I'm designing my photo plus text book, 13" x 11" in Word and saving as a doc file, because things got reformatted when I converted to PDF. As suggested, I saved my template at "portrait" but kept the size as width-13" and height- 11". Word is picking up on the mistake and when I go to page layout, it still says the orientation is "landscape". When I change it to "portrait" it changes the whole page and I have to redo the page again.

You must create your book as Landscape 13x11.
If you upload the finished .doc Lulu will create a landcsape PDF.
If you create your own PDF then you must ensure the pDF setting are for landscape and size 13x11 otherwise you will end up with wrongly orientated PDF.

The same subject but a different question. I am new on Lulu. My first book had two files, both .doc. The first was a one-page 8.5x11 introduction in portrait view, the second was 189-page 11x8.5 table in landscape view. It came out fine. I have a second book, very similar, with one page portrait and 134 page table. I cannot get it to load - either it resizes the landscape to portrait, or says it can't do different sizes. I would like to show you the files and the print-ready, but I don't know how.
A different book attempt has all interior pages in 11x8.5 landscape view. It resizes all to portrait view. I do not see a an allowable size of 11x8.5 in the price table.

I am just starting to upload my word docs into adobe .pdf format. I want to create a 9X7 landscape book. I am very confused by these directions from David Woodward:
POD printers tend to print landscape pages sideways, so even if you are creating a wide format book (9 x 7), the uploaded source document page orientation must be set to Portrait, with page dimensions defined with the wider width than height.
Very confused here.
