Re: PDF conversion and submission problems?

Have you tried reducing the image size, if that's the only problem? Good luck!

Re: PDF conversion and submission problems?

This is my first time using CS. I used Word 2007 and the CS 8.5x8.5 template for my children's book, Five Cheetahs.  All interior pages and pictures look great after downloading on CS, except for the title page.  My title page contains three lines with double spacing. My doc. looks fine, but it does not center on the page when downloaded. The first line begins well below the center of the page. I have downloaded my inerior many times after trying to correct this by using the "enter key" to adjust line spacing at the top and bottom of the title page, but I cannot seem to fix this format issue.  I called CS for help, but unfortunately they do not help with format issues but sent me to the Community for help - HELP!

Re: PDF conversion and submission problems?

I've been trying like crazy to upload my first book as a file, but this automatic reviewer keeps saying I need to embed the Myriad Pro font into my document. But I've checked and checked and I haven't used Myriad Pro in the document at all! Will I keep getting denied because of this issue? Any ideas? Help!

Re: PDF conversion and submission problems?

I did a google search on myriad pro font and found:

 

Myriad is a humanist sans-serif typeface designed by Robert Slimbach and Carol Twombly for Adobe Systems. The typeface is best known for its usage by Apple Inc., replacing Apple Garamond as Apple's corporate font since 2002. Myriad is easily distinguished from other sans-serif fonts due to its special "y" descender (tail) and slanting "e" cut. Myriad is similar to Frutiger.

 

Are you using Apple Garamond in your text?  If so that is probably the reason for the error message.  Others may be able to help you more, as my answer is just an educated guess.

Re: PDF conversion and submission problems?

Formatted templates can be very difficult to use. The position of the title is predetermined. I also found that some information from the reviewer can be incorrect. I am currently working with CS because of that very issue. Call customer support and ask to speak to a supervisor. They can look at your pdf with you on the phone and tell you what's wrong. After getting incorrect information via emails and through the regular folks answering the phone, that's exactly who I'm working with. Best of luck.

Re: PDF conversion and submission problems?

Luckily, I went back to my Five Cheetahs word document and played around with the header/footer.  I changed something which made it go to the center.  I downladed it again to CS and it worked!    Thanks for your input.

Re: PDF conversion and submission problems?

Try Adobe ExportPDF

It converts pictures (it did my vectors), but does not do well on fonts in a text box. It is not free-about $20 for unlimited conversions. You do not download software, but upload your document to the website. It will convert to .doc, .docx, .xlsx, or .rtf.

Re: PDF conversion and submission problems?

Hi,

I already have my novel as a pdf set to 5 x 8 trim size that a company generated for me. How do I upload it to CreateSpace? When I open the blank word document template and try and paste in, I only get the title page rather than the whole thing. Do I need to use the word template at all as I'm uploading a pdf - I'm very confused!

Re: PDF conversion and submission problems?

The PDF should be of your book . . . converted from your Word file. It does not get put anywhere (like in a template, etc.)  If the PDF looks like your book, all the pages are right, one pdf page to one book page, then from your Interior panel  (My Account > Member Dashboard > Title > Project Home Page > Setup > Interior), or if you haven't entered the title, start with New Title, select guided, you upload your PDF.

If the company has already supplied you with a formatted PDF, you just upload that directly to CS via the title setup in your account dashboard -- you don't need the Word template. The templates are for unformatted text.

Re: PDF conversion and submission problems?

I guess you're probably sorted now - but I've been having this selfsame problem. I was using the downloaded templates, but removed every occurence of Myriad Pro font, changed all the in-built styles, but still the error persisted. Then I found it - the Myriad Pro font is used on the page numbering of the template, and there was one page (the very last one) which hadn't changed. So that may be the problem - locating where it occurs is another one!

Re: PDF conversion and submission problems?

You can try using "Save as" from file menu; and then Select "Word" format. It should work. Good luck!
