FIXED LAYOUT eBOOK CONVERSION
Need Fixed Layout?
Let King Rush Publishing create Fixed Layout files especially for Apple Books.
What is Fixed Layout?
Standard eBooks (ePub and .mobi) feature a dynamic (flowable) layout for text and images. This means that your eBook will look different when viewed on different eReaders.
Fixed Layout files quite literally “affix“ images and text to exact spots on each electronic page–just like their printed book counterparts—so that they look the same, regardless of which reader you use.
Does your eBook need a Fixed Layout?
Most eBooks do not require a Fixed Layout file. Fixed Layout files are only needed when it’s important that the images and text appear in a specific and consistent way.
These books are usually good candidates for a Fixed Layout conversion:
- Illustrated children’s books
- Coffee table books
- Graphic novels
- Textbooks and technical manuals
- …and any book that relies on a heavily-designed, static presentation, full-page images, or text that overlaps with images.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Unlike a PDF, a Fixed Layout book is a true eBook. It uses the ePub file format and can be sold and purchased through online eBook retail stores. Fixed Layout eBooks utilize two-page spreads and the page turn animations in the iPad to give you the look and feel of holding a real book in your hands. PDFs, on the other hand, cannot be purchased through the online bookstores. You can view and save a PDF on your device, but it does not have the full display capabilities of a Fixed Layout eBook.
At this time, King Rush Publishing is only offering Fixed Layout for Apple Books. Our team is working to expand fixed layout to more partners soon, though.
We suggest including information in your book descriptions that specify your title is fixed layout, in order to avoid any customer confusion.
