Join Tony Harmer for an in-depth discussion in this video One file per chapter, part of Creating Ebooks for the Kindle.
…It's easier for a device to deal with a collection of…small linked files, than it is, one great big, huge file.…You might remember in the last chapter, when…we actually created this file from the HTML,…Calibre was able to split it apart into…chapters, and it did that using an XPath expression.…We didn't look much at the conversion process at that time.…Here we're looking in a later chapter.…More of that.…And so if I go back to convert books just here.…And just choose perhaps to convert this out to a different format.…
You can see some of the details around conversion.…And if I come down here to structure detection, you can see that this XPath…expression is looking for certain things, and you can improve…on that or not, depending on how you work it, using these fields…here, but most of the time with the default, it works just fine.…What if it hasn't split them apart quite enough, or you want to merge some files?…Well that's where we need to swap across to editing that book.…
So I'm going to right click on the title here, and choose Edit Book.…
