Part Settings

Overview

To access Part Settings, open Project Navigator and select a Part.

Identification

The section accommodates information used to identify the Part.

SettingDescription
TitleIdentifies the Part in the Steelkilt user interface and will — depending on Formatting — be used for table-of-contents entries and the Part’s title page.

Part titles must be unique in the Project.
ImageAn optional image that will be displayed in the Part Summary Page of the Steelkilt user interface and included in the Part’s title page (below the Part’s number and/or title).

Lock Icon

A Part’s title page is represented by an XHTML Resource that is created during EPUB Generation. This Resource is accessible via the Code Editor. Switching from Project Navigator to Code Editor while viewing a Part will take you to the Resource (located within the XHTML rendition of your EPUB). If you edit the Resource, the Part Settings relating to Identification, Compilation and Linking will be disabled and the padlock icon on the top right will lock.

Click on the padlock icon to review the Part’s Resource.

Linking

The following settings help improve the quality of links to Parts.

SettingDescription
IdentifierA unique identifier for use in Markdown links that will ensure that the Part will be correctly linked during the EPUB Generation process.

The identifier will be included in any Markdown links that are created as a result of dragging a Part from the Project Navigator into a Document or Chapter.

You can also paste the identifier into Markdown links (as required):

[A Part Title](#48FF0411)

Tip

Use the above methods of linking Parts, rather than HTML <a> tags. Restructuring your Book may cause the paths of Resources associated with Parts, Documents and Chapters to change. Therefore, any pre-existing <a> tags that link the Part may be broken. While Steelkilt will detect problems with <a> tags, it cannot fix them automatically during EPUB Generation.

Title attributeNormally, when Steelkilt converts a Markdown link to an <a> tag, it will populate the <a> tag’s ‘title‘ attribute with the Part name. This setting will allow you to override this behavior and customize the value of the <a> tag’s ‘title‘ attribute.
