On my account and anyone I work with, the permanent message for all browsers is that I have to load flash.  Well, guess, what?  All my browsers have flash loaded yet I get this message on all browsers and all the computers I have access to.  This behavior is abyssmal and insulting.  Is there any browser this works on?  I want to see a proof of my cover, but createspace is permanently blocking this ability.  Does anybody know of a work around.  I have tried installing flash on browsers but it refuses to install stating that its installation is not allowed.  Createspace still pretends I don't have flash installed on the browsers it is installed on (Chrome).  Why is Createspace deliberately blocking me from viewing my cover in any possible way?

Where to indicate "6th Edition"?

Posted by Waiki May 11, 2018

For the sixth edition of my textbook I am moving over to Createspace from a different custom publisher.  Should I add "6th Edition" to the title, put it in as a subtitle, or as a Volume number?  Thanks.

I tried to upload the description and bio of my book Sleep Apnea, Sleep Study, CPAP Machine many tims and I got this error code. only print printable words. I even tried creating a new book and I got the same results. I tried and tried and called several times to customer service and spoke to several people but nobody could help me until the last call. I was very frustrated and I couldn't believe this but the guy that I was talking to finally said something I could relate too. I always copy and past from my book onto the Create Space Template I have done this many times for several different books.  He said it was the formatting.

I went back to my document and cleared the formatting and then copy and pasted onto the template and it worked. Yes.

I've finished formatting my manuscript and although I have Createspace's 6x9 format I can't get the Table of Contents to line up properly.

Is there anyone out there that provides this service and is familiar with Createspace?

Thanks JArae111

Hi everyone,


I have just made my presentation and already have a question that seems to not be answered. What are the best fonts for Self-help book (science, esoterism). I have seen here and there the popular fonts like Minion Pro or Garamond but I think they are good for novels, science-fiction book and son on and so forth. It doesn't look serious enough on a self-help book, right ?


So here I come to you CreateSpace community Do you have any idea what fonts are "standards" for this kind of books ? I wrote mine with Time New Romans font (11.5) but I wonder if I can find a better one.


Thank you so much for your time!!

Hello, I'm preparing to put my first video up on Amazon/CreateSpace.  It is a 2 hour instructional video.


Will it be possible to format this streaming video with a menu which would take the viewer directly to a particular chapter/section of the video?

Peace, Does anyone know how to turn off the template guidelines in Word? I'm not using a design program just Word  and PDF to formate my book and cover. Thanks for any help available.

I'm a first time createspace user but I think I'm doing things right...  I formatted my 320 page 7"x9.5" document to have a .33" margin and .66" gutter - no bleed at all - then I used Sejda to convert size to 6x9 (because I couldn't get Acrobat to do it!).  When I open the newly created PDF in Acrobat it's properties show as a 6"x9" and it looks fine.  After uploading to CreateSpace the reviewer says the file is 7.0694447x9.94... and that I need to scale it.  Why does reviewer think the file is this size and how can I fix my file so that it works when uploaded?  If I try to scale the file then random pages go blank and other funky things happen like random missing text!  What am I doing wrong?  Thanks for any advice!

When I submitted my PDF interior file for "My Cousin, Ethel Weed, A Biography and Sourcebook" for review, it came back with formatting issues on way too many pages. To resolve these issues, I switched my trim size from 7x10 to 8x10, and things were looking pretty good. When I tried resubmitting for review, I discovered to my chagrin that I exceed the 8x10 page limit of 440 pages. So I'd like to create two new projects using the same title, but as a 2-volume work, Volume I and II. Then delete the old project. What new problems would I create for myself? Look forward to your advice!

Interior Reviewer hanging

Posted by bluuman Oct 22, 2017

I am trying to review a 300 page PDF using CreateSpace Interior Reviewer and it just hangs at about 85% with 'Loading' displayed.

I have tried many times over the last couple of days to no effect, the same point being reached.


My PDF is clean with no errors.

I have the latest FireFox and fast broadband.


Anybody else with this issue?

squaring text on a page

Posted by ricksm Apr 8, 2017

We've been back and forth with CreateSpace, and they are happy to produce proof copies, but they don't seem to have any quality control process to make sure the text and cover meet acceptable publishing standards. What does it take to have CreateSpace ensure that the printed text is printed squarely on the page?
