Tips and Tricks

vertical type

On the cover I would like to have the type run vertically instead of horizontal. How can I get the text box to run a verticle direction? or is there another way to accomplish this  Thanks

I’m not sure which book size uou are working on but for the 13" x 11" right at the end of the list of cover layouts there are two that have the text running  sideways. Not sure whether those would meet your needs. There are probably similar ones in the other sizes.

But if you meen like this

I don’t think you can do that with BookSmart layouts, you would need to create the image of your cover in an application such as Photoshop or PaintShop PRO and then import that image into your cover.

If you go to the Search FAQs you’ll see, near the top of the list, one titled Can I Import My Own Design Into BookSmart?

On one of the chapter pages, there is a text box that is sideways. However, I can’t seem to duplicate it or copy it on to a page that I am creating. Any ideas?
