Lulu download won't hold my 2016 Word manuscript
-- I've made over 2 dozen revisions of margins, numbering, and cover page, and just getting this typed is problematic with all the monkey business of curser skipping, and I have yet to get a serviceable download of my script. Either I get an error message on my upload, or my download won't hold the order of my page numbers.
This is my 3rd book and by far the most difficult in getting a credible result. I asked for help a few days ago, but nothing yet.
I won't publish with page numbers skipping to the next page, and these are my personally added page numbers, not Word page numbers because I was getting header/footer errors with their numbering system even though I eliminated the headers and footers. I have been numbering 2 skips up from the bottom of my substantial 1" margin, but as the pages progress, those numbers eventually bleed over to the next page, making a mess of my manuscript that is no way reflected the order of my Word program?
It would appear Lulu softwear is incompatible with Word 2016 after a year of updates since this is exactly what I used last year with very few problems. I finished my manuscript weeks ago, and am no nearer publishing today than if I'd never written a single world. Any software experts around to weigh in?
