Unwanted page breaks during OTD to MOBI conversion

When I convert my OTD file to a MOBI file, Calibre automatically inserts a page break on every new header 1 and 2. My problem is that my book is structured somewhat like thisChapter 1Chapter 1.1 Chapter 1.2 ... Chapter 2Chapter 2.1 Chapter 2.2 ... Chapter 3Chapter 3.1 Chapter 3.2 ... ... The title of x is always on a its own page with the title of x.1 and its content being on the next page. I want there to be a page break at the start of a new chapter and a new subchapter, except x.1, with...

Recognizing KFX virtues

Just to report that in this instance KFX is the format which rendered best my text: Inspired by a recent link in the workshop, Quote: Originally Posted by Doitsu (Post 3825582) ...

When you THOUGHT Calibre conversion was broken.

First try other ebooks or Wordprocessor documents freshly made on another computer. Symptoms: Using "Docx" there would be no page breaks in AZW3, ePub or mobi. Mobi headings would have outline numbering. Importing the docx back into Libre Office Writer would "create" up to 10 "converted page" styles. About 280 6" x 9" pages. Using "ODT" you'd get page breaks in all formats except mobi. Epub and Mobi would have the strange outline numbering. Well, examining the converted output in Calibre Edi...

RTL Mobi Conversion

Hi, I'm converting EPUB to MOBI , so I could use it on Kindle. At first it was direction:ltr by default when opened on Calibre viewer, so I added the code: body { direction:rtl; } It made everything work great. BUT! when I moved the file to my kindle, it just removed the direction:rtl CSS command. Anyone has a solution? TNX!

Kindle Conversion error

I've used our tool many times with great results, thanks for all of your work! Today I tried to convert as usual but was met with the error below: I'm on Ubuntu linux using Kindle for PC (version 1.15.0 last updated 11/18/2018).

tag in the index_split_XXX.html files

Does the tag in the section of each index_split_XXX.html file do/mean anything when converted from ePub/HTML to MOBI or AZW? I've been converting DOCX files to ePub for edit consolidation, then converting to MOBI or AZW for Kindle reading. Some of the converted EPUB files have Unknown , others have Book Title , others have one of the or contents in the . What is generally used to fill this field and/or is there someplace in the Conversion panel I can specify the ? OR does it matter at all?

How to display book cover images on android e-reader device?

I have purchased a Likebook Mars ebook reader. I have about 2000 ebooks on my PC arranged with Calibre, mostly in MOBI format. In the Calibre Library folder on PC, all the ebooks are arranged in different folders with book cover images downloaded by me. In some cases, however, the downloaded book cover images do not match the cover images of the MOBI format ebooks.

Troubleshooting Books Transferred from Calibre don't show up on Kindle Voyage book list

I've got a weird problem. When I transfer books from my caliber library they never seem to show up on my Kindle voyage book list. If I plug the Kindle in to my Windows PC, the books are in directories under documents. But they never seem to show up in the book list on my Kindle, nor can I search for them and find them. The only workaround I have found so far is to manually copy the MOBI files from each book's directory into the home path of the documents directory. Then the books show up right a...

A true story (mostly)

Keep PDF look, just convert to MOBI

Hi there, So, I'm a total newb. Part of the reason I got my Fire HD 8 was so I could save some professional documents to my Kindle for easy viewing. Some of my PDF's have saved to MOBI format beautifully. Others, not so much. I'm looking to keep the look of each PDF as I have it now. I'd like to import it to my Kindle library as I've found they load much faster that way. However, some of my PDFs actually convert to an ebook format and the text is spread across several pages and it separat...

Author Sort by Surname/Firstname Inconsistent on Kindle 4

Hi - I was wondering if someone could help me out. I've searched for an answer to this and nothing people have suggested in past threads seems to be working! (I assume this is the right subforum as it seems like the answer will be on the Calibre side of things, but if this would be better in the Kindle forum then feel free to move it.) I'm having an issue with the way my library is sorted on the Kindle - I've edited the entire library's metadata through Calibre, and moved it onto my Kindle 4 de...

Archive of Our Own (AO3) to start using Calibre for EPUB/MOBI/AZW3 downloads

I just came across this announcement: https://archiveofourown.org/admin_posts/12212 I tried their sample EPUB and it now contains series, comments and tags. Whoohoo! Their old engine only had title, author and publisher, and the MOBI output didn't even have proper TOC nor chapter breaks. As someone who often downloads directly from AO3 to reader and rarely accesses desktop Calibre GUI (ergo FanFicFare), this is a very welcome development. :drinks:

I have started to get strange results when I convert. The new file appears to be readable and transfers to my Kindle Paperwhite OK but I get an error when I try to copy it to another Caliber library.

Square box instead of apostrophe in entire book

Dear all, I have a very similar problem to this: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=232764 I have a EPUB File, which I can transfer without any problems to my Kindle Paperwhite. But throughout the book, all the apostrophes are replaced by this square icon-thingy. I get that the apostrophy in the book is apparently something that the kindle cannot read/regonize: But what is the solution to this for me? I would suspect it to be quite simply? I get, that I can somehow maybe...

Autosend MOBI file via email to Kindle after conversion

I know calibre can auto-send news via email to the Kindle. I'm trying to find a function that will auto-send email to Kindle after conversion of a file (eg. epub). I'd love to see a function that "automatically send converted books to email" similar to the function in the "Behaviour" panel. Is this possible?

Cover shrinks when converting ePUB to MOBI in Cailbre only when sent to iPAD

It's my first time on the forum - I've read many helpful posts over the last few weeks so thanks to everyone who has contributed. I've now struck a problem creating an eBook that I can't seem to solve and am hoping someone might be able to help. I'm creating an eBook in Calibre for publication and need to produce a MOBI I can upload to KDP.

Converted to Kindle format (MOBI or other), won’t show up as “book”

I have searched everywhere for answers, and have only found dates information at best. My ultimate goal here is to get Whispersync for VOICE to work between an Audible audiobook (it has Whispersync, according to their library) and an e-book sideloaded into the kindle app on iOS devices (iPad and iPhone). The best info I can come up with says it won’t work because my sideloading has this far only yielded a ‘document’ in kindle, not an actual ‘book’. I’ve tried removing the [PDOC] tag in the M...

AWZ(3) vs KFX

Hello folks Ive been a Calibre user for years and used EPUB until now. Got myself an Oasis, and thought ill better covert some 5k book to mobi (some are already in movie and epub format). Have read read loads and loads of MOBI vs AWZ vs AWZ3 vs KFX - jee , I am more confused than I was when I started. I want to have the best possible option, not too bothered about size etc. Also thought of getting rid of all the other formats, as I doubt Ill ever use an iPad again to read, after the Oasis ...

Bulk Convert Mobi to Mobi

Hi, I need to convert a large number of mobi files to mobi files (yes, mobi to mobi). It's because the author data on the existing mobi files is picking up "firstname lastname" and I need to reconvert (then it picks up authorsort as lastname, firstname). BUT I can't define the input format in calibre for a bulk conversion - it picks up epubs to convert unless I convert each book individually. Any suggestions?
