Text Tip
BookSmart

About consistently frustrating tendency of BookSmart to throw extra linespaces into lyrics set up like poetry . . .

I suggest that you delete the tied text container and use an untied one. This wil permit to manage the text page by page wich won’t be difficult to do with poetry. Try to leave enough place to add new lines at the bottom of the page if ever you would need for it. Of course, you will have to compose page by page, but it won’t be frustrating any more.

Try this. Put your page in edit mode as wide as possible on your screen. Then capture the picture and save it under a pdf format or another format. Then use this picture where you want. Make test to be sure it works as you wish.

ornaments between text?
BookSmart

I think that the best way would be that you make your own template for that kind of page by using the « Page Edit » function. You will then be able to include two text containers and one image container in between. The following book have been made by using BookSmart uniquely (http://fr.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/2382826). This is a 360 pages book that gives you plenty of ideas for what you need. It took me one year of work to produce that book.

Suggestion of a way to take a look on the books
Book Design and Imaging

Hi all of you,

Sometimes, I would rather like to take a look over a book by viewing pages randomly instead of the first 15 pages. This could be a choice of the client. For many books, this way of looking would give a better idea of the book than the first 15 pages, mostly because half of the first 8 pages are blank pages. Il hope Blurb will consider this suggestion (easy to develop, I think).

If anybody agree with this suggestion, please mention it to Blurb.
