Using bookleteer

Creating eBooks

  • How many pages can an eBook have?

    The maximum number of pages an A4/US eBook can contain is 38 content pages plus a front and back cover (10 sheets of A4 paper). The minimum number of pages an eBook can contain is 6 content pages plus front and back cover (2 sheets of A4 paper).
    (1 sheet A4 paper = 4 eBook pages)

    The maximum number of pages an A3/Ledger eBook can contain is 46 content pages plus a front and back cover (10 sheets of A3 paper). The minimum number of pages an eBook can contain is 6 content pages plus front and back cover (2 sheets of A3 paper).
    (1 sheet A3 paper = 4 eBook pages)

  • How do I know where the page breaks are going to be?

    When using the content editor, currently the only way to tell where page breaks will be is to generate your eBook and view the PDF. However, you can force page breaks in by using the 'Insert Page Break' button.
    If you need more control over your layout we suggest you use the bookleteer templates.

  • How do I add images to my content in the online Content editor?

    Your images need to be online to be added to the online content editor. We suggest uploading them to flickr.com. Once they are online, in the bookleteer online content editor click on the tree icon in the toolbar and enter the location of your image. Click 'insert'.

  • Why does bookleteer generate eBooks in both US letter and A4 format?

    There are variations in how content is formatted for these two different paper sizes. We prefer to generate both as you never know who is reading your book and which paper size they prefer.

  • Why does bookleteer generate eBooks in both Ledger and A3 format?

    Ledger is the US equivalent to the European A3 sheet size. By generating both your eBook can be printed out and made up by people no matter which paper size they prefer,

  • How do I know if it worked / when it is done?

    The page refreshes and a message appears at the top of the page with links to the files.

  • Where are the generated files stored / Where do the files go?

    The files will be placed in your default download folder on your computer.

  • I've printed my pages, how do I make them into an eBook?

    We've prepared videos to show how to turn your pages in eBooks. There is one video for each style of eBook. You can watch them at vimeo.com/channels/bookleteer/

Creating StoryCubes

  • What Size should my images be?

    A4 : 55mm x 55mm
    A3 : 82mm x 82mm
  • Do I have to upload 12 images?

    Upload 6 images if you want a single-sided StoryCube or 12 images if you want to have a double-sided StoryCube.

  • What is the difference between single-sided and double-sided StoryCubes?

    Single-sided cubes display 6 images and the reverse (inside) of the cube is blank.
    Double-sided cubes have images on both sides so you can make up the cube to display either the inside or the outside.

  • How do I print a double-sided cube?

    Print one side then turn the paper over and put it through the printer again to print the second side.
