Bookify

And no I did not press the duplicate button, I made a point of not doing so. This is not a new book, it is an edited and updated version of my old one.

Bookify

I opend my book Vistas today becasue I wanted to edit and update it.

 

However, I now see that a new book was created instead, instead of my book just showing up as having been edited. I am  not in a position to order a comltely new book and I wouldn’t have done this if Ihad known this would happen. I thpught it was only with Booksmart you had to ‘épay’ for each edit.

 

What’s going on????

If I create an e-book out of my book, do I lose my old book?
Book Design and Imaging

I know it’s a silly question but I did leave one or two pages in my book blank on purpose for example, and would not want to lose these….

Is gold available with bookfify?
Book Design and Imaging

Hmm. I tried to get the values you suggested, but found it impossible, just working with the colour square! I found other interesting colurs, but not the one I wanted. Isn’t there another way of attaíining this colour?

I see I can choose from a whole spectrum to design my book coveron Bookify, but what I would actuallylike is a luxurious Klimtian gold.

 

CanI get that on Bookify?

Dont copy and paste!!!
Bookify

Well I have expereinced difficulties like this too, and contacted Customer Support, though I don’t think they really understood what I was on about.

 

My solution is often to delete a page where there is problems in my being able to delete any page where there is some some invisible text I cannot actually remove, then start with a new page from scratch.

Limitations of Bookify
Bookify

There are less fonts, less options in layout, but…the beauty of bookify is that you can edit at leisure and not have to relaunch the whole book all over again, should you wish to revise. That to my mind has a lot of advantages over Bookify.

 

Booksmart is probably better for written, well, books, rather than to put together artworks,. The exception is my tarot book, though I may decide to be generous and include more of the artworks on that in time, too

Well I got it....
Ordering and Shipping

….and where I did get it right, it looks great.

 

But – a proof it will always be now, andnothing more. Despite my fine-tooth combing it for typos – so I thought – there were still some. And some photos did not come out as well as they could have because I neded to zoom them differently. Or use a more even resolution.

 

So – I was delighted with what I got, and mortified at the ame time. I did several changes to the book after I got it, corrected my mistakes and added more.

 

Hope my next proof is better!

What have you done with my edits????
Bookify

I don’t want the last changesd to be published – I tried to copy my rext so I can send to someone who has promised to check for typos. But 3 pages of text disappeared, then on a third, the the message came up, no matter what I tried to do, that the font was too big!!!!

 

What could be wrong?? I want the book to stay the same it was. I just wanted it to be perfect and typo-free. 

 

Also I was sure that I had saved it as a soft-cover book, but now it is hard cover.

 

Can you please herlp I do not want all my work to be in vain.

Book Design and Imaging

That is the headache I have at the moment.

 

I want a book of my art works that will really wow people – there is a someone I know who might – if I get a book number too – be able to get my book into a shop. And I want to leave a copy witha gallery here.

 

But for those who have ordered and seen afterwards ‘in the flesh’ – what do you reckon? Does the written text look ok?

 

Feedback is greatly appreciated:

How can I control number of pages added?
Bookify

Hello there.

 

I woukd like to add a few more pages of text to my book or artworks called ‘Jpourney of the Pearl’ but whenever I try to add two pages, I end up not with 2 but 10 or 20 pages more and I cannot delete these spare new pages!!

 

Neither can I delete the photos I do not want to use, where I think the problem is. 

 

Any advise please?

Problems with resolution of pics
Bookify

Hmm. Mostof my images are at about 300 dpi’s but my latest images were edited with gimp, after I lost photoshop. And these later ones do not look quite as smooth.

 

So 100 dpi is definitely too small? Nothing comes up when Iposted oneor two lower-resolution pictures, which I don’t have any more because I either soldthem or gave them away,  but anyway…I can see whay that would be a question…

Hi everyone - first attempt, feedback appreciated
General Interest

Anyway, I got feedback from someone esle to the effect that my chosen fontwas not clear enough, so now Ihave changed it.

 

The next question is how to add still more text, without finding out that Bookify had inflated my page numbers to several more pages. I cannpt delete the images I originally uploaded and don’t now want to use, no matter how much I want to….

Thanks Bev

 

It was important to get the thing up and I hope I wil have time to keep on tidying it up until it looks right.

 

I chse the font because I thought it looked ‘arty’ but may choose another for the sakeof clarity.

 

Thanks for dropping by!

Hmm…I wonder what could be wrong?

 

You will find me in any case if you make a search for ‘Lynda Stevens.’
