Print ready file getting stuck on 80%
I have been using Lulu to publish my books for years and have never had any problems. However, I am struggling to get my latest book to convert into a print-ready file. I actually uploaded the PDF (converted from Publisher using CutePDF) a week or so ago to get a final revision copy, and I had no problems. I made a few minor changes to the text in the Publisher document, resaved it as a new PDF and uploaded it. Now it will not convert, and keeps getting stuck at 80%. I have tried every suggestion I have seen given to others who had similar problems, but to no avail.
The size of the PDF file is only 11MB, and it contains a lot of pictures (probably around 50) all black and white, but they are all JPEG and the PDF is as flattened as it can get. I have published five other books of the same size with the same amount of pictures with no issues, and as I said, this same book only a week ago. Nothing has changed at all since then regarding the number of pictures or anything like that.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.
