Although Lightning Source has other sizes and options available, such as those restricted to creme paper and/or dust jacket versions of hardback books, we do not currently support all paper/ book types, although we may add those options in the future.

Note: Production Team says to use Affinity or InDesign for print-on-demand books, not Word, Microsoft Publisher, Scribd, GIMP, or PDF Maker as these programs can cause issues with specs and layout.
While we have tutorials for Scribus, we are no longer supporting it.
Also, they mention using Photoshop and Illustrator for image editing only, not for layout.
