Move a BookWright book to another computer

Here's how to move, back up or share your BookWright book.

1 Locate the .Blurb file of the book you'd like to move, share or back up. The default location on a PC is My Documents > Blurb. On a Mac, it's Documents > Blurb.

2 Copy the .Blurb file to a portable storage device like a USB drive or external hard drive. You can also send the file to yourself via an online transfer service such as www.hightail.com.

3. If moving your book: also copy over any fonts in your book that might not be installed on the second computer. On a PC your font files are found under Control Panel > Fonts. On a Mac the fonts can be found in your Font Book application.

4 If all you're doing is backing up your files you can stop here. Otherwise, if you want to open that book on another computer now, make sure it has BookWright installed (www.blurb.com/bookwright) then continue to the next step.

5 Connect your storage device to the second computer.

6 Move any fonts you may have copied and install them on the second computer.

7 Move your BookWright file (ending in .blurb) to the second computer. Copying it to the desktop will make it easy to find.

8 Double click on that .blurb file you just moved to open your book.
