"BORDER" tool will not work
BookSmart

I think on some types of pages (ie. those with bleeds) the border tool will not work.  I think that’s probably logical.  I’ve used the border tool on some of my pages.

Sometimes backup/export doesn't work.
BookSmart

It seems that backup export works randomly.  I have been able to use it before, but about half the time it just exits the backup process without giving the progress bar.  I like to back up my books to several locations: my wifes computer on the network, my USB drive and a to second hard drive on my system. It looks like it remembers it has backed up once and will not do it again. 

What gives?

True font size
BookSmart

If I type text in at 12 pt. font size is that the true size that will display on the published book?  It appears that my fonts are larger than 12 pt in a page with 2 columns of text in a large format landscape.  Also it appears smaller than 12 pt in a 7" square book that I had printed as a test.  

I guess I really want to know what is a reasonable size font for readibility with a lot of text?  I have seen mention of 9 pt fonts, but that seems very small to read.  Maybe its my over 40 year old eyes that are the problem.
