Join Tony Harmer for an in-depth discussion in this video From Word to EPUB, part of Creating Ebooks for the Kindle.
…I'm sure that Word users will be pleased to note that…you have several options for getting an ePub out of Word.…In fact, it's possible to convert a DOC file directly into an…EPUB, and I can think of at least three ways that could happen.…The only thing is, you'll have little or no control at…all over the document's appearance with at least two of those.…And that might not be the best experience for you or your reader.…We'll take a look at a couple of methods that do work here.…Firstly, converting to a web page which is…an intermediary step but needs conversion into ePub afterwards.…
And also converting via Calibre.…So, this document is prepared already, everything inside…of here will translate across into an ePub.…All of the styles have been implemented as styles, nothing locally formatted.…By that I mean selecting anything and changing things via…the ribbon up here, so everything is based on a style.…Remember that ePub doesn't have any concept of a page as such because…the layout can change depending on the user's text size preference.…
