Tips and Tricks

Precisely: "click inside the footer ". No footers, no page numbers. Add footers?

Mindless. It also says, helpfully, “Hint: Adding page numbers should be one of the last steps in your book-design process, …” – well durrr. But footers ? Ah well no, you have to ADD THOSE FIRST. Cretinous.

Price rise
Ordering and Shipping

Wait a minute: I am awaiting a proof copy of a book which cost £13.95 (120 pages small square standard + obscene postage charge).

That was the price last week. I just checked, to place a volume order, and the price has gone up to £14.95. That’s a 7% increase in a week. What’s going on here?!

Please someone tell me I’m wrong. Because where I’m sitting this looks like a major failure in basic core functionality.

Re-Lock flowing text box after resizing
Book Design and Imaging

This seems to be a mega fail in Booksmart. I also am trying to get text to flow between boxes on a page. I read numerous posts like this and the only replies from Blurb are defensive and tetchy to the point of rudeness. Simple function, major shortcoming, it would appear.
