In this example, I simply changed the title in the text box and updated the font style to something I wanted. One thing that did not carry over was the text style.

Keep in mind, these are books that have already been uploaded from BookSmart to your online Blurb dashboard for print. The second book project downloaded perfectly. This warning lets you know that there might be slight adjustments to the layouts based on updated photo book sizes.
