I've tried resizing the screen on my chromebook, but KDP still wont allow me to launch the previewer for my paperback. Do I need Adobe flash ?
Any helpful answers ? Thanks

You need CreateSpace (dot com) which, remarkably, is also an Amazon company.

I think I read a thread about Chromebook on Kboards Writers Cafe -- a very good place to lurk. It you don't get an answer here, try there.

(Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook. Each does one thing well and the other thing poorly.)

Good luck! -- NJ

Both the Createspace previewer and the KDP e-book previewer use Flash.

I have no idea about KDP Print, but it's likely that it uses Flash, too. In any case, you'd be much better off at Createspace.
