Nice templates

Nice templates but found a few quirks. Example, when I used a template and built my first book, I was able to edit all the IPSUM LOREM stuff fine in landscape view, but there is a section on one of the templates that is locked or cannot be edited when looking at the book in standard view. Additionally, I have not been able to figure out how to edit the non-landscape chapter pages. The template has a left nav color and white to the right, but the lettering is also white so whatever extends past the left nav gets washed out.

I would like to see an update to fix these issues. There are work arrounds (i.e. creating a colored shape to go over the un-editable Lorem Ipsum stuff) so it is not a major hinderance. but the non-landscape view is challenging to work with.

A little frustrated

I'm trying to use the "Starting Family" template, but on the Chapter page layout I can't change the picture. While they are very nice looking people, I would really prefer to use my own pics. I'm really hoping there is a fix for this.

It Works. Looks great so far.

Despite another review to the contrary, I downloaded this and it works fine. It took a while to download/install, but then you open the Themes app (not the iBook Author) and double-click on a theme. It opens in iBook Author and seems to work the same as the built-in themes. The app seems to have a good variety of themes. I'm just now discovering all the ins-and-outs of this software, so I don't have any more detailed comments … yet.
