Learn how to edit your hosted ebook.


As you edit your ebook, the online hosted ebook will be unaffected. Your readers will not see any changes, until you upload and publish your changes.

If you do not want the old version of your ebook to be online, until you finish updating it, then unpublish the old version.

Any changes to a chapter's contents may affect your readers' highlights, notes, and annotations in the same chapter. Other chapters will not be affected.
