This Is Fifty-Three, day 48

Still trying to get the color file just right…

CreateSpace’s Interior Reviewer shows this for page 93:

Unfortunately, in my original file, and in the PDF proof I download from CreateSpace, that weird red shape is not in that position. It is not supposed to be touching the black X, nor is it supposed to be that close to the text. I tried moving it a couple of times, but it made no real difference. So, I saved that element as an EPS in Illustrator, and replaced it on the page with that EPS. I am uploading the revised PDF as I type this, so I will know shortly whether or not that worked.

Meanwhile, I sent CreateSpace customer support a message asking about combining shipments, since I will be ordering two proofs at the same time. The answer, unfortunately, is that that is not possible—but, if I order both proofs on the same day, then e-mail them, they will refund the shipping costs for one of the orders. Not quite the answer I was hoping for, but good enough.

Back to it…

Update: It worked.
