Book Creator 2.4 is now available in the App Store! With this update we’re happy to announce many new features, all of which have been frequently requested.
Hyperlinks and richer text editing
You can now add hyperlinks to your text and images. Link to pages in your books, external websites, send emails, and even make phone calls or open other apps!
We’ve also made improvements to text editing introducing styling of individual words with bold, italics and underline.
(Styling and hyperlinks in text requires iOS 6.0 or later)
Import books back into Book Creator for further editing from Email, iTunes, Safari, and lots of apps including Dropbox, Google Drive and Evernote using “Open in Book Creator”.
With Book Creator 2.4 easily backup and restore individual books from an iPad, or start a book on one iPad and finish on another. Great for collaborative working across multiple iPads!
With the “Combine Books” feature you can now work on sections of a book individually, even on different iPads, before combining into a final book. In the classroom this makes creating a class book from all your students’ work a simple task, or at home use this feature to set up common page layouts which you can then copy into your current book.
Accessible from the My Books screen under the + button, this will copy all the pages from a book to the end of another book. To combine two books they must have the same layout (Portrait, Square or Landscape).
For more information check out How to combine books.
Improved PDF export
PDF documents now export with high resolution images and vector text so that they look as good as your iBooks, perfect for sharing, printing and annotating. Hyperlinks will also work in the PDFs.
Fixes and improvements
This update also includes a few other fixes and improvements:
- The version number of Book Creator is now shown in your iPad’s Settings app.
- The Getting Started tutorial now saves any changes made to it (a few people were making books in there and losing them). You can reset the tutorial to its original content using the Inspector.
- Fix: An occasional bug affecting iOS 6 users where audio would play silently.
- Fix: A crash when converting a video with no audio channel to M4V format.
