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.

Different page count depending on Color or Black/White?

Hello!

I have successfully uploaded a Black/White book and now when I'm using the exact same PDF file to create the color edition, I get an error that the book contains too many pages.

The book is 730 pages and the Black/White edition worked out fine. Is there a difference between the color and black/white edition when it comes to page count? The KB does not say anything about it. I created a case with the support but they might take long before answering.

Yes 730 pages is a lot and I got some whitespace within it but that is because sometimes I need to use a whole page to display a diagram/illustration because it is a technical book and I want to make sure the reader can see the diagram in very clear detail.

Anyone else experienced the same issue?

Thanks in advance!

    Was the PDF for the color version the same one you uploaded or a download of the print-ready file from your first B&W edition?

    If it was the download of the print-ready file, the fact that the wizard will adjust page size to allow for trim may have caused the problem.
  • There could also be concern based on retail distribution. The number of pages we can print versus the number of pages a retailers will print do not align perfectly for all formats.

    Ok, just checked; you can do colour for 6x9 and 8.5x11 for up to 740 pages. But book in colour will cost you about 200 dollars. :/

    It's about $60 for 290 pages.
