I am on Lightroom 5.6 and using the Blurb book module (standard size portrait, hard cover). On all cover page templates I have tried, the spine text runs horizontally. The spine text should rather run vertically or else it is not possible to show the author name and book title on the spine - pretty odd!?

The issue seems to have been reported in older versions of LR, but not yet fixed?

I have had contact with Adobe support that recommended me to report the issue here.

Which font are you using? Do all fonts exhibit this behavior?

I am using Century Gothic, but all fonts have the same issue, including default Myriad Pro and Arial

Now this is weired - today the problem disappeared after change of the cover template. In the post above I used the top template, switching to the fourth from above fixed the issue. Also going back to the top template works.
