Hopefully this is the appropriate thread for such an inquiry. I just completed the 1st printing of my book. I'd like to make changes on the 2nd printing, but I'm wondering how to get my designer out of the picture (ya' see...he's VERY expensive and tends to overestimate project time) He provided me with a read-only pdf file. Do I need the original Indesign file with embedded fonts to make my own changes? If so, is he obligated to give it to me? And is it easy to screw up the lay-out if I were to apply my own changes to the original file? I'm not experienced in lay-out. I'm not sure how to handle this. Perhaps my printer can help me out? What would you all suggest?
