Hello everyone,

 

I am working on my first iBook using iBook Author. I am having a heck of a time understanding how to make something look good in both Landscape and Portrait orientation.

 

For example, I am curious how to make the spaces between paragraphs disappear in portrait view, if I had to use them in order to make the landscape view look proper in terms of formatting. In depth, if I have a text for a section in the book that I need to have at the top of the next column, I am putting my cursor before the text and pressing enter a few times in order to move it along and onto the next column so it is at the top of the page.

 

Here is a picture of what I am talking about:

The highlighted text has been shifted down so it will be at the top of the next page.

 

Now this is what it looks like in Portrait orientation:

There are way too many empty lines between them. Also, you will notice at the top that Not Getting In the Way is also too close to the text above it. Correcting that by putting a space between the lines will screw up the Landscape formatting.

 

Also, adding pictures makes it even MORE difficult to keep both formatted properly and clean.

 

Any advice would be INCREDIBLE.

 

Thank you everyone!
