Probs with Calibre and Kindle Previewer
I just tested a basic format in word only using h1 (header 1), page breaks and saving it webpage filter (htm). When I added it to Calibre I inserted the TOC and proceeded to convert it.
I bought in Kindle Formatting from Brian Barrage and followed his instructions to the letter though he is Mac based and I am PC. I assumed that a mobi format was from the Mac and an epub from the PC. It was not clear in his info.
I downloaded Kindle Previewer only to find a few months later it was prompting me to upgrade to the latest version which I did. I then wanted to preview my test document in the epub format but the option to open it in Kindle Previewer was greyed out. I attempted this several times without any success. I then uninstalled it and reinstalled the Kindle Previewer to find that I could not open it.
Something like this should be soooo simple to do but is proving so soooo difficult.
I'm a graphic designer and used to using really complicated programs having downloaded lots of them over the years as well as training people on them. These two simple programs are doing my head in. HELP.........
This is just the beginning as I want to illustrate books and design covers what chance do I have when these two basic programs are proving so fiddly?
I know, I know, you are shaking your heads, and, saying go and get them processed by someone else but these are things I want to execute myself.
I've got to say I've never felt so stooopid or helpless!!! Is it just me or are others experiencing these problems?
As I have just ventured into this type of formatting arena I would really appreciate some sound advice from a Pro.
