I'm using Affinity Publisher to print a Blurb tradebook (6x9), and I'm having issues creating a cover for the book.

When I put in the cover specifications (See attached image) when creating a new document, I don't have a place to input the Gutter/Spine measurements. This means when I hit "OK", the document looks like a wide rectangle with no spine in the middle, making it difficult to see if the title will be off-center.

There don't seem to be any good tutorials for creating a Blurb book (or any book from start to finish) with Affinity, but if there is one, I'd love a link.

Thank you!

Hi Legotoes and Welcome to the Forums,

You'd need to use the Guides to mark the area for the spine. 

If you see this tutorial it covers setting up guides and you'll then be able to manually add a couple of guides for the Spine and continue working :)
