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.

We’re bringing the site down for maintenance tonight.

We apologize for the inconvenience and ask that you plan accordingly.

Font embeded but not showing

I'm having trouble with the main font (Adobe Garamond Pro) in my document. I'm creating the PDF from Pageplus. The font is set to embed, the PDF upload looks fine and when I do document properties on the created PDF it's on the 'fonts used' list. But, when Lulu creates the print ready file it's replaced with another font. The other fonts in the document (Bradley Hand & Franklin Gothic) work fine.


Any ideas?

  •  Thank you so much! That's fixed it - it's been driving me crazy all afternoon playing with different setting with no joy.
