New at Pressbooks in November: Enhanced Language Support and More

Introducing Global Typography, Help With Printing & More

New! Language Support for Every Theme

At first, Pressbooks had only a few themes that could support different languages. Now, you can write your book in any language, and use any of our themes. Simply enable the “Global Typography” feature in your book and you’ll be able to add language support whatever theme you’re using. Here’s how to use the new Global Typography feature.
