03. Choose The Project’s Title and Format

First, choose your project’s title. This will help you find the project later, it will appear on the project’s title page, and in the file’s name.

Next, choose the file formats you want. This choice will affect the options on all subsequent steps, which is why it comes first (for example, the file format dictates what designs are available.)

Digital PDFs are intended for viewing on a computer, tablet or phone, but not necessarily for printing to paper. Usually includes working hyperlinks, ample colors, and other features that require a device.

Print-Ready PDFs are intended for printing on your home printer or with a printer service. Usually removes hyperlinks, avoids excessive ink use, and are designed for viewing the 2-page spread (using the front and back of a page).

ePub eBooks are for reading on phones, Readers, and computers. You can upload an ePub to Kindle Direct Publishing, Apple Books, Kobo, or any other online eBook marketplace. Note: the ePub format requires a purchase of a license.

If you intend to create your work in multiple formats, feel free to select more than one format here. Just realize that for each format you select there will be a few more steps, so you’re probably best only selecting the formats you really intend to use. If you change your mind later, you can come back to this step later and select additional formats.
