FONT....any way to set it for entire book?
Tips and Tricks

 

I’ve published a few novels and have to go page by page to get it into comic sans ms in #11 font size.  Is there any way I can set it at the beginning and have it stick for the entire book?  It’s awfully time consuming to highlight a page and change it, first the font, then the font size.

Anybody??

Could it be my Computer is squeezing the BookSmart pages?
Tips and Tricks

 

You should see the mess I see when I get up my BookSmart pages.  The column on the left which contains pictures I’ve uploaded is too wide and the bigger part (to the right) seems to have migrated so far to the right that all the editing functions aren’t in reach.  In fact, now the little gizmo at the bottom that enlarges or diminishes the size of the pages (when you look at them) is covering up the button for ‘edit’ so I can’t click on it, as all I get are changes in the size of the page displaying.

Could it be something I can fix by reformatting my computer screen or what I wonder.  Has anyone else ever experienced this?  It makes it almost impossible to construct a book.

EDIT page all schrunched up....
Tips and Tricks

For the last few months I’ve found that when I edit a page, the edit icons (as well as everything else) is waaaay over to the right hand side & I can’t even reach some of them.

I tried to drag the edge over so that the column on the left was thinner (it’s now very wide) & the right hand column wider, but nothing happened.  HELP!!

Tips and Tricks

I’m sure that somewhere there’s a tutorial on how to ‘set’ a font face, but I’m not sure just where.

I want my type in comc sans ms, and every time I start a new page I have to set it again and again.  Where’s the gizmo that lets a person set it once and for all?

Can you RE-WORK a book & publish it a second time?
Tips and Tricks
<h1>Thanks, Tony.  I may just put 2nd Edition on the slightly different ones, or, as you suggested, put a new description in Book Summary. 
Anyway, it’s good to know it can be done.  Wahooo! </h1>

Tips and Tricks

I’ve had several books published and am very satisfied with the results.

However, I’m curious:  since the BookSmart is still available to me and I could edit it, could I make some changes & re-submit the book?  It sure would make it easier than beginning another book with the improvements.  Anybody ever do this???

anyone already make a 360 - 400 page large format book?
Tips and Tricks

Verena,

I made a 428 page book (hard bound) and it’s perfect, no problems at all.  Not sure if such a large book would do as well if it were soft bound, but it would also probably be fine.
