There are several options for working with title pages.
- Use the title page object to create your title page in the print outputs by using fields from the book object.
- Use a topic object to create a custom layout for print, or as a title page in your HTML-based outputs.
- Create a one-page document externally in Microsoft Word and use a file object to link to that file.
The following components control information included in your title page and the formatting and layout:
- Title Page object
- Media object used by the title page object
- Word publishing template
The title page object is a print-only object, and represents the title page of a printed document. The inclusion of this object in a book will cause a title page to be created in the printed document.
If you want to create a similar effect in your HTML outputs, consider using a topic object that is set to appear only in HTML.
The title page object contains a number of properties that define things such as which heading elements from the book object to include such as super title, title, sub title, version and/or by line, page layout information, and even which image to place on the cover.
The media object you select defines the page layout settings such as page size, margins, and any autotext entries used by the headers or footers. A title page always starts a new section, so you must select a media object.
Each heading element uses a corresponding style in the Word publishing template. The styles are: supertitle, title, subtitle, version, and byline. To adjust the formatting, simply modify the style in the Word publishing template. For exact control of positioning, apply a frame to the style in the Word template.
Include additional information by redefining the header or footer used by the title page.
