Your autosave simply doesn't work reliably

Despite the voluminous false claims that the book is regularly autosaved, this simply isn’t true. For the 4th or 5th time, Blurb crashed while editing & I lost work. This time it was almost 30 minutes of work. So frustrating.


The books are high quality. The fulfillment is great. Prices are a touch on the high side but that’s fine. The software? It’s maddening. I won’t use it again, no matter how simple. Next book will be an InDesign affair, then I’ll figure out if it makes sense to stick with Blurb.


And the captcha here? Unreadable. Takes me 5 times on average. Turn it on for your staff to post & you’ll figure out how quickly it gets frustrating.

Hi jakerome,

Under normal circumstances BookSmart’s auto save feature should work fine. I’m more concerned that it’s crashing when using the "find" option. If you contact support, let them know about this post so we can solicit your file and hopefully log a bug against this crash.

And yes, even staff must enter the captcha.
