I am having the biggest problem formatting a book for Barnes & Nobile publishing, inside of InDesign.
My OS is Win10, 64bit, latest version. InDesign is also updated to the most current version. I'm creating a 5.5-8.5 paperback book.

My bleeds are...

Do you really need bleed on a paperback book?
I'm a novice when it comes to book layouts. But, according to B&S guidelines, if the layout has images that run over the edge, bleed should be added.
Are you uploading a Word document, a PDF or an InDesign document?

Hi Rob, thanks for responding. I am aware of what you mentioned. However, the issue is that for whatever reason, my layout is not meeting Barnes & Nobile's requirements.
Are you sending a PDF? If so what Export Preset did you use and have you checked the page dimensions via AcrobatPro? You can use Preflight to check individual pages or Document Properties for the document size.
Can you share the problem PDF?
