We're aware of an issue with converting some DOC, DOCX, ODT, and RTF files to EPUB through our Ebook Wizard.

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.

EPUB Conversion: Nest Lists

Formatting an eBook can a challenging process. One issue that can come up but is not well detailed in our eBook guide involves Lists.

Word and other text editing programs can create Lists with bullets, numbers, and letters. Our EPUB converter can convert your file if it has one level of lists, but if you want multiple levels, or “nested” lists, the converter won’t be able to handle the formatting.

For example, this will be fine:

  • List Item 1
  • List Item 2
  • List Item 3

But a list like this will not work:

  • List Item 1 
    • List Item 1.1
    • List Item 1.2
  • List Item 2
  • List Item 3

The EPUB file our converter creates can only utilize the single layer of a list. If your file has multi-layer “nested” lists, you’ll need to remove the elements nested to complete your file conversion.
