It is possible to export your book as a PDF file and print it.
Of course, you lose all the lovely audio and video if you do this, but if you've got a simple text/image book then it can be fun to print it.
Here's how you do it:
- From your bookshelf, click on the Share button beneath your book.
- Choose Print.
- You'll see a message saying 'Preparing to print' - the larger the book, the longer this will take.
- Once it's ready, you'll see a Print dialogue screen (this will vary depending on what computer you're using). From here, you'll have the option to connect to a printer to print the book, or export it as a PDF.
