Hey everybody,
I want to export a book I created in Aperture 3.4.1 by going to “buy book” and then use the preview. But for some reason the button (supposed to be under the stated price) is missing. Do you have any idea what I can do about this?

Select the Print button and then the PDF option you can then save the book as a pdf or mail it , etc.
Hope that helps

Thanks for your answer. Unfortunately the both options seem to be not identical. First of all I have this white border around my pages. It really cuts parts of the page off, so I cannot simply use another program to overcome this. Second (and more important) I would like to print the book with another company than Apple. They use a special program for this were I have to import the PDF created by the preview button in Aperture.

Thanks for your help! Perhaps somebody knows this problem!

I recently created a book in Aperture and when I click on the “Buy Book” button (next to the “Print” button), the first thing I see is a summary of my book and the cost. There is then a “Preview” button available. This may be a stupid question, but is it possible you are not in the “Books” section of your Aperture Library?

So this button is missing? [screenshot]

Definitely have not experienced that before. I would start with little things like trashing the preferences. If that doesn’t solve it, create a new user and a new Aperture library, import a few pictures and build a fake book (doesn’t matter if you only have one photo in it, go past the warnings and you can get to the ‘buy’ screen), and see if the button appears there.
