Extra pages appearing, can't get rid of them
Book Design and Imaging

Hello,
My wife and I are making a huge book to put together our trip around the world we did last year. We’re finally done, but we are having a super frustrating problem. When we put a few 2 page spreads (4 in total), we now have 7 empty pages that we cannot delete, but we don’t have pictures to put there. We push delete but they don’t go away! How can we get rid of them?

What is wrong with BLURB, I mean honestly, this is the worst!
Book Design and Imaging

I am trying to load my book onto BookSmart and it simply will not work.  I don’t see how anyone could possible get this to work, because, IT DOESN’T.  I spend a few hours following the instructions and making each chapter a seperate .doc document with the margins recommended.  I loaded them into BookStupid and there were different spaces in between each line randomly inserted throughout the document.  If I tried to change anything, huge gaps would appear in the text that could not be taken out.  There is no way to justify the text, ie make it look like a real book, so basically trying to publish it is a waste of time and money.

 I wrote to support and they said to try it with copy and paste on a new document without anything set on the page.  This almost worked, although there is still no way to justify the text.  When I try to select a whole page and make a change, it thien unselects and you can’t justify even when you select "justify", so what the hell is the point of that!?  

 This is by far the worst program I have ever used, I honestly have never been so frustrated with a computer program in my whole life, and I don’t see how anyone could ever be happy when trying to prin a text only book.  Is there anyone who has actually had a decent result with this horrid program?  Is it possible to make a professional looking text?
