  • To set up custom numbers, first click the Edit icon for the book you want to have custom numbering.
  • On the “Details” screen, scroll down to the bottom. 
  • Click the slider neck to “Custom chapter numbering” so that it appears blue / the circle is to the right side of the slider. This indicates custom chapter numbering is now ON.
  • Now, when editing chapters, a new text box appears above the box for entering a chapter title. This new box is labeled “Custom numbering (Optional).”
  • In this box, enter up to 25 characters that describe this chapter. They do not have to be numbers. Example uses for this box include: Content Advisory, Prologue, Part 1: Chapter 7, Glossary, Act 2: Scene 3, etc.
