BookBildr New Features Round-up: Preview, Emoji Support and Gift Cards

Dear Bookbuilders,

today we’re excited to give you a round-up of new features that a lot of you have been asking for. You asked – we listened! Here’s what’s new:

Book Preview

BookBildr preview

Want to get an idea of how your book will look in print? With the new Preview feature, you can. You’ll see your book in spreads as opposed to separate pages in the BookBildr editing tool and you can turn the pages by clicking on a corner of a page. Keep in mind the following formatting guidelines:

  • the first page of the book design is the front cover
  • the last page of the book design is the back cover (if you have an even number of pages, otherwise the back cover will be white)
  • the second page of your book design will be printed on the first available page on the left. For softcovers and layflat hardcovers, that’s the inside of the front cover. For hardcovers, it’s the first available inner page on the left (the inside of the cover is white)
  • If you’re working on a softcover, remember that the page before last of your book will be printed on the inside of the back cover

More info in the FAQs.
