I am assuming that it is not publicly available until I press some more buttons - It looks OK in that it is marked as Protected at the moment. I want to see the hard copy, check what the photos look like and that the cover is OK. I will also use that copy for one of the proof readers while I continue to work on proof reading the word file. I assume I can then go back in and set up another version (or do I just edit the current one?) , upload the final manuscript, make any little changes I might want with the cover.....and then go public? The system seems more slick than it was last year but I must make sure nothing goes wrong this time! (more) and gained+3

It's only a double check of the file after conversion so it's not vital and I've disabled it for the time being. New uploads will go through now. I'll re-instate the check once the vendor has fixed the issue. Your file is good to go! Oli (more) and received+3

Causing me a bit of a headache so I've contacted the software vendor for a fix. In the meantime I've disabled this check as it was a double check anyway so future manuscripts will go through. If you want me to check/convert anything manually just give me a bell. Oli (more) and bagged+3

OK, I am experimenting with some black and white images. I have tried to upload my first version of the new manuscript last night and it came back failed to convert (I knew it would be a problem!!!!!). I have pushed the button for a manual conversion just in case there are any format issues but i am using the same template as last time so there shouldnt be other than the photos. My first aim is to get to a proof copy of the book so i can have a look at the photos and doa nother proof read. Can i get more than one at this stage? I cant remember. So, if someone can have a look at the downloaded file and check it out that is base one! Thanks D (more) and won+3

We're waiting on the printers for the improved colour options. LS and CPI do already offer colour printing but it requires every page to be sent to the colour printer which is very expensive. LS are installing a new type of colour printer which will make the cost of printing the whole book much lower. CPI are experimenting with colour insert options (about £0.30 a page which is two sides). It is looking like it will be a month or so before we can start working with them to offer this service. Give me a bell if you need a hand with anything in the mean time. All the best, Oli (more) and earned+3

I am closing in on completion of my second book, the manuscript should be ready in a couple of weeks. Do you remember many moons ago i asked if it was possible to include photographs in our books? Has anything changed at all in respect of this? As with all sports books, I would love to be able to include a few glossy photo pages in the middle of the new book - are you aware of any way that can be achieved within the confines of the CN /LS system?
