I'm now attempting to upload revision 12 of my book. However, I've run into an unexpected problem. My DOC file is 273 pages, but the print-ready file is 271. I've noticed that everything until page 18 at the very bottom is the same as my DOC file. At this point, some text from page 19 is being moved onto 18 and this screws up my table of contents (scene 3 starts first thing on page 23 in my DOC file, but the print-ready version has scene 3 start on the bottom of page 22. Before, I didn't have this problem. Any idea what I can do to realign everything?

Is there another alternative? I'm not going to pay for something because something didn't work right in the first place. I've never had problems until just now. Even the previously working revision 11 is now flawed in the same regard. As in, is there a free DOC to PDF converter I could use that Lulu accepts?

I apologize, I cannot think of anything else. But goodluck, I will drop you a line when I think of anything. But can't you send your file to a friend or install a later version of word?

I have no friends and I otherwise can't afford upgrading Word either. I guess it seems like I'm stuck having to find a DOC to PDF converter as far as I can tell....

I've been using CutePDF, but I have a problem - it won't set the page size to 6x9. When I do do that, I keep getting a "section 1's margins are outside the printable area" and I get it 13 times. Half inch margins are not a problem so why is the page size getting set to 8.5x11?

At this point, some text from page 19 is being moved onto 18
Suggest first look at bottom page 18 of your doc. Insert a Page Break. (INSERT>BREAK>PAGE BREAK)
Using line feeds(i.e. hitting the big button on the right of the keyboard with the big arrow to move text down to a new page) can mess things up.
You could try displaying formatting charactersby hitting the pilcrow symbol - a backward capital P - that will show where page breaks are,
And a good suggestion is to create the PDF yourself using one of the free converters
