Version 4.2 of Easy ePub Creator Pro brings 3 great new features.
These features, when used together, greatly reduce the time to create to produce a book and are especially useful for Graphic Novels, Manga and Children’s Picture Books.
1/ Add Multiple Images.
This feature enables you to add multiple images to the book’s resource folder. Images can be added from Dropbox or the apps Documents folder.
(Please Note: Only add multiple images from Dropbox if you have a high speed internet connection. Don’t try to add 80 2mb images on a 3g connection!)
If your image file names contain 3 digit sequential page numbers e.g. BGimage001.jpg, BGimage002.jpg, BGimage003.jpg etc. you will be able to take advantage of the new Auto Page Sequencing in Style Templates.
2/ Auto Page Sequencing in Style Templates.
This feature allows you to save a Page Style Template with a page number placeholder.
e.g. In a Style Template using a page background image – background-image: url(‘../extras/BGimage001.jpg’); background-image: url(‘../extras/BGimage###.jpg’); – and save the Style Template.
When you use this new Page Style Template it will automatically add the correct page number for the page displayed.
If this new style is set as the “Page Default Style” all new pages added will have the corresponding page number in the css style.
This is especially useful if you have added the page background images in a numbered sequence.
3/ Auto Add Pages.
This feature allows you to quickly add up to 100 pages to your book. Enter the page number of the last page in the book in the page number display and you will be asked if you would like to add more pages.
e.g. Your book contains 3 pages – enter page 68 – you will be asked if you would like to add 65 more pages – answer yes – your book now has 68 pages.
If you have already set a “Page Default Style” all new pages will be added in the “Page Default Style”.
These 3 features when used together allow you to create a 100 page Graphic Novel in less than 10 minutes.
