    1. First, the sharing screen on the source device cannot be closed. Second, the other device must be in same network with the source device.

  5. How can I share a book I have created with my students in a webpage such as a Google Site so that they can read it directly without having to download the file and then also download an epub reader?

  6. My students created great books, but the error message is that the file is too large - is there a way to compress these files in order to save them? I was not aware that there was a limit to file size.

    1. If you are using older version of iOS and older iPad/iPhone model, iBooks may not open large book properly. Therefore, CBB will prompt a warning message. You still can generate the book. If you are using the latest version of iOS and iPad/iPhone model, iBooks should be able to open it properly.

  7. Hi,
    I'd like to have further informations about TouchAppCreator.
    My daughter wrote a book in the style of "Bokks whom you a the Heroe". I'm creating it withCBB using anchor Bookmark.
    First : Will TouchAppCreator be able to import my book from CBB ?
    Second : I'd like to avoid the navigation pages by pages. The reader should be using only links that lead to anchor bookmark. Is-it possible with TouchAppCreator ?

    Thanks
    Philippe - @Philou39

    1. 1. TouchAppCreator can import EPUB from CBB.
      2. However, TouchAppCreator did not support anchor bookmark.

    2. Thanks for the reply.
      For anchor bookmark, I will use hypelinks to pages instead.
      Best

  9. Hi,
    I have two questions
    1. I have been using air drop with my students to share chapters and then merge. Some students work but others don't and when they select "preview" for a merged booked it just gives us a spinning circle. Is this is a known error? Why do some iPads merge correctly and others dont? All on the same IOS

    2. When I air drop my chapter to my laptop from CBB app to import in iBooks Author it just gets stuck and doesnt import. Why?
