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 do not accept PDF documents with pages of differing sizes

Your document could not be created: We do not accept PDF documents with pages of differing sizes.


I have looked through the pdf document and original in Word. 

All looks OK to me.


What should I do next?



  • I had the same problem. You may want to go to Word program, print review for page sizes.

    Go into size, determine the size you want, and apply to whole document-- not just This section. Then convert to PDF and upload that to Lulu.

  • Great suggestions Josephine and Maggie!
  • Hello! If anyone runs across this forum, I was getting the same error. I was exporting my document from Indesign. Apparently, Lulu needs single paged documents, so no facing pages. Once I turned off facing pages, it uploaded just fine! Just thought I would let anyone know this, since I was trying to find out the answer from these forums, but couldn't.


  • I merged files created by Publisher and Word for the same page size.  Looking at the rejected pdf, I can see that the Word page in pdf is slightly narrower than a Publisher page in pdf.  Don't know why and don't know the workaround.
  • First I would verify that the Publisher and Word pages are both set up to the same size. If it's a very slight difference, Publisher may be including bleed margins. If that's the case, you could adjust your Word file to match.
    Otherwise, I would try converting from Publisher to Word, merge the files in Word, then export the PDF.
