Common Word to PDF Book File Conversion Problems
At DiggyPOD, we review a lot of PDF files that were created from Word everyday. Here are the top four common problems that we see with PDF Book files, and how you can fix these issues.
- Fonts not being embedded.
- Word Document Page size doesn't match Book Trim Size.
- Bad Margins and page number placement.
- Page numbers in the binding area.
How to Embed the Fonts with Microsoft Word
Fonts not embedded during the Word to PDF conversion is the number one mistake we see. Our online Word to PDF conversion software will embed the fonts for you automatically. But if for some reason we do not have the exact same fonts as your document uses. Please download the doPDF printer driver and watch the video tutorials to learn how to embed your fonts with the doPDF software.
Match the Word Page Size to the Book Trim Size
We also get a lot of files that have the wrong Page size. The Word document Page Size must match the Trim Size of the book you want to produce. The file Page size problem is quite common because the default Page size in Microsoft Word is 8.5" x 11". You will need to change the Word Page size to match the book Trim Size. Please review our Book Interior Templates and Margins section to see how to properly set-up your page size in Microsoft Word. If the Word Page size and Book Trim Size don't match, the Word to PDF online conversion will report an error.
Adjust Microsoft Document Margins for your Book
Book margins are another common issue we see quite a bit. When you use our Word to PDF online conversion software, you will be able to download a PDF proof in book layout form. This PDF proof will show you if the margins are centered correctly for the left and right hand pages. You want to make sure your text does not go into the binding of the book, as this will make the copy hard to read.
Keep your Page Numbers away from the Binding Area
We get a lot of files converted from Word to PDF with page numbers on the binding side of the book. By viewing the PDF Proof, you will be able to see if your page numbers are on the binding side of the book. The converted PDF Proof will have an overlay showing the safe area to keep the copy from as well. Please view our book margins video to learn how to set-up your margins correctly.
