How do I customise the ReadCloud bookshelf?

You can re-position your system clouds, change the tile size, hide empty clouds and more through the bookshelf setting.

ReadCloud enables you to customise your bookshelf, to make it easier for you to navigate and find the content you're looking for.

If you have lots of content in your Class Cloud, you can switch between grids or rows to make it easier to see what's inside your Cloud. Click the row icon in the top right of the bookshelf to switch between row view and grid view
