Ben, it IS at 1024×768.  That’s the whole point!  I can’t access Booksmart anymore!

I can’t actually OPEN the new version after downloading it.  A dialog box appears, telling me to "reset my monitor’s bit depth to display 32-bit colour."

After searching round to see what that actually meant, I found that my older monitor didn’t have the option of upgrading to 32 bit.  It only allows 24 bit or 16 bit.  So, please BEWARE of this before downloading.  Check your monitor’s bit depth. A prior notice on the download page would have been helpful, Booksmart, if not downright mandatory. 

I am now left in the sorry situation where I can no longer access the book I have just published in order to make upgrades to it, so I’ve had it with Booksmart – I’m looking for another publisher.

Thanks Lee.

 It is an old monitor – second hand, at least!  Ah, well, seems I’ll have to try another program other than Booksmart.  Pity.

I’ve just upgraded to the latest Booksmart application, but it won’t open.  A dialog box opens, telling me that Booksmart needs to be able to display 32 bit colour.

I tried to reset my monitor, by going to Properties – Settings – Colour quality, but I find that I don’t have the choice of 32 bits.  My monitor only offers 24 or 16.  So, how do I resolve this, and open Booksmart?

Thanks for any help.
