StreetLib Write: Create your own book layout!
The Holiday season is here and we intend to celebrate! I always found giving presents was the most joyful part of it (although I also enjoy receiving them quite a lot) so I’m the happiest as we have a lot of surprises lined up for you for the coming weeks!
First up: a new option on the StreetLib Write platform! Our goal is, as always, to give you the best tool to create beautiful eBooks and we heard your wishes: you can now customize the themes to make them your own:
Customize your book's layout
StreetLib Write now allows you to create your own customized graphic themes to give your book precisely the layout you'd like. With a basic understanding of CSS rules you'll be able to create a new theme from an existing one, changing any detail you'd like such as font size, text color, margin or spacing.
New CSS Theme Editor
The new theme editor is set the same way as the StreetLib Write editor you already know: In the main composing part is a proper CSS editor to customize each element of your graphic theme.
The Theme Editor's left bar
While you'll find on the left tab a list of the 'graphic elements' that you can modify on the theme. You just need to click on one element to find the matching CSS rules with comments on the composer. There, you can take any rule out of the comments and customize it at leisure. The elements are grouped into sections, including the one dedicated to the PDF graphic layout!
your Theme details and preview
The left bar also allows you to access the theme's details: where you'll be able to modify the Theme description and get a Theme preview, automatically generated once you save your CSS changes.
Your collection of personal themes
All your customized themes will appear under the 'My Themes' tab in the StreetLib Write themes page so you'll be able to use them for any of your reflowable books!
You like the Infinito theme but would prefer the chapter titles to not be in Cap letters? you can now make that change. Of course, if you don’t want to get your hands into CSS, you still have the numerous theme options our designers have prepared for you.
