Need Help with Kindle Create Dilemma
« on: November 14, 2019, 09:11:48 am »
I loaded my book manuscript from Word into Kindle Create. All went well until I got to endnotes. I saw a few mistakes in my endnotes that needed to be edited. Kindle Create does allow editing of endnotes. How do I solve this problem? Will I need to correct my endnotes in Word, format them again, and then upload my entire manuscript from Word into Kindle Create again? Anyone have a solution to share with me. Thanks!

    Generally you have to reload the entire manuscript to do any edits.

    I've edited in Kindle Create - but I always have the original manuscript open at the same time so that I make the same edits in both places. That works for small changes (the rogue comma, an annoying double space). If you have lots of edits (eg, changing spelling from traditional English to American English), it's much easier to do it in the original manuscript and upload the lot in a new project to Kindle Create, and then do the chapter formatting, index, etc.

    Kindle Create has been getting better over the years, but generally it's a good idea to keep tabs on what is editable vs. what isn't.  If you run into something that KC can't edit, yes, you're pretty much back to editing the Word doc and starting again.
