Converting to PDF format

Hello Lulu Community:
When my format converter converts to PDF, it only converts to an 8 1/2"X11" page size. I see no other options. My original is 6"X9" and is properly sized and formatted. When I convert to PDF, it maintains the proper size and format of my words and images but converts it onto 8 1/2"X11" PDF size page with my pages taking up only the middle portion each page.

Will this work for printing purposes?
I am currently using the free dopdf converter.
Should I find a different converter?


Should I just have Lulu.com do my conversion?

Or - - Am I missing an available option?

Thank you in advance for your help.

    No no, that is a perfect converter.


    After Print, click on Properties and change the page size to 6x9.

  • Thank you Maggie. I will do that.

  • Hi,

    It seems that you have worked it out. Congratulations! I am also testing about the related PDF converters these days. I wonder whether the one you mentioned above offers free trials for users to check? Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.




    Best regards,
