When I uploaded my word doc manuscript to paperback I lost 15 number references. I also tried the html version and the same thing happened. What can I do to get my reference numbers properly uploaded? Thanks.

Ray:

Your best bet is to produce it as a PDF and upload it that way. When you upload a Word file, you are completely reliant on automated processes building the book for you. You'll have no control over numerous things, endnotes/footnotes/x-refs being just a few of those things.

ALSO, make sure you read the myriad posts here about NOT using KDP Print Beta to produce a print book as opposed to Createspace, and you may save yourself a world of grief.

It's very odd, but the rule for ebook and print are 180 degrees different in at least two respects:

1) Always upload a PDF for print; never upload a PDF for an ebook.

2) Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook.

Good luck! -- NJ
