Question: I am trying to get the layout for a KDP Amazon paperback book. I have done 8x8, 8.25X8.25 and even 8.5x8.5 and I can't seem to line my page upright. In Affinity after you set your page, it comes with little boxes on the page and as long as you should stay in the box you should be good. Is that correct? because I have kept in the lines and it looks like it has too much white border or it will go out the lines.  It is a 2400px squared and 129 pages. I have also have used the magnet to snap to guide to help me. The first picture is in Affinity the 2nd is the results in Amazon. (PS I am still 2 weeks new so don't get too technical. :)

Have you tried changing bleeding option in KDP? I had a similar issue with an image on a KDP book. The image content was inside the margins but apparently part of the background was out. I switched from no bleed to bleed and that solved the problem. Cover size will vary, though, even if the interior document is the same.

Thank you for reporting a problem using the pre 1.8.0 beta builds. It appears that a member of the Affinity QA team didn't get round to fully investigating this specific report posted in the bugs forums. We are very sorry for this oversight. Yours is one of a number of reports that I am posting this apology to, using an automated script. 

Now we have released 1.8.3 on all platforms containing many hundreds of bug fixes, and we hope your problem has already been fully addressed. If you still have this problem in the 1.8.3 release build, then the QA team would really appreciate you reporting again it in the relevant Bugs forum.

Each of those links above contains instructions how best to report a bug to us. If that is what you already did in this thread just copy paste your original report into a new thread. We appreciate all the information that you have including sample files and screen shots to help us replicate your problem.

This thread has now been locked as the QA team are not following the threads to which this automatic reply is made, which is why we would appreciate a new bug report if you are still have this problem in the release build.
