The manuscript is ready, BUT it's in word, 8.5 x 11 pages. I need to get it set-up for a 5.5 x 8.5 book format. I'm hoping this is easier than my brain is making it out to be. My previous printer had a template that I uploaded to, and it did the converting, so I feel a bit like a fish out of water.
I assume I have to set my manuscript to fit on 5.5 x 8.5 pages, including .5 inch margins all around. I can do that. It's the bleed area that flips from side to side that has me confused. Is that difficult? I am not used to changing my margins every page, and since we're talking about a 200-page manuscript, I'm looking for an easy way to do this. Any ideas?
I tried a free set-up software, but it messed up selected parts of formatting, without giving any options on correcting what it had done.
