New author.. DIY/self-publishing template questions
I'm using the style template for the first time [Us Trade 6x9] and I've got several questions I would absolutley LOVE some assistance with:
1. Author name/Book Title- there are yellow boxes wherein they tell you to double click and put in your name and on the next page you do the same to put in the title of the book, and it's supposed to then appear on all subsequent pages. I cannot for the life of me get it to appear on any other page than the one I type it into.
2. They have a page for all of the front matter, and then they have a single template/style guide page for the first page of a new Chapter. What I can't figure out is how to recreate that page for my next chapter, and all successive chapters after that. I can copy and paste the text, but not the lines dilineating the Chapter header from the rest of the page/text, etc.
3. My book is full of illustrations. I have zero idea how to insert them into this template, or any Word template for that matter.
thank you SO much in advance!
