Same here, but only on my Mac Pro. On my MacBook Pro it does run OK.

Somehow rotated book title 90 degrees and can't get it back :(
Tips and Tricks

You probably selected another layout by mistake, one with vertical title. Look in the upper left corner for the layouts.

BookSmart & Mac OS X Peopard NOT

Brian,

Perhaps I wasn’t answering you, but the original poster… He said “I just installed Leopard on my Mac this afternoon and just tonight I opened up BookSmart to continue editing on a book I am making. I opened the book and tried to input some text and BookSmart crashed.” I had the same experience (Booksmart crashing with Leopard) with Booksmart 1.9.1, but 1.9.2 works fine now.

The latest version of Booksmart (1.9.2) seems to work fine with Leopard. I have no problems changing text.

Yep, you can. Just copy the files to the same directory on the other computer, start Booksmart and it will find them without any problem. You didn’t say if you use a PC or a Mac. On a Mac it is home/library/application support/booksmartdata.

Sigh, once again The Blurberati neglected to mention the critical need for backing up,

Doesn’t that apply to updating ANY program and ANY file? If you don’t make daily backups of your files, not just your Booksmart files but ALL your files, you are asking for trouble. Don’t blame Blurb if that trouble finally arrives…

On my Powerbook G4 this version runs fine, but on my PowerMac Quad G5 it caused three kernel panics in a few hours…

I run Booksmart without any problems on a 1920×1200 pixels display on my Macintosh.
