Page Contents


The big book is a big writing book that supports up to 256 pages, 8 chapter tabs, per line text scaling and easy access to all the vanilla formatting options. The big book can be signed just like a vanilla writing book and it can be copied using the typesetting table and printing press setup, though due to complexity big books are saved as raw NBT data and as such are not editable outside of Minecraft.


Right click to open the GUI. Text scaling options are only effected per line as are any other formatting options. The “Reset” button will reset text formating (not including scaling) for the rest of the line it is used on. You can use the arrow keys to navigate up and down lines as well as clicking around with the mouse.

Be sure to click the “Save” button to save your work. Hitting esc to close the interface will not save work.

Click the “Sign” button to sign the book and disable editing. Just like a vanilla written book, this action cannot be undone, so be sure you have completed the book before you sign it.
