Cutt Off Page numbers in 'preview' of published book
Hi there, I have been working to formatt everything just so for an 8.25" x 10.75" hadback casewrap and everything in the downloaded print-ready file looked great, but after I hit submit and publish and I looked at the 'preview' that was given I noticed that the page numbers were cuttoff and the right margin practically disappeared on the odd numbered pages. I retired that edition and am working to upload another but I wanted to get this problem solved.
1) I read on the knowledge base that odd numbered pages appear on the right (i.e. when a book is open the even page is on the left and the odd page is on the right). Is this correct?
2) I built in the margin and the gutter on the manuscript that I uploaded, but does the system adjust that when I upload? *Note: I specifically formatted the page numbers so that they would appear on the bottom outside corners (an odd page has the page number in the bottom right, an even page has the page number in the bottom left). **Further note: Many of the pages end up coming from an Excel spreadhseet (I can't use Word for these pages) and I had to build the gutter into the margins when I printed to PDF since Excel doesn't have mirrored margins or gutter options.
3) Since the download of the print-ready file and the 'preview' offered on the published book page display different results, which one should I trust?
