I just posted my first no ISBN book and when I checked the listing I don't see large print indicated - should it say that if I checked it? Can I edit a listing?

if you are sure that you checked the Large Print box it really should say Large Print on the description of it that people see.  I think you can go in and edit the information...sorry I can't be more help.

What book is it on your shelf and I'll look at it, maybe it says it and you are just overlooking it.

I just deleted and re-listed. This time I typed the [Large Print] as part of the title and made sure I checked the large print box, but I don't see it in the listing.

Go to the Advanced search page, search for books with that title, be sure to check the box near the bottom of the first section for Large Print. See if your book comes up.

Try searching for the author and checking the Large Print box to be sure your book comes up.

If it does, then your book is categorized as large print and will come up when people search for LP books.

I figured out what you are looking for. You are looking for the genre/subject listing that has Large Print listed. I don't believe that shows on non-ISBN books. Your book is listed in the database as a LP, if I try to post a book to the PBS-assigned ISBN, which you shouldn't do, but I started it, just to test it, the system comes up and tells me I'm posting to a LP book and to be sure mine is LP

If I search by the author or title with the LP checked, the books comes up both ways. So, it's working, it just doesn't have the blue link to other LP books.

Please do go in and correct the brackets you have around Large Print and replace them with parenthesis. Use the little arrow that drops down, on the right side of the details page. Click EDIT BOOK DATA and change the brackets in the title. Thanks!

Thanks Sherry - I've made the correction, which was another question I had - how to find that arrow!

 

Thanks,

Cynthia
