The following is a list of available presentation metadata settings, with suggested implementation priority. It uses a simplified version of the form template markup used in Wikipublisher.

User experience

  • The author chooses an overall “look” — cover layout and chapter heads
  • The author then fills in a form (pick lists, radio and check boxes) to tailor presentation details
  • any presentation constraints in the choice of look cause the form to display the setting, but the author cannot change it
  • presentation settings not exposed for author customisation get default values assigned automatically
  • if in future PressBooks exposes more presentation options, this will not affect any existing books
  • to expose new presentation settings, an administrator ticks a check box on a form listing the available options

Style constraints

By default, any combination of metadata settings will work (although some combinations may be typographically questionable). However, when a book style file is specified, this constrains what metadata settings are allowed. For example, applying Fortress affects the following options:

  • pagesize: HU or TP only
  • fontset: kepler only
  • fontsize: 12pt only (smaller sizes produce too many characters per line)
  • cover: centre only
  • titlepage: ignored
  • chapterstyle: ignored
  • autonumber: 0 only
  • bookmarks: autonumbered only
  • cfloatstyle: shaded only (other options should work)
