  1. It’s a nice template but it’s not correctly arranged for a novel. Inside cover is in wrong place, Chapter 1 should be page 1 and on the right and I’ve never seen a professionally published book with dialogue done this way…to list a few.

  2. I see that the body text has a paragraph style that is left justify, yet the text is fully justified. How did you accomplish that?
