Join Tony Harmer for an in-depth discussion in this video Converting with calibre, part of Creating Ebooks for the Kindle.
…While I'm not convinced about using it in production, it is…possible to, convert to the MOBI format, directly inside of Caliber.…I'm working here, with a title we've used in, earlier chapters.…So I'm just going to target that inside of, the list.…I'm going to come up to, Convert Books.…And choose, Convert Individually.…You notice, you do have the option to, bulk convert if you have a…series of titles to change, but this one will do just now, perfectly well.…
And so here's my input format of EPUB and…on the other side, my output format of MOBI.…In the category area on the left, I have a MOBI category output there.…Here I have a series of choices.…And the ability to be able to choose between the old format,…MOBI 7, the new KF8 format, or a file, that supports both.…And there I'll click OK.…And that job will begin its conversion, like so.…When the file opens, you can look at it inside of Caliber's built in viewer.…
But the rendering isn't faithful.…What you should do is, find the output file, in your…Caliber library, and at the very least, check it on, Kindle Previewer.…
