I need the help of a Word expert. I have poured my book manuscript text into the basic 6" x 9" template provided by Create Space (the book printing service of amazon.com). But I don't understand Word well enough to get page numbers to NOT print on the first few pages. There are formatting problems-- the text on some pages doesn't go to the bottom of the page. When the manuscript file was imported it was double spaced. (It filled more than 800 pages!) It needs to be single spaced, so the final book will be about 415 pages. The tab (for paragraph indents) needs to be reset throughout the manuscript. The text has to be justified left and right (but not the chapter headings). I think you get the drift. I don't think any of this is especially difficult for someone who really knows the ins and outs of Word. Your job is to get this file ready to be imported into Create Space so the final book looks perfect.
