BookSmart

RE: Latest software update

I just installed the latest version of booksmart wanting to use some new layouts on a book i am working… however I do not see any new layouts.  I checked the ‘about booksmart’ and it appears i have the latest installed (1.9.1.20466).  How do I find the new photo layouts for the 8X10 landscape book?  Did the install go wrong? Or are new layouts not available for this book?

SamanthaM;

The new layouts are only available for NEW book projects started in 1.9…

If you are importing an existing project started in r1.8, then the new layouts are not available!

Reason apparently is because of the change in the design of BookSmart & incompatibility between release!

Hope that helps…

Cheers;

Lee

I haven’t tried this but what happens if you export and then import the same book?

 

What a bummer this is.  I have a 250 page project that I would love to add a few more pages to with the new format!

I just downloaded the new version and can’t find one of my n=books, done this last summer.  And there doesn’t appear to be any way to get it from Blurb’s site.  Anyone else had this problem?  Anyone else found a solution?  Thanks.  Roger

I had the same issue – simple workaround.

Just change the template and change it back (you might need to select a text template instead of a  photo and vice versa)

You might still have some issues – there are problems with text size for example – some simply will not be accepted, no matter what you do!

Interesting workaround. We’ll try to replicate that here at Blurb HQ.
