Known Issues:

  • The gap between angled books and stacks is not correct. I won't fix it 🙂

 

IMPORTANT

*** Configure your books using the Marionette instance provided in the document. Then, make a copy. Ungroup that copy to lock its values. Start over. This will speed up your workflow considerably and you won't have to wait for each Marionette instance to recompile ***
