Hi- I have created the Table of Contents using MS Word. While viewing on the KDP Launch Preview, it came up perfect and nice however on the Amazon.com Look Inside preview, the first couple of pages of the Table of Content shows shadow and misalignments for the contents. This happened only on paper book. Any suggestion please?

1. Upload the PDF format,
2. Was it created with TOC generator by Word?

What is the "KDP Launch Preview"?

There are two rules to getting a good-looking print edition. The first is to upload a PDF laid out exactly as you want the book to appear. The second is to shun KDP Print and use CreateSpace or IngramSpark.

(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
