We’ve Expanded the Pressbooks User Guide

We’ve added to the documentation we provide for Pressbooks users in the Guide to Using Pressbooks.

Wondering about the order of items in your book export? This post explains the default order of types of content in your front and back matter, and how to change it.

We get a lot of questions about how to use the new tables and textboxes features in Pressbooks. You can find answers here.

You may encounter difficulty uploading files to Pressbooks if they exceed our file size limits or the overall storage limit for your book. Learn more about the upload limits here.

Finally, we rearranged what used to be known as Utilities awhile back. The Guide is now updated to provide help with the features now found under tools and settings.
