You can doubleclick on the covers of each of the text areas directly on the covers to process them. Notice that you can also include, delete and re-position text cells to make your tracks look exactly the way you want them to: And if you are not satisfied with the iBooks Author's fundamental kind of covers, you can even create your own work.

Locate the Media directory in the Media directory in the downloadable version of the iTutorial directory. You will see a document called mpng in this directory, which is the art work for the covers of your text. Drag-and-drop the. pfg from the Media directory onto your title page, which replaces the actual planetary coverage in green with your new glossy work.

Title picture in this guide is 1024×1536, half the width and full width of an iPad 3 display.
