    How do you delete a book in BookWright?

    To delete a book, find the BookWright folder on your computer and then delete the book file. This action can’t be undone, and we can’t recover books you’ve removed from your computer. Only delete a book if you're certain you no longer need it. Here’s how:

    1. Search for the folder Blurb on your computer to locate the book's .blurb file. The default location on a PC is My Documents > Blurb, while on a Mac it's Documents > Blurb. To find the file path for a book project, click the Book Info button within an open book.

    2. Navigate to the folder on your computer named Blurb that contains files ending in .blurb.

    3. Right click on the file you want to delete and select Move to Trash to permanently delete the book. (The exact wording may vary depending on your operating system.) Remember, this can’t be undone, so make sure you no longer need the book file.
