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.
These changes could impact page counts for print book files. If you wish to avoid these changes (and the bug fixes), you can apply the theme lock to your book(s) before July 5. 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!
