Hidden Text Boxes
Sometimes, after conversion, a book may have miniscule text-boxes. They can be hard to notice, and might be caught in only a few ways, such as:
If you notice that you have paragraphs that lack clarity, but do not appear to be hiding a text box, try this test:
Figure 1: If you look closely, you might be able to tell that the text of the second paragraph is slightly pixelated around the edges of the letters. This is a sign that there is something hidden in this paragraph. This is how the text box (to the left of the second paragraph, beneath the object anchor) appears after the "Select text-box" + Tab" move; notice the object anchor and, just below it, the selected text box – or, at least some of the box's handles!
Q: If there are phrases used within the text that indicate the motion of turning a page, for example, should we edit them to reflect the digital format? For example, in Rich Man, Poor Man after the book ends, it states "Turn the page to start reading the follow-up to Rich Man, Poor Man" - I was considering changing this to something along the lines of: "Continue reading for the follow-up to Rich Man, Poor Man" - is this the correct thing to do? - Jenn
A: Interesting situation! I would suggest we remove this page entirely from our version of the book.
