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.

use of shapes instead of text boxes



Can you please help me...I have been trying to convert my word document to epub however the problem is the textboxes...I used text boxes but changed it to shapes. But still the problem is the same.. help..thanks..


By the way I put a lot of pictures too since it is learning English for kids...




  • I had to give up on ebooks because, like you, I had a lot of pictures but they always came out much smaller than I made them. Unless you really know what you are doing i.e. are able to edit the source code, your illustrated ebook will never look the way you want it to.


    You might want to try using the Kindle Kids Book Creator which will allow you to put text into dialogue boxes over your pictures, if that is what you are trying to do.

  • Because our EPUBs are reflowable (not fixed layout) using images can be tricky. Ideally, you would use images inserted into a Word file, with all images sized around 500 x 500 pixels, with resolution around 72dpi.
