PAGINATION, Publish Your Book With Dr Olga Book Publishing


Pagination
Make sure the page numbers are ordered sequentially, with even numbers on left pages and odd numbers on right pages. A skip or change in page numbers could indicate pages are missing or ordered incorrectly, causing production issues and delays or customer returns. To fix pagination issues:

Open your original file.
Insert a section break at the end of your front matter so that page numbers start with your first chapter page. To insert a section break, go to the Layout tab. In the "Page Setup" section, click Breaks, and select Section Breaks – Next Page.
Go to the first chapter page.
Depending on whether you want your page numbers in the header or footer, double-click on the header or footer. This will open the Design tab.
In the "Navigation section," click Link to Previous. This will prevent page numbers from showing up on your title, copyright, and table of contents pages.
In the "Header & Footer" section, click Page Number and choose where you want the page numbers to be.
Resubmit the revised file.

Template content

If you used a template, make sure you customized or removed all placeholder text.

Open your original file.
Check your front matter (e.g., table of contents, copyright page, etc.), headers, and footers for placeholder text.
Customize or remove all placeholder text.
Resubmit the revised file.

Illegible text
Make sure customers can read the text in your manuscript and cover files. Text should be at least 7-point font and not be cut off or overlapped by other elements. Also, make sure the text doesn't blend into the background. Your text should also be large and clear so readers can enjoy your book.

To fix your text:

Open your original file.
Update your text size, position, or color to ensure it’s legible.
Upload the revised file to KDP.

Cover and spine text
The cover file I uploaded has more than one page.
I chose the wrong cover size.
The spine content is too large for my book's page count.
My book has fewer than 100 pages so I can't have text on the spine.
See our Help page for details on cover formatting.
