  1. Hi, just purchased your ebook on author however I am importing intro media into it and after resizing onto author screen I still cannot get it play as the full screen on ibook, from iMovie I exported it as m4v movie but still does not cover the full screen like your intro ,is the problem in author or iMovie,

    Tks Ron Ritter

    • I wish I had an answer for you. You say it’s not fullscreen when you test it in iBooks on an iPad?

      Also, you mentioned resizing…when you drop in the intro media, you shouldn’t need to resize it. Are you following the instructions in Chapter 8? Not sure why you’re having that problem.

  2. On page 126 of Mac OS Lion (Visual Quickstart Guide) in “To add a message’s sender to Address Book,” step 2 says, “Click the From name at the top of the message window to display a menu of options.” It doesn’t do so.
