We’ll be releasing some improvements and bug fixes to five themes (McLuhan, Andrews, Asimov, Clarke, Jacobs, Rothbard) in early July.
If you are not using any of these themes on your book(s), you will not be affected.
The improvements and bug fixes include small formatting changes in some headings, changes to the default formatting of lists, or user-reported issues such as handling of images, padding between quotes and paragraphs, and issues where long running headers that would bump content to new pages.
Because these changes could impact the page counts for your print book files, we will be pre-emptively applying theme lock to all books with these themes to lock your book’s theme in its current state. This will happen Thursday, July 28.
That means you will not receive the bug fixes unless you take action to enable them.
If you would like to get the bug fixes, you can simply remove the theme lock from your book(s). You can find instructions on how to do this in this chapter of our user guide.
Note that once you remove the theme lock, you cannot return to your theme’s previous state.
As always, please let us know if you have any questions about this change!
