    3. An explanation on how you made the toc with the hyperlinks would've been helpful.

    Thanks, Kyle! I was wandering around the apple tutorials and finally gave up and found you on YouTube. It's the basics, just what I was wondering about. You answered my 'beginner' questions.

    Hy, Kyle! Nice work you have put up here, on your book and on your blog! Congrats!! Thanks a lot for sharing and helping us!!! Would you mind answering some doubts? Would the Page ePub template work also for Smashworld? If not, what could be done about this?? What about the cover? Is it uploaded as an independent file? I've noticed it is NOT included on your formatting file… Thank you again!
