Is there a way to get a pdf out of Kindle Create?
Basically, I had plain text in a Word document and uploaded it onto Kindle Create. From there, I used Kindle Create's built-in functions to change fonts and formatting until it was publish-ready.
However, I want to publish both in eBook and Paperback. Paperback seems to only allow .doc and pdf instead of the Kindle Create file which is .kpf.
Is there a way to generate a pdf with Kindle Create? Or a method to upload my kpf file (or convert it to another type of file) for Paperback?
As BL says, work from your Word doc. I prefer OpenOffice Writer to build the actual PDF.
You have discovered one of the limitations of Kindle Create: it can't be used for anything else. You can't sell that version on the Apple iBookstore, and you can't at present make a paperback out of it.
You say you UPLOADED your Word doc to Kindle Create. Does that you mean you used the online version rather than the plug-in for Word? Did you find it easy to work with? You apparently were pleased with the result; would you share the ASIN with us so others can check it out?
KC has been around for a while, but the results seem to be mixed.
(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.)
