y books documentswerein the following order:
Cover.indd (an RGB jpeg image that was 650px wide by 950px high)*
able of Contents page**
he story in all its documents*the minimum image size is 600 x 800 pixels. Any smaller and I discovered it will be rejected byAmazon!**
C (table of contents) page doesnt include any page numbers, just the titles of your chapters orstories. I tried to add links in InDesign but the program wont export these to epub, so I did thismanually in Sigil with good results.See link here.Next I figured out what types of styles to use:1.
(use for chapter titles, paragraphs)2.
(use for individual things like a single drop cap or an italicized word)I assigned styles to all the headers and for most of the paragraphs a Body style was all I needed. I useda couple of different paragraph styles for the different sized headers on my title page and that wasabout it.
riginally, I was trying to be fancy by including drop caps on all the first paragraphs, but later I found thisis a royal pain in the neck and dropped the drop caps! If youre super keen on including these, I suggestchecking out my references at the bottom.I hit Ctrl+Smany times!
he first thing I realized would help was to show all the hidden characters in each document Iwas editing:
Deleted any extra paragraph marks that were used just to create extra space.
nly one returnallowed!3.
Just to make sure everything is what I thought it should be, I went to
t > F
andclicked on the
tab to find out if there were any styles in the document that shouldnt bethere. I did find some old unused styles, I think I mustve changed my mid about something and just pressed delete on any ones I wasnt using.Also, while I was on the
selection, Iclicked on the tab marked
and looked for any tabs or other types of marks. all thoseparagraph marks and other funny squiggles (by pressing the @ button you can get a completelist)
