    iBooks Uthor

    Has anyone tried out iBooks Author yet? If so, how effective is it at incorporating math?

    The first texts in the new version of iBooks don't use very complicated math---at most fractions, exponents, greek letters, and the like. I haven't seen integrals and things of that nature.

    But I am hoping----.

    This is from the Help menu.

    Use the Characters window to insert special characters, such as mathematical symbols, letters with accent marks, emoticons, arrows, and other dingbats. You can also use this window to enter Japanese, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, and Korean characters, as well as characters from other languages.

    If you’ve installed MathType (a third-party application for creating mathematical expressions and equations), you can open it within iBooks Author.
    Looks like you can do about anything you want, if you can use MathType.

    No math involved, but I've been working on an iBooks Author book. Hoping to be done in another couple weeks.

    Hi. I just finished making a book with ibooks author. I used a template I found in iTunes and adjusted it for my work. I have symbols on there that I copied and pasted. So they're like images. Didn't use any high math so didn't look into that area. Hope this helped.
