Change default attributes for objects
iBooks Author templates have elements and objects—text, shapes, charts, widgets, and so on—with predefined attributes. You can customize an element or object and then make it the default, so that when you add a new one, it uses your customized attributes.
Define a customized element or object as the default
Select an element or object and modify its attributes:
Text boxes: Adjust text size, color, alignment, and spacing.
Note: A table contains distinct formatting areas, such as header row, header column, inside borders, and outside borders. To set a default table attribute, you must apply the attribute to an entire formatting area. For example, if you change the formatting of one cell in a header row, the change isn’t saved as part of the default table style; you need to use the same formatting for all cells in a header row.
