In the information below, we will discuss the specifics of non-fiction fixed layout eBooks.
As we consult with clients around the world on eBook development, one thing we hear on a very regular basis is that complex eBooks must be designed in a fixed layout format. The eBook marketplace changes very rapidly, so being up-to-date on everything is hard to do. While ePub2 has been around for a long time, it does not officially have a fixed layout eBook option. Full-page zoom: While other fixed layout formats may not allow the page to zoom in or out, this is a common option for the ePub fixed layout format. Single-page view: In some devices it is possible to make the eBook switch to view only one page at a time instead of the standard two page spread.
Full page coverage: iBooks Author files are automatically designed to fill up the full screen of the iPad, not just to match the page dimensions of the print book. Reflowable option: There is an option in iBooks Author to allow the reader to change to a reflowable mode by rotating the device into portrait mode. Widgets: iBooks Author comes with a few built-in widgets that add some basic functionality like image galleries, but you can also create more complex or specific widgets. Integrated media content: iBooks Author files can open up to a video that plays automatically, allowing you to offer an introduction to the book in that more engaging format.
Remember that the Kindle format does not allow page or element zooming, so you should consider how to make the content work at the native screen size.
Amazon’s fixed layout format has a region magnification option that allows you to make text pop up in a more readable size.
Periodically we hear questions about making a fixed layout eBook in the magazine format that is supported on many of the devices. Now that you know what is possible, it might be more clear that fixed layout eBooks are not as fleshed out as they could be, and that it would be best to consider if and how to approach the development of these files. Some people do this to increase the size of the free samples automatically generated by the eBook retailers. Fixed Layout eBooks are HTML-based eBook files that are usually designed to match the layout of a print book. Amazon only sells eBooks in the Kindle format, but that format, just like ePub, is built using HTML and CSS files. Has the Kindle format gotten any more sophisticated in how it handles tables or floating images?
Yes, Amazon’s Kindle Format 8 has support for many great design features, including floating images, tables, color text, embedded fonts, and more.
Print book page numbers are included in the HTML code of both the Kindle and ePub formats as anchors.

This group bound themselves by a vow of poverty and chastity, to "enter upon hospital and missionary work in Jerusalem, or to go without questioning wherever the pope might direct". They called themselves the Company of Jesus, and also Amigos En El Senor or "Friends in the Lord," because they felt "they were placed together by Christ." The name had echoes of the military (as in an infantry "company"), as well as of discipleship (the "companions" of Jesus).
This myth is believed and repeated by everyone from major publishers to eBook conversion houses to self-publishing information sources.
Because your eBook sales will be affected negatively if you only focus on fixed layout eBook design options.
You do lose some design capabilities when going to reflowable eBooks, but in many cases the benefits of that decision, especially the expanded sales opportunities, outweigh the lost design elements.
Just so you know where things stand right now, let’s cover the basics of what is possible with non-fiction fixed layout content.
However, Apple developed a solution of its own, adding some functionality that allows a standard ePub2 file to be displayed in a fixed layout. In addition to having native support for more features and functionality, ePub3 is being more widely adopted across the different retail platforms, including Apple, Kobo, Sony, and Google. This is sometimes controlled by the reading system (meaning that you as the creator have control) while in other cases this is dynamic based on the orientation of the device (landscape vs. You can also design the book in landscape or portrait, depending on what works better for your content.
For example, you might be able to include weather or maps from the internet to travel books, or add some measurement conversion or serving size assistance in a cookbook. You are also able to design the visual interface of the video or audio player to make it better integrate with your eBook design. For that reason, it is best to create non-fiction fixed layout files in the iBooks Author format, not the standard fixed layout format, whenever possible. However, the smaller size of the Kindle Fire screens and the inflexibility of reading options in this format make it a less desirable option for non-fiction fixed layout content. Sometimes it is best to have some content, like media files, available on your website instead of including them in your eBook files. This will more than likely require re-designing the whole book, increasing the overall font size, adding new pages to adjust to the smaller page size, etc.
B&N does have a fixed layout format for non-fiction titles called PagePerfect, but it is actually just an auto-converted PDF file.
Unfortunately, this format is not related to the standard eBook formats, and the retailers do not sell them alongside eBooks or through the same sales mechanisms.
XHTML5 is a stricter and cleaner version of HTML5, with rules from XML imposed on the code. It is used on the KDP website to auto-convert files uploaded into the Kindle store, and it is also integrated into the Kindle Previewer program to handle the conversion of non-Kindle files loaded in that program.


The key difference between fixed layout files and reflowable files is that reflowable eBooks allow the reader to have more control over the reading experience, such as changing the font size, background color, etc. For example, the narration overlay functionality used in many children’s eBooks is not possible in PDF files.
These services sometimes offer an option for Kindle checkouts, but typically they are limited to ePub files because of the more common use of the Adobe DRM.
