I've uploaded a book into my library with no problem, but I'm having an issue with the right margin.  It seems to go further that the panel so I can't read it.  I readjusted the margins in MS Word and reuploaded, but still has the same problem.  Any suggestions?

Do you have any fixed width pictures or tables in the book? And do you have a horizontal scroll bar appearing?

I get similar results when my panel is narrower than the greatest fixed width item in the personal book.

I do have a table made by Word and I do have a scroll bar.  

should I try without the table?  I'd hate to lose that.

No, convert the table to autofit (column or window) rather than fixed columns and the problem will go away.

I was able to narrow the TOC, but it still didn't work

I've never had that not work. How wide is your panel? What I would do is:

  • open just this resource ... let it fill the whole pane.
  • is there a horizontal scroll bar? I would assume not
  • grab the right side of the pane and start slowly moving it left
  • as soon as the horizontal scroll bar appears stop
  • then scroll down the resource looking for whatever forces this to be the minimum width -- normal an image, table, ...
  • once you know what is forcing the width, we should be able to correct the problem.

That is really strange. I'm going to have to think about this ...

Maybe try cutting the section with the table [not just the table]  into a temporary file and making a temporary book out of it?  [maybe name the temporary book "aaatemp" and reuse that temporary book the next time you have a problem]  Then post the small file with table so we can try it out.

[[I repeat, not just the table but something before and after also]]
