Trying to make pocketbook - getting resize message and text not exactly square on page
I'm trying to make a pocketbook. I used the Lulu pocket doc template in Word, then saved and uploaded my interior content as pdfs. I'm getting the message "
We had to resize your document in order to fit the trim size you chose.
If you are not happy with this change, you can:
- Change your trim size:
Choose a different trim size.
Resize your file and upload it again:"
The pocket doc template has page sizes 10.79cm x 17.42 cm. I see that pocketbook says 10.79cm x 17.46cm on the initial choose book size page. I even tried resizing the length to 17.46cm but I still get the resize message.
When I review the interior content pdf that Lulu makes me the page dimensions look correct to my eye, but, for some reason, (and it I thought it could be my eyes playing tricks but I asked my husband to look and he thought the same) it's as if the text is not exatly square on the page! The margin seems not a consistent width down the length of the page - on the lefthand pages it seems a little wider at the bottom than the top for example, but by less than a letter's width, I'd say. Has anyone come across this? It's only a tiny, hardly noticable variance, but I don't want to order a printed copy if it's not right.
Can anyone advise me on the exact page size to use in Word so I don't get the resize message please? Maybe that's something to do with it. Many thanks.
