Feature requests after designing a 90 page book
BookSmart

I would only add one other that I can think of – An Alternate Way to UPLOAD ie: thru Export – FTP or some other way as a backup.  i have beenr eading the forum posts and was unable to upload my 190 page book the first time due to a reported internet connection issue, finally managed to upload it….....  However there needs to be another way to upload the master file or an option to EXPORT FILE + FTP ??  My suggestions only.

Can't upload book
BookSmart

Hi Phil, this is obviously a very very common issue and I for onje can tell you first hand that it owuld have to eb the single most frustrating issue I have experienced using the Software.  My book was 190 pages and I had the same error message that you have. 

I can only tell you what happened from my perspective – For me I think it is the Internet service provider that I used becuase I tried to upload using the seme service providor on different computers and it would not upload, then as soon as I tried it again, it all worked.  But what a lot of mucking around.  So I suggest that you install the software on another computer ie: Friends and then try again.

Until Blurb realises that difficulties with uploading is costing them money and that there has to eb an alternative for example: Export Function to a file and then FTP the file – How easy would that be !!!

I can’t tell you why this does not work all I can tell you is that it worked for me eventually on another computer with a totally different service provider.  I tried eveything like removing firewall, Av, everything I could think of.  

needless to say this is a realy Pain !!  I will nto eb able to use the product any further becuase I can not get it to upload and have to always use a friends computer :) So all I acn do is wait and hopefull they put a new version out that will address this situation ! -Best of luck !
