do I change their font to say Garamond?
Yes, this is all possible, all to be found in the right-hand panels in Book module.
Just make sure you expand every panel and every triangle inside a panel to unhide it.
All fonts known to your operating system can be used in book module.
Thank you once more. However, I have now decided it would be better if the photos were all on the right-hand pages, and their captions on the left-hand pages. How do I do this (without cutting and pasting all the captions one by one)?
Thanks for that suggestion.
On the subject of fonts and type sizes, I note that one can set a Text Style Preset; but how does one then apply it to the text? And is there a way of applying it to ALL of a book's text?
Select the text box - or a piece of text inside the box - and then choose the preset in Type.
In other words, inside a text box you can apply different presets to different lines. But it gets messy.
Also, note that Ctrl Alt A / Mac Cmd Option A selects all the visible text boxes. By "visible" I mean if you're in Book's Grid view it selects every text box on every page, but if you're in two-up view it selects all the text boxes on those facing pages. It's a less fiddly way to select the text boxes.
