Hi, welcome to Designer and this video we'll show you how to create an ebook by importing your content into Designer on the Designer homepage. There are several ways to start creating an ebook. You can click new ebook, or you can select from one of these options to import your content, or click the create button in the upper right corner and the project creator select an option from the project dropdown. For this example, I'll create an ebook. Next, choose in which format the ebook should be published. There are several different options. You can always change it before publishing, or you can decide later. I'll go with PDF. Now, we can import the content that we have for the ebook, select upload file or insert link. You can import from a Word doc by uploading the file from your computer or pasting the URL into this field.

A Google Doc can be imported by adding the URL. You can import a YouTube video by pasting the URL. The audio will be transcribed and screenshots will be taken from the video and entered into your ebook. A podcast can be imported by uploading a file or entering the URL. Again, the audio will be transcribed. To import a blog post, simply enter the URL. You can import A PDF by uploading the PDF file or entering the URL. Any photos included in the blog post or PDF will be inserted into your ebook. A video can be imported by uploading the file or pasting the URL. Again, the audio will be transcribed with screenshots taken from the video. For this example, I'll upload a Google Doc, so I'll add the URL here. If you have more than one URL, you can also add them. Next, select the theme for the topic of your book.

When you're importing content, you don't necessarily have to choose a theme. This one is about writing an ebook, so I'll select the author theme. Now, choose a template for this book. At the top, there are filters for the book format, such as type theme, which I've chosen author page size and orientation. Before making a selection, you can preview a template to see if it fits your needs. You can always change the template later or make design changes. To choose a template, click Use this template. Your content is now combined with the template and opened in what we call the design editor. Here you can begin making changes to the layout of the ebook. Start from the top and work down because our technology will constantly update pages when you

Change things like fonts, images, or add and remove paragraphs, it will keep re paginating your ebook so that everything is laid out correctly. We cover customizing your ebook in more depth in other videos, but take note of these important points. Looking at the left hand panel, you can adjust font size, style, and spacing. Note the make changes to all elements. Toggle. If you wanna make global changes, then keep it to all elements, and if you wanna make changes to just one element, then switch it off. You also have the ability to add and adjust images, change the cover page, add headers and footers and so much more. Be sure to watch our other tutorial videos for more details. When you're happy with your ebook, it's time. For the Last Step publishing, all you need to do is click the publish button, choose a format that you want your ebook to be in, for example, PDF, and then click export. Of course, you can go back into your project, make more changes, and publish again at any time.
