This video talks about the basics of using Sophie Server: first, going through starting the Sophie Server application, then going through Sophie Server's web interface, and finally looking at how you can use Sophie Server to upload and download books from within Sophie Author and Sophie Reader.
This demo shows how to make a new book in Sophie. To make a new book, press command/control-N or choose File > New Book. You'll be asked to set the title of your book, as well as its width and height. You can change these settings later by going to File > Book Properties.
This demo shows you how to use browser frames. Browser frames allow you to embed a web browser pointed to a specific URL as a frame in your Sophie book. Browser frames work just like any other frame in Sophie, so you can treat them like any other frame: they can be rotated, given backgrounds and borders, or resized as you like.
This demo shows how to set the page appearance in a Sophie book using the page appearance HUD. The page appearance HUD lets you put a border on your book; you can also choose a background of a solid color, a gradient, or an image.
This demo explains how to use page templates in Sophie. Page templates are fairly simple: to save a page as a page template, click the "+" halo and give your page template a name. (You can also choose which elements of the page to use.) To apply a page template, drag it from the library tab onto the page of the book or the page in the page preview palette.
Frame templates allow you to save properties of frames for reuse. You might use frame templates if you have several different frames in your book that you want to look exactly alike. Frame templates allow you to do this quickly.
