Images and Embedded Fonts



I am trying to upload my document to CreateSpace, but it keeps giving me two issues:

1) images are less than 300dpi (but they're not)

2) Fonts are not embedded. (but I've ticked emebed fonts in Word.)


I'm lost. Please help me.

Re: Images and Embedded Fonts

Hate to be a buzzkill, but you're asking for trouble by uploading a Word document and allowing CreateSpace to convert it to a PDF for you. Create your own PDF, but not with Word's PDF-generation function. Instead, use a module such as doPDF, CutePDF, etc., or import the Word file into OpenOffice/LibreOffice and Export as PDF. Then examine each page of the PDF in Adobe Reader (which is free). This procedure is the only way to avoid unpleasant surprises.
