A new version of BookSmart is ready for download!
BookSmart

Ok… I regret posting that now. I find the book in another location… strange that the library was in a new location, as usually when I upgrade it finds all the old books no problem.

 JUST ANOTHER CASE OF HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO BACK UP BEFORE YOU UPGRADE!

 

Thanks

A new version of BookSmart is ready for download!

I just upgraded… TWO BIG ISSUES, this on Vista.

1. Some of my BOOKS ARE GONE!

Luckily I have a backup, but when I try to open books from the library, they don’t open. What am I doing wrong here?! I have some files that are .jpgexport. Those I can open… but all the .book files do not open. And blurb does not seem to find the other books. What happened? How can I get these books back?  (Luckily, I backed up the one book I am working on so that I can keep going, but those that I did not have backups for, those just have the .book files and this new version cannot open them!)

 

2. My custom page layouts are gone.

So I was hoping to start some new books with custom layouts – but those are also missing. Where could those be? There is a file called CUSTOM.LAYOUTS.LAYOUT but I cannot open it with this new version. How do I get those back?!

Thanks for any help provided. Frown

binding of the Netherlands printer...
Book Printing

Unfortunately, I just got a big book, 350 pages, and the binding is shotty. The binding is already totally off and I can see sunlight through the other side. Disappointing. I live in Switzerland so I am assuming this is the Dutch printer. I have contacted support though and they are being very helpful. I will post on what happens.

 

My other books have been perfect until now.

Update on blog slurpers
BookSmart

My slurp worked today for Blogger. I am a bit peeved that I subscribed to the feed for this post and no one updated it to say that it works for blogger, but then again maybe I am an exception. Regardless, it hasn’t work for a week and now it just worked.

So if you fixed it – thanks!

Test drive the newest version of BookSmart
BookSmart

AW MAN! I am not happy either. While I do not have all the problems above, I am awaiting them. All I have noticed is that I have a lot of yellow shield signs with red exclamation points that I did not have before. Whatever is in this new release has made all my text blocks cut off and cause these errors.. I will have to go through and fix them manually I fear. I did not have these issues before. I wish I could go back.
