Frequently Asked Questions 

Is it compatible with any InDesign software? 

You need to have Adobe InDesign CS4 or higher to use the PDF to Book creation method. Bob Books does not supply InDesign - you will need to already be a user of Adobe InDesign to use this tool. 

Do I need to download any type of presets?

Bob Books presets are automatically installed when you launch the templates.

How do I upload?

How can I ensure quality control? 

After completion of order, your file will go through rigorous pre-flight checks before being sent to print. If there are any errors with your file, you will be contacted via email to amend these. You will not be charged until the books are in production.

I am getting a Java error message when I install the PDF to Book software - what do I do? 

Make sure that Java is installed within the Application folder on your computer. If you are still having problems, please contact askbob@bobbooks.co.uk 

What recommended file size should my images be?

We recommend all photographs being 300dpi or above. You can have lower res images but they will still need to be set to 90dpi or above, as this is the minimum print requirement of our system. *Handy tip: how to check the dpi is over 90 on photos: select a photo in InDesign then click on F8, and it tells you the photo info including dpi.
