i seem to have a random issue when editing text within iBooks Author.
usually, there is a ctrl-click option with highighted text. (see above).
However, for no reason i can see, sometimes i see the following when trying to highlight and ctrl-click text:
in this instance, i highlighted the word "large", and ctrl-clicked the highlight. the text loses it's highlight, and the drop down menu is treating it as an object, not giving me the text option menu.
Am I missing something really simple here? My apologies if you can't replicate this, i could send you a redacted ibooks file if it helped. it seems to be random in what text it chooses to do this with, is it a text formatting issue?
