Video tutorial 2 – Making page links and hiding links

Video tutorial 3 – Show what page we’re on

Next steps – now we are ready to start designing our eBook.

  1. Plan the content:
    1. Title page
    2. What’s on each page
  2. Create pages by editing each backdrop
  3. Add more pages – you will then need  more page number sprites with the code (you can just duplicate ones you already have and change their costumes, edit the code)
