Template Typography Setup

IGP:Digital Publisher allows typesetting report values to be setup globally for an account.  Modified: 10 November 2013


IGP:Digital Publisher has advanced features in the IGP:Typography In the Browser module for typography reporting of the various standard typography features required in modern publishing.

These need to be set up once in the Account Template Manager. Note that these "in-house rules" apply globally for an account so are applied to all books.

This is a one-time account setup requirement.

Note that at this time these values are only used for Typography Reporting but in future releases will also be used to enforce the rules.
