I'm trying to publish a paperback book on Amazon/KDP using Affinity Publisher. The problem is that half of the pages are missing when previewed on KDP. Per the KDP instructions, I created the AP document with "facing pages" layout (so margins and gutters are OK). My AP book contains 76 pages but the exported PDF only contains 39 pages. Page 1 in the PDF is OK but the remaining pages are "double-wides" -- each containing 2 "book pages". It looks like KDP is chopping off the right half of each PDF page so only the even-numbered (left-side) pages are left. I've contacted Amazon support but I'm guessing they're going to tell me to create a PDF with 76 pages -- i.e. one book page per PDF page. I've looked around the AP export options and don't see any way to do this. So, the question is, how do I export a 76-page "facing pages" document to a 76 page "single page" PDF? I hope this makes sense -- it's a little confusing. Thanks.
Johnny Chin posted a topic in Affinity on Desktop Questions (Mac and Windows)Hey guys, I wanted to make a fixed layout ePub3 ebook and a 8 X 10 inches paperback to publish to kdp, iBook and plsybookstore. The book is full of photos and vector lines and also texts on each page. I have been using Pixelmator to edit my photos(jpgs), I made a Pixelmator document with same dimension as the photos and C&P all of them inside and remove the background and color edit the subject. Then I make documents in Affinity Designer(one for ebook and one for paperback, 1875 X 2500 pixels, 8 x 10 inches respectively). I C&P(so no lose in quality from the conversion in export) one by one of the edited photos into AD and resize them(the photos doesn’t get compressed or change in dpi from the resize), I places all the images on the location I wanted and draw all the vectors and insert all the texts. I prepared all the contents on AD snd arranged them like how they gonna looks like in final book. Now is the tricky part, I chosen InDesign because the new Affinity Publisher doesn’t export as ePub yet and InDesign is the standard. But I really in right pocket situation so I can only use the trial, that’s why I prepare everything in AD. Now I not really have a clue how do I import everything to InDesign, back then I thought just remove the texts and export the pages as a jpg/png images and paste it in InDesign then add the texts to the page in InDesign. I heard this is not ok. And I know there’s a place tool in InDesign but do I really need to use it? Can you guys let me know what should I do? Extra: In AD there’s 2 text tool, artistic and text frame tools, I like to use artistic text tool because the text frame is exactly touching the highest and widest edge of the texts, so I can align the frame at the any location accurately. Does the text tool in InDesign do this or the frame is surrounded by the spacing of glyph too?
