Creating Multiple Book Sizes without starting over from the beginning

I have published several books using the largest and most expensive format. All I want to be able to do is have multiple size formats including hard and soft covers without having to re-create each book from the beginning. There has to be an easy way. I tried the feature that asks if you want to make a copy of the book using the same library of photos but it does not put the photos in the same order and the original finished book.

Help I am going nuts!

Thanks for the suggestion. I gave it a try and it did not work. Here is some more info that might help. Let’s assume I had 100 photos in the library but I have only used 80 of them in the book. Also assume when I loaded them into the pages of the book they were loaded in a different order that they appear in the library.  When I go to File/ New book with this library …..and then select the new size / format it produces the book but does not load the 80 photos that were used in the original book. The only way to get the 80 photos into now the new format is to drag them one by one and try and remember the order and go throught all the resizing…etc.

The other option is to you autoflow but this does not work as it loads all 100 photos and in the order that they appear in the library. Hope this helps better describe the problem.
