Problems getting Bloom books into RAB

Hi, I have been trying to get all our Bloom Big Books into Reading App Builder but am encountering some problems, so I am posting this on both Bloom and RAB forums in the hope of getting some answers:

  1. No cover page appears. I am very glad that the other outside pages with Bloom logo etc are not there but the cover page with the book title and picture are essential. Is there a way to bring them into the Reading App without having to go through every single one of my books and create a new ‘cover page’ as part of the inside pages…?
  2. I have one audio file for the whole of each book. I synchronise using aeneas. When I go to the Fine Tune timings, nothing appears…
  3. Even when I reduce the font size in the RAB set-up, it still comes out really big in the app and there is no response when I click on the font button in the app to alter it (bigger/smaller) - it just stays the same size.

Please note I am working in an Arabic-based script language, reading right-to-left. Apart from the RAB settings randomly flipping back to left-to-right now and again, that hasn’t been a problem so far.

Thanks for any help/advice anyone can give

Thanks Matty for this detailed report. I had a stab at doing this about 4 months ago and sent that info to the RAB team.

Now that we know someone out there is actually trying this, we’ll will take another look at it with the current builds and see if there’s anything we can do at our end.

Hi @Matty. Could you send me one of your books? In Bloom, use the “Report a Problem” and I’ll check it out. My initial tests are showing the cover page. Thanks.

Thanks so much. Have sent one. Issue is BL-7959
