The same thing was happening to a friend of mine as I was trying to help her create a book! It was very frustrating. I don't have a solution, but rather a question. Were you making your book on a PC computer or on an Apple? I have never had this problem with my PC, and we wondered if it was occurring because she was trying to use it on an Apple.
Why does Booksmart keep shutting itself down?
I'm trying to paste a manuscript into book format using Booksmart and it keeps quitting in the middle of my work. Despite the fact that every time I save it I get a smug little message saying my book is "always" saved, when I reopen the application most of the work I have done has gone! The programme itself is incredibly infuriating anyway, but this is too far. Yesterday I had to copy and paste a chapter three times because Booksmart switched off in the middle of it!

I was making it on a Mac. It may have something to do with the lack of disc space on my computer.
I am using a PC...I am having the same problem and I am beyond frustrated!!!
I have had trouble with Booksmart kicking me out after moving text around or photos. What I do now is save every time i do something-a pain, but at least I can move forward. One thing I just found out today when my book kept freezing up was that I had accidentally exchanged two pages. Because I am doing a text flow book, this totally messed the program up of course. I didn't even know it happened so check that everything is in the correct order and save as you go!
