Random addition of extra 200 blank pages at once.
BookSmart

Update: Support said that while you can update the program it will only work on new books, not the existing. Bad news. I thought a solution would be that I could just export it, update the program and then import it with a different file name. Can’t do that. They say it won’t work to fix the problem on an existing book. This makes me very unhappy. I understand programs go wacky sometimes but I have not seen an email to those who downloaded the program as a heads up. I get a lot of promo emails from Blurb.  It takes a long time to create a book with this system and the lack of communication to customers about program gliches is disappointing. There’s a trust issue here now that has to be considered when deciding which company I use for books. Do I start another book? Just not sure at this point.

So, I am basically done with this black and white text trade book using 3.2.0 and was making a few little text format tweaks. The spreads were locked. The book is 192 pages. Suddenly, this pop up comes up and says, warning, you are about to exceed the 450+ pages.  What? So I look and suddenly I’ve got over 200 additional blank pages that were inserted into the middle of this book willy nilly as I’m working on one little line!. Deleting them is taking a long time. How could this happen and is there a faster way to delete all these pages that a few at a time?
