Hello all !

I'm trying to create an epub where a part title will be shown on an empty page at the bottom right of the screen, aligned at the very bottom-right and expanding upwards and leftwards as needed... This would be very easy using CSS absolute positioning but this doesn't work with ADE....

I also tried using tables... setting the height at 100% (or even 800px since that's the height of most reader screens) with floating:right and vertical-align:bottom... but that doesn't work either with ADE....

Anybody knows how to do this within the constraints of the epub specs and ADE ?

Cheers

There's no concept of a screen in ePUB currently, other than setting the margins with @page, so I'm afraid it's not possible.

You can use an image with the type in correct position then drop the image in as a full page

Send email to Liza Daly (liza@threepress.org) and ask her why she couldn't see fit to include this very reasonable design element in her specifications for ePub 3.

Haha...I'd love to know if you get a reply...

Actually that isn't a bad idea...

Maybe the mods should contact her and a couple of other "Leaders" and hold a Q+A here on this site...
