  1. Thanks, tomaso, for pointing me in the right direction. I thought there had to be a way to change the dimensions but I couldn't locate it. Reading the Publisher screens (white on black is awfully hard to read) and I unless I greatly increase the view size, I have no idea what the icons are supposed to represent.
  2. I need a template for what American book publishers call a US Trade Paperback, 6 inches by 9 inches. I can't believe Publisher wouldn't have a template for it, but I don't see anything I recognize as the correct size. I wrote the first edition of my book The Writing Teacher's ABCs at leanpub.com, where 6x9 is one of the standard sizes. Sorry I don't know what the metric equivalent of 6x9 is. (I have measuring sticks in inches, points, picas and agate, nothing metric.)
  3. I hope so, too. I suspect a portion of the problem I'm having now is due to the demand on Internet resources because of the pandemic. I've encountered all sorts of strange problems with programs I use regularly, so perhaps problems I'm having getting accustomed to Publisher will also turn out to be temporary. Fingers crossed!
  4. I'm delighted to see print materials for Publisher are in preparation. I'm one of the 30+ percent of people who don't learn well from video. Give me a moving image with voice-over and I have no idea what to focus on. I'll figure things out sooner or later but annotated screenshots would make the process much easier. I've watched some of the tutorials a half dozen times without being able to see what the presenter touches. Sometimes his hands block the view. Other times the white text on black background is simply unreadable. Most of the time, I can't tell what tool was selected to complete the action.
