Intro to Advanced Text Styling I: Tip boxes and Quotes

Vook has an unparalleled ability to create great-looking eBooks. It's all thanks to our Style editor—a proprietary tool that empowers you to edit and create a stylesheet without knowing any code.

This week and the next, I'm going to show you tips for unlocking the Style editor's full capabilities for designing text—everything from setting the margins to controlling the spacing between lines. Today, we're going to focus on tip boxes and block quotes.

Tip boxes are like callouts or sidebars inside textbooks: they visually set apart information. Tip boxes make great containers for nuggets of information, and they especially come in handy if you have a visual style you want to reuse throughout your eBook.

Create tip boxes

Highlight your text and then select "div.tipbox" from the Styles drop down menu. Your text will become a tip box. In the Style editor, you can round its corners, change the background color, and adjust the margins and spacing.

If you find yourself styling text the same way multiple times throughout your eBook, consider using tip boxes and quotes to automate the process. You can find these options and more within the Style editor. Next week we'll cover styling captions.
