Join Tony Harmer for an in-depth discussion in this video One file per chapter, part of Creating Ebooks for the Kindle.
…Currently, the book we have here, is in one big long file from…start to finish and we need to split that down, to make it easier for the device.…So, we can do that in a couple of different ways.…In fact, if I come down to the beginning of…A Study in Scarlet, just here, and click just before that.…I can then go to the Edit menu and choose Split at Cursor.…You see that now generates a separate file, like so.…
