Several Content Questions

Cheryl Hi All,

I'm hoping that someone can help with a few questions that I have.  If any of this is covered in the tutorial, please don't waste your time, just point me there, ok? It will help if you know the directory in the tutorial.

First of all, I am working in Word.  I tried to do the Power Point Presentation, but it would not save in HTML.  I have not worked with either Word or PP much (A Word Perfect gal from the 70's)   .    Anyway, I did get my ebook to save in Word, but I would have liked to create something with a little pizzazz, you know, colorwise...no can do?

1.  If I put colored text boxes behind the text would html save the colors?  I didn't think of that until after creating the ebook.

2.  Does anyone know the trick to saving in html from PP?  Is there certain criteria which must be met to do so?  ie. the option was grayed, and not available to me after the first page was created.  So I moved to Word.

3.  In what type of a file are passwords to be stored?    Any file on pc?  How does the password thing work?  

4.  I have some marketing questions which seep over into technical also...lets say I have created my first ebook, which I have  ) , and I want to sell it in various ways, such as one read only, and one as a read and print version and maybe one that I can allow rebranding ...all the same ebook, but 3 separate capabilities.  I can do this, yes?  Do I have to give each a different name and create a new ebook from scratch to do this or is there a shortcut?

Thanks for taking a little time to answer, Thanks, Cheryl

EBookCompiler 1. Probably yes, try it on a test book

2. I don't know for sure - I thought there was a way to save an entire presentation into HTML.  Did you install the optional elements of PowerPoint on your system?

3. Try this tutorialwww.ebookapprentice.com/sell/cbpassword

4. Make the first ebook, then build it, and save. Next do new ESBN, change the output name, and anything else you want to change, and do Save as. Then  do new ESBN, change the output name, and anything else you want to change and do Save as.

Cheryl Thank you.  I'm sorry for all these questions at a busy time for you.  I am fairly anxious to get this moving. I will also look into the other options with ebooks that I was unaware of before this.  I just wanted to make and sell a little instructional ebook...didn't know I was entering a multifaceted business venture...I guess it can be what you want it to be.   Many thanks for your assistance.  Cheryl

bmaxey Forgive me, but if your goal is an HTML file, why not just use a web design program? I am a strong believer in using as few twists and turns as possible. Seems to me this might be a better idea. You can easily cut and paste the material from your PP into a simple web page layout program.

I use Word for documents, PP for presentations and web creation software for web pages. I never like converting this to that as something always goes funky.

Clarify for me please.
