Author Relaunch - Post 2

Welcome back!

One of the great things about Jutoh is it's very easy to make compilations. I have a video about making a compilation in Jutoh. You know that I love it, but one of the problems that I found was I had an older book from a client that was re-edited, and now I need to put the new edited version in.

Using Jutoh to Create a Document With a Template

Transcription

In this episode I'm going to show you how to take a document, either Word or Open document or some other format that's readable by Jutoh and explain the easy way to use a template.

Welcome back. Like I said, I'm going to take my Word document, which is from one of my clients, and use my base template which has all my styles and other things set up and basically just import everything so it works and you've got 90% of your work done. I will have a copy of this template below. You can click on and download it and modify it or do whatever you want.

What does that mean for you?

Well, I'm going to blog about going from zero to, well, wherever I end up. Honestly. The good, the bad, the ugly, and the stuff no one talks about.

What I'm going to do is a quick video if you have a book report; or, you could do this manually.  Enter this data into a database. This goes into my system, which you won't have, but it'll give you an idea of what you can do. I guess you could do it with an Excel spreadsheet, but it gets crazy. Too many rows and it's too hard to work with after a long time.

Hello, everybody. Today I'm going to talk about how to make your long documents in Word very easily usable in InDesign.
