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.

Formatting prior to online publicatioin

I am ready to publish online a document that has been converted to PDF format, but have forgotten how to do it. For starters I need to modify my Project List to change the Status of the document from "Draft" to "General Access," and hopefully then the categories "Manage," "View/Buy," and "Promote" will also appear. How can I do this? Thanks for this info.

  • Draft means you have not completed the Project Wizard yet.


    Once you have then click on the Project name in your list of Projects (My Projects area) and on the first page that opens, scroll down and you can see the distribution options. Private. General. Direct.


    Note that a PDF cannot have an ISBN or Distribution and will only be for sale on your Spotlight.
