BookSmart can print to PDF from the print menu, however it will generate a low res watermarked copy for proof reading. If you would like a high resolution PDF of your book (that includes the cover), you can purchase one after uploading your file to our servers.
Useful addition to Booksmart software SAVE AS and EXPORT
Booksmart is excellent book writing software,. except need SAVE AS in PDF and MS WORD format and EXPORT as PDF or MS word format.

Not good enough and useless as no confidentiality when sending manuscript to remote server. Not having SAVE AS and EXPORT will force users to look elsewhere for better application that does have SAVE AS and EXPORT.
I do understand why Blurb has not implemented SAVE AS and EXPORT you simply try to stop users to print elsewhere and that is a wrong approach, because, users will sooner than later, simply use better software that has basics such as SAVE AS and EXPORT and eventually your market share in using Blurb software and printing will fall.
Why should Blurb invest millions in creating BookSmart and Bookify and provide them for free for you to use and you then print elsewhere? It gives them no opportunity to recoup their investment in software development if you do not order books from them.
Blurb's important market share is in the book printing world, not in supply of free software.
You have missed my point no one is asking to use Blurb software for free appropriate charge can be applied if user wish to use basics function of writing software such as SAVE AS or EXPORT. Many users and writers produce 1 of manuscripts or manuals and company confidential books, data cannot be send to outside printers or send to remote servers. You need to know basics in development of software application "Make it useful to as many customers as possible" the methods how to charge customer is easy part.
this doesn't work anymore
