How accurate is KDP viewer?
« on: October 20, 2019, 02:46:53 am »
Hello,
I'm formatting a book for kindle and it comes up exactly as I want on the KDP viewer and on my kindle when I send it to myself. But there are epub errors (about 10). Someone told me, it won't work when I publish it. But why not if it looks good on the viewer. Is that the point if it?
In advance,
Thanks
A

    The web Previewer isnt always accurate. And depending on the epub errors, the book can have problems that affect user experience in ways that would never show up in a previewer. Many if not most vendors will reject a book that does not pass epubcheck.

    Ok - that's interesting. I'll perhaps make sure it passes epub check .
    Thanks for your help.
