I am trying to make a photobook to be printed from Blurb, of course using Scribus. I did manage to set up the layout for the interior but I am having issues with the cover pdf file to be generated. This is not specifically a Scribus problem, I am just unable to figure out which of the different mesures / values correspond to Scribus options when defining a new doc. Well, I hope someone knows and can help!
Here are the different spefification provided by Blurb:
Page Specifications Points
Final, exported PDF should measure (w x h) 693 x 594
Page size / trim line (w x h) 684 x 576
Bleed (top, bottom, and outside edges) 9
Inset for Margins / Safe boundary (Top, Bottom, Outside Edge) 18
Inset for Margins / Safe boundary (Binding Edge) 45
Cover Specifications Points
Final, exported PDF should measure (w x h) 1395 x 594
Total Page size / trim line (w x h) 1377 x 576
Bleed (all edges) 9
Flaps (w x h, measured from trim edge to fold) none
[b]Gutter / Spine (w x h) 9 x 594
Inset for Margins / Safe boundary (from edge of trim) 18[/b]
So here are my questions:
- Do I have to set a 1 page or a 2 page layout for the cover?
- I particularly do not know where to set the bolded specifications (Gutter / spine and inset of margin). Do I specifiy this when setting dimensions of a new document or do I do this at a later stage?
