What do you recommend for:
- KDP Paperback 5x8 margins for top, bottom, left, right?
- Also generally what font, size, and paragraph settings would you use?

using ms word? (for nonfiction)
Thanks

How's the rest of the Group?

Anyhow, you can search the boards here for info on that. KDP also has a pretty good set of instructions at https://kdp.amazon.com/en_US/help/topic/G202145400.

My only advice is to add to the gutter margin maybe 0.25". If you're not sure, set it up and then order a proof copy and see how it looks before putting it up for sale. (Yes, the voice of experience is speaking)

Good luck with the book.

My paperbacks are 5.25 x 8, and these are the margins I use:

T: 0.65
I: 0.65
G: 0.13
B: 0.5
O: 0.35
Can you expand on TIGBO, so its easy to understand.
