Customizing Your eBook's Toolbar Buttons

Customizing Your eBook's Toolbar Buttons

You can completely customize your eBook's toolbar. Once you've selected your eBook's button sizes and toolbar colors within the 'Options' section, you can visit the 'Toolbar' section to customize the buttons.

To select the buttons that should be displayed within your eBook, your first step will be to launch the 'Toolbar' window. On the eBook Starter toolbar, go to 'Project' - 'Toolbar' and click on the 'Buttons' tab to load the window.

All of the available buttons are displayed to enable you to select which buttons you would like to display within your eBook.. However, you certainly won't want to display all of them.

It is highly recommended that you only display one row of buttons, as any more will make your eBook appear to be too crowded and look unprofessional.


If you're using a template to create your eBook, here are the recommended buttons for your toolbar:

First
Prior
Next
Last
Home
Search
Bookmarks
Print
About
Exit

Your toolbar will look something like this:



Please note: The 'Created with: eBook Starter' logo is optional. However, if you leave it and include your affiliate ID within the 'Options' - 'Toolbar' - 'Link' section, you will earn a commission on any sales that are generated through your ebook.
