Re: Questions about Books

Just tryed your creation of a Just Media Report . I agree with you this is not as workable option at the moment for my requirements. So will use your other suggestion for the time being using Blank Pages (placeholder) and save book as a Word Processor Document (RTF) option ,thank you.
