DEEDA Designs ibooks author TEMPLATES FAQ
How editable are your templates?
All our Templates are 100% customizable. Change as much or as little as you like - it's up to you! Add images, change colors, switch fonts - there's no limit to how much you can customize your template to fit your specific needs.
How many times can I use a template?
Once you've purchased a template you can use and reuse it as many times as you want! There is no limit to the number of times you can publish with it.
Can I use your templates for commercial and/or personal use?
Yes, you can use any of our templates for both personal or commercial use (no additional licenses are required for commercial projects).
Please note: You can't re-sell any templates as-is, or in a way where these resources can be extracted in their original form. Any resources must be incorporated into an original work of art, and can't make up the primary value of what you create.

My images disappeared when I switched from Landscape to Portrait orientation. Help?
Images imported into iBooks Author are referred to as objects, and there are three different kinds of objects. When you drag and drop an image into your book, they are inserted by default as either anchored or floating objects. Those two types of objects don’t appear in portrait orientation unless you give them either a title or a caption. Luckily, that’s pretty easy to do and here’s how:
- Click on your image.
- Go to the Inspector in the upper right menu bar. Click the last righthand icon called Widget Inspector (it looks like a folder with a gear on it).
- Check the Title check box and you’ll see that your image now has a dummy title and border around it.
- Layout and your cartoon now has a dummy text title as well as a light gray border around it.
- You could opt to add a caption below the image instead. Both work, it’s just a matter of personal preference.
