| In a previous tutorial, we set a few general options for our project. These settings will be carried over to each page of our book app. However, there are also several options that must be considered for each individual page of our book.|
There are a few page properties that can be different for each page. We will come back to discuss each of these as we encounter them. For now, we need to consider the option to enable the swipe gesture for page navigation. Although all the pages of our book will be using the Back and Next buttons, some authors may have reason to use the swipe gesture on certain pages. Therefore, Kwik gives you the option to set this feature for each individual page.
Now we need to turn off the swipe gesture for the cover page. Still working in the Project and Pages category, click the Page Properties icon (second icon in the first row of tools under the Categories row) to open the Page Properties dialog box.
Our next step is to set the Layer Properties for the background layer on the cover page. Select the bg_cover layer in the Layers panel. Remember that this is a solid graphic that covers the entire layer, so we will tell Kwik to export this image as a jpg, which has a much smaller file size than the default png format.
Now would be a good time to preview our app and see if Kwik gives us any error messages. In the Project Info section of the Kwik panel is a large rectangle next to the name of your project. Click the rectangle to preview your app.
