We’re happy to announce Vellum 1.3.2, a small update with fixes and a few gifts as well:
Snowflake Heading Style
Getting ready to publish a holiday-themed book? Add a touch of winter with a new snowflake heading style:
To use this heading style, select Kindred as your Book Style, then find the snowflake among options for Heading. A new snowflake Ornamental Break is also available, and can be used with any Book Style.
If you’re putting together a multi-author box set, you can now credit the author of each Volume, including their name on the Volume’s title page and in the Table of Contents:
You can add an author to a Volume just like a subtitle, using the Heading gear menu. More details can be found in our guide to creating box sets with multiple authors.
Credit Translators, Illustrators, and others
Publishing a foreign edition and want to credit the translator? Or want to list the illustrator of the artwork in your book? You can now include contributors like these on your book’s title page:
Contributors are added the same way additional authors are, using a new popup to define their role. More details can be found in the help page for Book Info.
This update is available to Direct users today. If you are reading this on your Mac, you can click Check for Updates to download it now, or use the item of the same name in the Vellum menu. If you downloaded Vellum from the Mac App Store, this update will be available after it is approved by Apple (a process that typically takes about a week).
