hi i converted my book through calibre.it all looks fine for amazon but I wanted to publish through draft to digital as well.when I try to upload through to it it comes up invalid with lots of errors.can anybody help me fix this issue please.thank you
I found that I had to go through and make a lot of manual changes before D2D stopped giving me errors. They aren't usually as worrying as they first look (plus a lot can be fixed at once with one search/replace). I'm sure ^ someone who actually does book formatting can help best, but if you post the errors, people will be able to help.
Likely you are using stuff in your base file which will not convert or convert badly.
As with any ebook, one needs to understand it is not a pdf where you can design how it looks. You need a base file which is optimized for flow and for display on ereaders. Meaning no extra fonts without hassle, no fancy formatting word may provide you etc.
Use their checker https://draft2digital.com/book/epubcheck/upload
and see what it spits out. Again usually you can fix many of the mistakes by removing the root problems, so even if you have tons of errors in a file that is not a problem.
