Clipped text warnings.
BookSmart

I uploaded the latest version of Booksmart and it ruined my books. I have no way of editing my books now without completely redoing them.The new version cut of text, deleted backgrounds. It’s been a total nightmare and at the very least all I needed originally was one text page changed on the last page.I’ve asked Blurb staff to do this since my book was ruined by by Booksmart and they say they can’t edit text.Now I’m forced to reprint the uploaded version as is or redo all my books. Any help here Blurb?

Color Background Accuracy?
Tips and Tricks

Yes, my book had light tinted backgrounds and the colors were way off and my home printer did an almost perfect match. I couldn’t get answer as to how to remedy this problem so I decided to live with the printed colors and changed one very bad one making it more on the peach side because it went way too yellow. I think all the printing was shifting to the greens for the backgrounds and some of the pictures. Another problem was the trims were way off….margins large on the bottom and small on the top even though they were set up centered. I’m getting a reprint but I was not reassured that this wouldn’t happen again so I made the images slightly smaller so it wouldn’t look so much like a layout mistake. I’m waiting for the reprint.
