    Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't been around in...well, a long time! :lol: Working on my 3rd book and I've been learning the ropes on my formatting and cover creation.

    Chautona has been a HUGE blessing/help/encouragement/support/hasn't killed me yet :rolleyes: But, she does not speak Mac, so I need to ask, I know some of you use Macs.

    In Pages for Createspace, for a 6x9 book, would this be the proper margins?

    AND...if anyone can help me with page numbering/headers, that would be great. I can't seem to get them to start on the first page of the STORY. I added a section break, but that did not seem to work for me.

    Thanks in advance! :wub:

    I use InDesign not Pages, but I know Createspace requires (will bounce anything with less than) .75" inside margin. The rest I can't help you with. Sorry.

    With the Cloud thing? I may look into that.

    Yes, individual apps are around $20 a month. Almost everything they sell is available for $50 a month. Creative Cloud.
