Exporting to pdf

Previous topic - Next topic


Please forgive me, noob here, I've searched the forums to find no exact answer.

I want to create an 8.5 x 11 book for createspace.com.

I have a book that will use full color bleed, so when setting the image size in gimp, I followed the recommended guidelines and made all the pages 8.625 x 11.25, to account for the .125 bleeds.

Now, when exporting to pdf, I have the issue shown in the image attached. The final pdf is 9.00 x 11.50 and I'm not sure on how to adjust or configure the document settings to get me the proper layout for an 8.5 x 11 book.

The image shown is the area on the inside binding, which is displaying a portion of the content of the adjoining page for both pages.

Any links or suggestions would be appreciated.
