At this time, we're investigating the problem and looking for a solution.
If you've encountered this issue while converting your file, we suggest attempting to create and upload an EPUB directly to our system.
While there are a number of EPUB conversion options, Calibre (Download Here) has shown the best results for creating an EPUB for the Lulu system. Please review their extensive Help resources (Found Here) to create an EPUB 2 that our system can validate.
We've also created this Forum Thread. Post questions here and we'll do our best to respond and assist.
Recommended Fonts for Microsoft Word Documents
If you are planning to upload a Microsoft Office Word file (.doc or .docx) for Lulu to convert to a print-ready PDF, we recommend choosing a font from the following list. If you use a font that is not on this list, the Lulu converter may substitute one of these fonts in its place, which could adversely affect your formatting.
- Book Antiqua
- Bookman Old Style
- Times New Roman
If you are planning to upload your own PDF, you may use any fonts you like, but you must embed the fonts in the PDF before uploading to Lulu.
Follow these general guidelines when choosing your fonts:
- Serif fonts are best for printed documents. Use serif fonts like Garamond, Times New Roman and Palatino for blocks of body text.
- Sans serif fonts are best for online documents and for display text. Use sans serif fonts like Arial and Verdana if you intend your book to be viewed online.
- Use bold sans serif fonts for title text or headings.
