Getting Started... The Basics
Open NeoBook. Click on FILE (located in the upper left hand corner of your screen)... then click on NEW. A screen will pop up asking what size and number of colors you want to use.
Once you've made your selection... click on OK.
You will now see a blank screen. The default setup in Neobook... you will see two bars... Object List and Tools.Click on TOOLS to open that screen.
This is the TOOLS area.

I like to start my StoryBooks with the graphics. The graphics are created in another program... I like to use Paint Shop Pro from JASC. You may use any graphics program you enjoy. To insert the graphics... they can be imported by clicking on the GRAPHICS button.
When you click on this button... hold down your mouse in the area where you want the graphic to set on the page (don't worry... if you don't like where the graphics are when you set them... you can move them at any time.) an outline will appear...
I don't want the gray area... or the outline... I just want the graphic.
In the TOOLS... click on the top button that says SOLID...
Another screen will pop up... click on the H.
The gray area will now go away.
To remove the line... click on the next area in the TOOLS box.
Once the graphics are added... I like to add the TEXT next.
In the TOOLS box... click on the fonts area.
To pick a color for your font... click on the font color area in TOOLS.
In the TOOLS box... click on the TEXT button.
Hold the mouse down... and cover the area where you want your text to be located. Don't worry about it being exactly where you want it... or even the correct size... you can change that at any size.
The TEXT screen will appear.
Viola... you've got the beginnings of a pretty good story book... created by YOU!
There is soooooo much more with NeoBook that you can do. You can add animations... hotspots... popup pictures... use NeoBooks HELP files... download programs from others to see what can be done with NeoBook... some even share their source codes for creating special pages... projects. Use your imagination to create wonderful story books that you can share with others.
