Welcome to another new series. Based on the success of my “Notes on Photography” films I thought I would add a new serious about layouts using a similar technique. I have ZERO training when it comes to page design, graphic design, etc. which is, oddly enough, why I think this might work. In essence, if I can do it so can you.
Bookmaking requires a specific skill set, but it is totally okay if you do not possess all the required skills. I do not if it makes you feel any better. I’ve still managed to make a few decent books over the years, but I’ve also learned to collaborate or reach out for help when need be. And when it comes to making test books I AM FEARLESS.
Great content. Very helpful to see your process
Thanks, Dan. Any insight into using BookWright is always useful. Is it possible to change the background colour of a page but leave a text box unchanged i.e a white box / rectangle on a coloured page?
Sure, change background color then create a text box with white background. Easy.
Yes, there is! Draw a shape (under ‘add/insert’), click on the shape and assign a colour to the shape (e.g. white), apply background colour to the page (under ‘edit’). The page changes colour, the shape stays as chosen (in this case, white).
Add a text box into the shape and you can add text. It’s good to play.
You got it!
Dan, very much enjoy these features.
Thanks Scott, more on the way.
