10 Process at a Glance

The book creation and publishing process in Pressbooks consists of five major tasks. Depending on the type of book you are creating and the level of involvement you wish to have, the process may include a number of smaller details as well.

Once you have signed in, you will move through the following steps:

  1. Add a new book
  2. Add content to the book
  3. Select a theme
  4. Apply a license
  5. Publish and export

If your project is collaborative, be aware that Pressbooks does NOT allow synchronous co-editing. Only one person at a time can be actively making changes in Pressbooks.
