The basic dimensions of the book. These relate to the closed end format. The inner book thickness also controls the available bindings and page quantity.
The inner book has a minimum width and height of 2 cm and a maximum width and height of 50 cm.
Depending on the inner book thickness, different bindings are available.
Depending on the selected binding additional settings are available.
If you choose “hardcover”, you can adjust the rim width of the cover and its material. The endpapers connect the book block with the cover and can be hidden inside the spine. The headband is the small, colored cord, which is glued to the top and bottom of the spine.
Textures are basic picture files you export from your favorite layout application as individual pages.
The textures that are used to render translucent pages are mapped on the backs of the visible pages. The print image of these pages are being superimposed depending on the grammage.
Example: the open book should display the pages 74 and 75.
Texture left visible page: page 74
Texture right visible page: page 75
Texture left page shining through: page 73
Texture right page shining through: page 76
Once you have the textures loaded, it may take some time until the view is refreshed.
For the cover view textures of covers are required. When using soft- and hardcover binding you need to load a texture for the spine as well.
The colors of the previous and following pages can be set separately. This tints the pages as a whole.
For irregularly colored pages in the book block, the color probability must be set high. As with the fully tinted pages you can choose different colors for pages before and after the visible pages. The chosen color can also be mixed with random colors.
The slider “Paper type” controls many properties that affect the appearance of the paper significantly. Depending on the setting the paper varies from highly structured to ultraglossy.
The grammage can be set individually for both the inner book and the cover and it affects the transparency of the paper and by that the visibility of the print on the back of the visible pages.
