    How to get "Page curl" active in mobi eBook?

    fyi: I can confirm that 'page curl' is added by Amazon automatically. I just published a novel there today and when I got it from Amazon directly, I tried it out and see that the 'page curl' is present (without me doing anything).

    How to get "Page curl" active in mobi eBook?

    Hi, I found out the following: In my other 2 books that I published on Amazon (more than a year ago, not knowing anything about 'page curl' back then) - when I get them directly from Amazon (purchase) rather than putting them onto my kindle myself, the 'page curl' feature is automatically present WITHOUT me doing ANYTHING. So, I am confident that when I upload my new book to Amazon for publishing, the 'page curl' will be available (without me doing anything). Best, Norman
  3. Maybe this is not a part of Storyist itself? But how do people generate kindle ebooks with the 'page curl' feature where the pages turn in an animated fashion on the Kindle reader? I use Storyist with kindlegen 2.9. Is there anything newer? Thanks for your help and sorry if this should have been posted in another group. Norman

    Inserting an Image and converting to .mobi (setsize issue)

    Hi Steve, Thank you so much for looking into this. My kindlegen version is: KindleGen_Mac_i386_v2_9.zip I've inserted many pictures with the size of my choosing in my previous Storyist novel and it worked beautifully !!! I so much hope you can help me figure this one out. I am not aware of doing anything different than for my last novel. My font is different, but I doubt that has any influence. If if works for you, can you please give me the precise steps you take? Thank you! Norman
  5. Hi, previously (in older versions) I could insert an image and right click on it to set the image size and the conversion to .mobi respected that new image size (e.g. an image on the title page, or dedication page, or right underneath a chapter title would show in the set size) Now (version 3.4.3 (3468), when I do that and open the .mobi on my Kindle Fire the image comes up in full size always. Did something change or is there a sure way to add an image, set the new size, and have the size honored in the conversion to .mobi? Thanks, Norman

    Search bug

    This defect/bug plagues me a lot: 1. Open your novel in storyist 2. Search for something that occurs a few time in your document 3. Click the next ( '>') button after each found match till there is no match anymore -> the application crashes
  10. Hi, how can I go directly to a particular page, e.g. 272 in storyist? Thanks, Norman
  11. Hi, 1. How could I add a Table to my Novel? 2. What is the best way to add a poem so the .mobi file respects the line break at the end of each line in a verse? I found that after conversion to a .mobi file the line break was not honored. If I use a normal 'Enter' at the end of each line then the .mobi file adds an empty line after each text line of the poem. Question 1 is really to find out if I could get the peom in as a table and perhaps the eBook conversion would then honor that format. Any idea is appreciated, Thanks, Norman

    How to inserta a Line Break rather then a new paragraph

    Thank you Steve ! That works nicely. Much appreciated. Norman
  13. Hi, My Novel has a few poems in it where I want the lines to end with a LINE BREAK rather then a new paragraph break. How can I insert a Line Break into my text? I tried 'Shift + Enter' but that produced also 'new paragraph' break, just line 'Enter'. Thanks, Norman

    Export to .docx or .rtf format and images

    Hi Marguerite, Thanks a lot for your reply. Very helpful. Norman
  15. Hi, I want to submit my novel to an editor. Their preferred format is .docx. 1. When I export to the .docx format a lot of formating (tabs/indents especially) go lost while the .rtf format seems to keep them. Everything is left aligned in .docx. What can I do about that? Naturally I want the editor to see the text as close to what I formatted it in storyist. 2. Also, at the beginning of each chapter I have a little drawing inserted (works VERY nice in storyist) and they all show up neatly when I export to ebook format (e.g. .mobi). But in the .docx or the .rft they don't show. How can I make the images to show up there? Again, I'd like the editor to see what I see (as close to that as possible) so s/he gets the right impression. 3. When editors use MS Word, what is the best export format in your experience? 4. Has anyone of you used BubbleCow.com editor services? Thank your for your kind help, Norman
