We’re adding yet another perk to PressbooksEDU networks: a discussion space in our Pressbooks Community specifically for network managers of EDU hosted networks. All current and future PressbooksEDU network managers will be invited to connect, interact, and share ideas with others in similar roles in this forum. Our decision to create this new community space
I hope the writing is going well. We’ve got some new PressBooks Features, and a raft of new Themes for you to check out.
New PressBooks features include:
* Reorder parts
* Custom ebook start-point
* Add text to a Part Page
* Add content before the Title Page
* Image compression in EPUB outputs
* Revision history improvements
And we have a bunch of new Themes. To test them out, log into PressBooks, select Appearance –> Themes and select the look you like. Reexport your book — if you don’t like it, you can switch to a different theme and export again.
* Baker: Named after Nicholson Baker, a clean modern theme ideal for novels.
* Browning: Named after Robert Browning, this is a stylized (and colorful) theme made for discussions of literary works. There is a Black & White Version as well.
* Christie: Named after Agatha Christie, this one is made for cozies, mysteries, and other novels.
* Ephron: Named for Nora Ephron, this is an elegant theme for memoirs and fiction. There is a color version and a Black and White version.
* Howe: Named after a founder of the University of Washington Information School, this theme is built for research reports, white papers and other non-fiction.
* Laurence: Named after Canadian novelist Margaret Laurence, this theme is suitable for academic presses and non-fiction.
* Stephenson: Named after Neal Stephenson, this theme is designed with scifi in mind, but can work with a range of fiction and non-fiction alike.
