An element refers to an indvidual chapter of your book or a piece of additional material such as a Dedication or Acknowledgments.
Many of the elements of your book will be created when Indie Formatting imports your manuscript. I can complete your book by adding elements like a Copyright page at the beginning of your book, or an About the Author page at the end.
Every element in your book has a type, such as Chapter or Acknowledgments. An element’s type affects how the element is formatted as well as the overall structure of your book.
If you’ve titled an element explicitly, then I will display its element type. Note: Numbered chapters will not display the element type since the presence of a number to the left of the title uniquely identifies the element as a chapter.
