Captions to photos?
Blurb through Lightroom is the most maddening software I have ever encountered. The same keystrokes produce a different result about half the time. I have learned enough work-arounds that I am proceeding with my book, except for one page. This page is laid out just like all the rest (four photos per page with short Photo texts under each photo). I completed this page then realized I needed to edit the text. I cannot highlight the text, change the words, add words, size of type, nothing. The tool is just turned off. Also, the "Type" panel on the right of the screen is greyed out when I open this page (none of the others). I suspect this is at the root of the problem. Anybody know how revive this function?
If Bookify works like the Lightroom version of Blurb, the way you add captions under each photo is to Command/click (Mac) on the photo, which will bring up a box below the photo that says "Photo Text". Highlight those words, delete, type in your text, and use the "Type" function to manage the text. If the text hops between the photo below and inside the photo above when you try to position the text, it is because the text box is too big to fit. Use "Baseline" under "Type" to shrink the box, then just drag it where you want to position it.
