Kinddle publication guidelines
Amazons has just published a new issue of its Kindle release policy, 2015.3. There is a review log on page 2 of the directives. In short, there is new information about using KindleGen to build your mobile phone files; some picture policy changes, an area that changes quickly; bi-directional notes are now possible; there is information about trying Kindle manuals (always test Kindle and every single operating system - on machines, not just in previews or simulators).
Publication guidelines are easy to access: I' m downloading it from Kindle Previewer (after verifying that I have the latest Previewer version).
Amazons Kindle Publishing Guidelines
Often I see users complain in author discussion boards that they have trouble reformatting and compiling their e-books for posting on Kindle. Amazons good, sound policies are available to writers in a PDF file that can be downloaded for free. After opening the PDF file, look at the top right of the file and click on the page with the down-button.
Amazons also releases a free Kindle manual entitled Building Your BooktoF Kindle. It is important to note that these policies are only for Kindle electronic notebooks. Printing is a completely different game. Although you still encounter problems after reviewing the Amazon policies, I also provide a reformatting services in conjunction with reviewing and updating - even if this sometimes involves conditions.

In order to create a Kindle library, you put together a series of data and run it from the Amazon KindleGen processor. All that comes out is a. wobi-sheet. This is the data on the Kindle for read. First you have to create the books from.
4 ) Open this directory and let's go through these individual data sets. That'?s the front page of your album. Just keep the HTML and read the Amazon manual to see how to create your mark-up. That is the index. You will see that each of the links refers to a part of the Kindle textbook that uses anchoring points.
That is your style sheet and it is how you will create your books with CSS3 I have designed my books so that the text is gray (cripes) and the pictures are floating to the right. Amazon has a relatively new and quite thrilling feature for supporting Cubase 3 because of the new possibilities in designing.
It is an encrypted text document that will tell the Kindle how your script is made. Substance between tags define the meta data for the books using default Dublin Core elements: header, author, date, etc. Kindle says where things are between the tag. You will see, for example, that it has links to all the documents we are currently checking: the artwork, the HTML directory and HTML directory images, the style sheet and the NCX directory images (I'll tell you about it in a moment).
In between the -tag, Kindle says the order in which these HTML pages should be viewed. If you open your text on a Kindle, for example, you will first find the directory. You' re going to meet the books. Do you see how the "idref" in the items matches the "id" in the items?
This way the spinal column knows which HTML data it should present. Of course, this adjustment is necessary, otherwise Kindle does not know what to charge. Several HTMLs can be created and the order in which they are accessible can be set in . Make sure you also refer to these HTMLs in your so that Kindle knows where they are!
Do you know the beam at the end of a Kindle that has dots that allow you to jump to different parts? NCX files tell Kindle where these points are. I' ve also put a directory named "img" in the downloaded version and inserted a beautiful de Kooning image, which is imbedded in mykindlebook.html.
This is the minimal amount of data you need to create a Kindle workbook. Right-click on the "My Kindle Book" directory and select "Compress My Kindle Book".
