Book Settings is accessed via the cog icon in the
upper right corner of the book editing interface. Click on it to change
settings for the book you are currently working on.
Select to track changes which will be made to a chapter. Then click the Save changes button.
To change the language in which your book is being written, select it from the dropdown Language menu. If the language of the book is written right to left, for example Persian, Arabic or Hebrew, check the Right to left text box. Then click the Save changes button.
All books created using Studio will
have a copyright license attached. The dropdown menu contains a
selection of frequently used copyright licenses. Select your chosen
license and click the Save Changes button to save the setting. If you would like to check the details of a particular license, click the link Read full text of the license. A browser tab will open containing a summary of the license, or the full text, depending on the license selected.
enables book contributors to edit the statuses that are available for
assigning to chapters. By default the chapter statuses are: 'new',
'needs content', 'completed', and 'to be proofed'. You can delete
existing statuses, add new ones, and re-order them. The redefined
chapter statuses will then be available on the status dropdown at the
right side of each chapter's bar in the Table of Contents tab.
The Book Metadata page
enables you to set the Title, Short title, Subtitle, Short description,
Long description, Publisher, Publisher city, Publication date, Copyright
year, Copyright holder, Ebook ISBN (if available) and Print ISBN for
the book (if any). This information can be embedded in electronic
outputs for the book, such as EPUB format.
In addition, you can use Additional Metadata to add data and even create new fields to add.
In this page you can optionally assign different roles to the contributors to your book, by clicking the Assign button.
For example, the 'Editor' role might be able to change every aspect of
the book, but only a contributor with the 'Publisher' role would be
allowed to export the book in the output formats available.
(NB: We have deprecated "anonymous user" due to difficulties it poses to our publishing platforms)
this page you can set the default roles for anonymous users (the
general public) and registered users (people with a login account on the
Studio server). Normally, anonymous users are not given the ability to
edit or publish books, due to the risk of spam. Whether you give these
powers to registered users, or not, may depend on the general public
being able to create user registrations for themselves. For this reason,
you may prefer that only administrators are allowed to create new user
accounts, using the Control Centre, rather than the public signing up
for accounts via the Registration form link in the Sign in box of the Home view.
