Tables in Scribus are really not tables, but just a bunch of grouped text frames.

we need to add .125 all around. If we do that, it won't fit a 6" x 9" book template any longer.

to me, this statement does not make me very confident about the all thing.

bleeds are outside of the page. adding bleeds should not be increasing the size of your book by a single millimeter...

it's just about allowing the print shop a margin of error...

hi georgia

i just saw people editing the bleed settings in 'document setup', but in the 'pre-press' tab of the .pdf export window they kept an entry of 0mm for the bleeds.

…and i didn't know how experienced you are…

utnik,

Thanks for your reply - but I'm not sure what you mean? When I first submitted these books I chose ''no bleed'' and they sent them all back with directions to add bleed. We've been going around about this for about a week and a half and I'm about ready to give it up. I worked in publishing for 9 years and thoroughly understand bleed - better than Amazon does, obviously. And of course there is no way to contact them.

hi georgia

do you really export the defined bleed?
you can define 1/8" of bleed in your document but finally export your .pdf files without bleed…

à propos comments / notes in scribus:

you cannot do them right now in scribus, but it would be an interesting task to be able to add some sort of post its... maybe even with tags (todo, ...) to help tracking them...

I agree with both of your statement about bleed being defined and Amazon not requiring it to be colored. But in practice, that's what is happening because they don't seem to see the bleed. I used the template generated by Amazon and here are their requirements:

Page count: 24 to 150 pages   
Inside (gutter) margins: 0.375 in   
Outside margins (with bleed): at least 0.375 in

That's exactly what our pages are, according to Scribus - see the attached image.

Yet Amazon keeps rejecting our books saying we need to add .125 all around. If we do that, it won't fit a 6" x 9" book template any longer. I first submitted them without bleed, but they rejected all and insisted on bleed, which is now there. 

Any ideas?
