BookSmart

Importing PC books into MAC

hi

has anyone tried to import a book started on a PC (windows XP) onto a Mac (leopard)? I can see the files on my mac, but booksmart doesn’t recognize them as book files. hoping i don’t have to start over.

additional problem – re-installed booksmart on my PC (just to print out hard copies) and i can’t import those files, either. really, REALLY don’t want to have to start over. help?

Hi ternerd,

Please note that IMPORT will work only on book files that have been EXPORTED. Please go back to your PC, select OPEN BOOK, choose a book project you wish to transfer, and open it. Then, please go to BookSmart’s FILE menu, select EXPORT, and save the exported file to your desktop. Then, transfer that exported file to your MAC by whatever means you wish (USB drive, for instance) and copy the exported file(s) to your Mac desktop. Then, use BookSmart’s IMPORT feature to import those projects, one at a time. 

If this still isn’t working, please contact tech support (click here)
and we’ll work to straighten this out for you as promptly as possible.

Best regards,
Jeremy
