Our manuscript templates can be used in Microsoft Word, Adobe InDesign, Quark Xpress, or Pages by importing the .doc template.
These templates will provide you with the overall size, as well as suggested margins for text.
Bookbaby does not provide support on how to use these programs, but can offer basic support on using our templates. Any questions about how to use this software should be directed to the software manufacturer, or someone who specializes in offering training for them.
If you are unable to set up your document in the template, BookBaby offers manuscript formatting services, as well as cover design.
