Why are my cover highlights not appearing in the Bob Bookshop preview?

It's now possible to add gold foiling, silver foiling and spot gloss (aka highlights) to the front and back cover of your books when using the Bob Designer Software.

These elements are treated differently than the rest of the text and images in your book when the print pdf files are created. Unfortunately, this also means that this information is not visible in the files used to preview books in the online Bob Bookshop.

If you'd like to share your book in the online Bob Bookshop and you've added highlights which are not visible in your online book, don't worry. Simply follow the steps below and we can update your book preview for you.

1. Open your book in the Bob Designer software and  "Open Preview" to view your cover full screen.

2. Take a screenshot of your cover and email it to us along with your order number to info@bobbooks.co.uk.

3. We'll update your files on the website as soon as we can, and email you to confirm when its done.

Please note that we can only adjust the bookshop online preview of your book. We cannot make any changes to the print files.
