Previewing Your Book

BookBildr lets you preview your book to check the general layout of the pages. Please note that the exact formatting might differ between book types, but the order of the pages (left-right) will be just like in the preview.

How to Preview Your Book #

You can preview your book at any time and check the layout of the pages. To do that, click on the Preview icon:

BookBildr Preview

The Preview litebox will appear. Click on a corner to turn pages:

Preview litebox

Click on the X icon in the top right corner to close Preview.

Note: the Preview feature is for information purposes only to check the layout and the order of your pages. The exact way your book is going to be printed depends on the format you choose. Go to FAQBook Formatting tab for more details.

Using the Spread View Mode #

You can also see how your book will look when you zoom out to 33%. That way the book view will switch to Spread View Mode and you’ll be able to edit your book in spreads.
