Thank you for your help.
I have a section page (iii) at the begginning of a book with a gallery of 12 photos. I have titled it and written a caption for each photo. Yet, when I switch to portrait mode the widget disappears. There is no image on the side. I have a title on the page in a text field, but I have no text in the main body text field (I'm using the the "Foreward" section template).
What's happening? I've downloaded two books about iBooks Author today but have yet to find a clue as to what I am doing wrong.
iBooks Author 1.1
To view your Widgets in Portrait mode, open the Inspector, click the Layout Inspector button and select Show Thumbnail Track option at the bottom of the panel. This shows the sidebar area to the left side of the text frame and the Widgets will appear. You can drag them up and down to reposition them as needed.
