This is just a few things that may i suggest for making this fantastic concept a little easier.
1. We have a book preview – but what about a print preview – where we can print a few pages to make sure us noobies have it right !
2. The new Invite Contributors – my book is a collaberation of numerous photographers, is there a way that we could make into a PDF and email it to them for approval?
Just a few suggestions for maybe the next release of the prog
You actually can print your whole book as a low-res preview proof copy now (and we highly suggest doing so!) Or are you referring to printing an actual book as a proof copy? We recommend that too for large orders.
Do a search for PDF or CutePDF here in the forums and you should find more details for point 2. Macs will let you print to PDF and Windows requires something called CutePDF to do the same. It won’t be an editable file but you can pass it from one person to the next for review.
I did install CutePDF as a printer but when I print using that printer, only the text is shown. No photos what so ever. I ve also tried the Adobe Online PDF Desktop printer (Free trial) without any success (same result). Am I missing something here?
Alright. I’ll response to my self;-) I have read the fact more carefully:
"[...]Keep in mind that your PDF won’t include your book’s cover.[...]"
I was indeed printing my cover and only the cover (testing purpose). I didn’t think about printing some other page…
Now I ve tried with some other pages and it works like a charm (kinda slow however)
