Using Tenhorn Templates

I downloaded a Tinhorn template on the lulu site, and I am wondering if those can be used for createspace.  From what I've seen on the forum, they can be. But in looking over the margin submission requirements for Createspace, they don't match up with the template. For example, Createspace says that its minimum inner margins for 151-400 pages is .75.  But for the Tinhorn template, they are set at .7.  Is this an issue?  I'm a complete nube, so I apologize in advance if this is stupid question.

Yes, that inner margin setting would be an issue (unless that template also has a gutter setting -- in Word, the effective inside margin is the inner margin plus the gutter).  You can change the setting yourself, if necessary.  In addition, CreateSpace provides interior templates:

Hope that helps.  Best wishes.

It will work -- with a 0.25" gutter and 0.7" inner margin, the effective inside margin is 0.95".

Re: Using Tenhorn Templates

Inside margin is 0.5" and gutter is 0.3" the rest are correct. If you like the look though, you can still use the current settings.
