Memento Yearbook helps you organize your book into sections, where you can group thematic pages together.
The book manager view will insert placeholder pages or warn you about missing pages that would prevent your book from being printed and bound correctly.
When you first access the Edit Book area, you will find a single blank page at the top - the Cover.
Book covers are designed across a single large page. Design the page as if the book was opened flat on a table.
When the cover is first opened in the Editor, you will see a single blank white canvas.
The lines in the middle of the page indicate the placement of the book spine. Spine width increases as the number of pages in the book increases, to accommodate the book's thickness.
The back cover is designed on the left side of the page, and the front cover is designed on the right side. When folded, the page wraps around your book.
Your book will usually start on a single right-side page, and end on a single left-side page. The first and last inside pages are flanked by the unprinted inside cover pages
The pages in-between the first and last page are made up of left-and-right facing pairs. Every left-side page needs a matching right-side.
(Note that some publishers may set your book up differently depending on their printing & binding method.)
In Memento Yearbook, the interior pages of your book start in the first section following the cover. You will see the first section called Intro when your book is created.
The first section in your book will start with a blank page - this is a representation of the blank inside cover page.
Add additional sections to your book, then pages within the sections.
Why work in sections?
- Sections help you organize your project in a flexible manner. At a glance you can see the progress on each section and how the pages relate to each other thematically.
- Sections can be reordered in your book, bringing any containing pages with them to a new position.
- Create sections early in your yearbook season to help you plan out your yearbook. Consult past yearbooks and your school calendar to look for recurring and special events, then create matching sections in your yearbook.
- You'll have less book management to do when your team is working on their pages - this is important because no one can work on pages when your book is checked out to manage its structure.
