To access the shapes, click the + button in the toolbar and then switch tabs from Media to Shapes.

In Book Creator for iPad, you'll find this under the + button, then ...More > Shapes.

Click on a shape to add it to the page. Once added, it can be resized using the blue handles around the shape, or the green handles for rotation or other manipulation. Or you can click on the Inspector (i) button in the toolbar to:

  • Change the colour of the shape

  • Add a shadow

  • Add a border (with further options to change the colour and size of the border)

  • Move the shape back or forward

  • Delete the image

Speech bubbles and thought clouds

If you add a speech bubble or cloud, you can add text to it by double-clicking inside the bubble and typing. When you click on the Inspector you'll see the option to edit text settings too. This also works for square/rectangles and circles.

Bonus shapes! Noun Project

In Book Creator online, you'll see that you can search for shapes beyond the original set (using text or your voice). The shapes available here are provided by our integration with the Noun Project. You'll need a premium subscription to access these, but with that you'll get access to over 2 million shapes and icons!
