[bksvol-discuss] Re: Part 1, Chapter 1 and Point Size

Per engineering, there must be 2 points between font sizes to recognize them as headings. Recipes would still be navigable, if you put them at the 14 point like the sections and subsections per your example. It is just that sections, subsections and recipes would all be at the same level.

Thanks Melissa. That makes sense, but it does leave individual recipes
without a navigable bit. Is there such a thing as 13 pt. type so the recipe
titles can be differentiated slightly from the body of the text? Regards,
Kim.

Kim,
Here is what I do, and what was confirmed by Carrie yesterday.
Title of book 20 pt
title of parts 18 pt
title of chapters 16 pt
title of sections within chapters 14 pt
According to Carrie, there can only be 4 levels of headings, and the title
of the book should be the largest with the other 3 for sections within the
book. Unfortunately, this means that, in your example, sections, subsections
and recipes should all be at the same level, if you want them to be
navigable. Now, if there are no parts, but chapters with sections and
subsections, you could have chapters at 18, sections at 16 and subsections
at 14.

I wish to pose a hypothetical question here. Let's say someone is proofreading a cookbook with parts, chapters, sections, sub-sections, and recipes. Given bookshare's style requirements and the concern for navigability of daisy books, how large would you put the font size on individual recipes, assuming regular text size is 12 pt. type? Regards, Kim Friedman.

Hi Ann,

They can work, but you have to be certain of what you're trying to
achieve.
Look at Melissa's note on this subject from earlier today. She described the problems using those styles as you described much more clearly than I ever could.

I don't personally use those styles. I Select each heading, one at a time as I find it, either with find and replace, or when reading, and go into the format menu and enlarge it as necessary. Title 6 points larger than the text of the book, chapter headings 4 points larger than the text of the book, and sections within chapters 2 points larger than the text of the book. I think you might be able to make headings work, but am not completely sure. But I know Melissa had it all worked out. And she did post here with what she discovered.

Happy proofreading.

Mayrie

Hi Mayrie,

So you're saying that the styles in Word don't work? If they don't, that's cool, and I won't use 'em. Just want to be clear.

Ann P.
