You've finished your book or at least you think you've finished your book. There are a few important things I'd recommend that you check before you send it off for printing. You want to make sure that everything is indeed done, spelled correctly and there are no last minute changes to make, after all, do you really want to spend $50.00 and regret it? So, let's take the time to just dot our Is and cross our Ts. I'm going to go back to the All Pages View and take a look at my book. This gives me a nice overview of the whole thing.
This is a good time if necessary to rearrange some pages or if you're looking at it, you could decide that you want to add some extra pages. Perhaps you want a blank page towards the end. I could do that, so I can add some notes to the person I'm giving this. Maybe a short letter, thanking them for going on such a fun trip with us, or writing a letter to my children, so when they read this 20 years from now, they'll remember some of the fun times we had. Sure, I could add that as text, but I want to do it by hand, making it much more personal.
I feel that's pretty good there, and I've added the pages that I want. If I end up with more pages than I think I need, that's simple too. Just select the page and press the Delete button. That will go ahead and remove it, and in some cases when you delete, you'll notice that it will insert a blank page until you get the other page out. That's because most pages work with matching layouts from one side to the next, the front or back of a page. So until you delete two pages, you may end up with a temporary blank.
