I have prepared a picture book for adults and want to publish it through Comic Creator. I made the images in Photoshop and made html TOC manually through word 2007. when comic creator starts making mobi book, everything is OK except the table of contents: the links do not work. I mean when I click on words on toc, it does not go to the specific page (image) that is expected to go.
Can you help me? I tried a lot to solve the problem but couldn't. Thanks a lot for your help.
Fixed-layout ebooks normally don't have a TOC, so you don't have to add this feature.
You have to know HTML to build a TOC for Kindle Comic Creator, but you can add a TOC to a fixed-layout ebook using one of the following templates (no knowledge of HTML is required). You can download a detailed tutorial from the following post (third file from the top, named "FormattingChildren'sBooksAndComics.zip"): http://kdp.amazon.com/community/thread.jspa?messageID=335297#335297
Thanks a lot. Downloaded the books. But in the two following links, there is the same zip book 'how to become smarter'. I could not download any template.
OPF, NCX, and HTML template #2
Is there a simple html template for a TOC for Comic Creator? The suggested download just talks about the html file. Since only ONE html file can be added via Comic Creator, it would be helpful to start with a template (or example) that actually works. I know a little about html, but any part of my html file, containing "href =" does NOT work. I have tried many things, including the following two things:
<! ..... <a href="Page-4.html">Chapter 1 ......>
<! ...... <a href="html/Page-4.html">Chapter 1 .....>

PS - My input to the Comic Creator is just one PDF file for each page. After looking around, I see that each page is converted to an html file named: Page-1.html, Page-2.html, etc. These files are stored in a subdirectory named "html".
What you require is certainly possible for KKBC. You can create a TOC for your KKBC ebook in the following way(but you will have to do it manually in html using Sigil):
*Save your KKBC doc (without toc) as a package to your desktop.
*Download Sigil (a free epub editor)
*Download the KindleImport Sigil plugin from the Mobileread Forum to your desktop and install it into Sigil.
*Open Sigil and use the KindleImport plugin to import the Kindle mobi from your KKBC package into Sigil as an epub.
*In Sigil's Book Browser , add a blank page or file to your new epub.
*Add the required namespace html headers and toc item links etc. manually to this new page in html and rename the file TOC.xhtml.
*In Sigil's Book Browser left click and position the new TOC file where you want it in your epub using drag and drop.
*When you've finished all that and after testing, you can directly upload your new and modified epub(now with a proper toc) directly to KDP.
And you really don't need a template for what you want to do. I'm afraid that there's just no simple, push-button way to accomplish what you require. You just have to get under the hood and do it manually in html. And that's not such a trivial task for sure.
Why not try my free Sigil plugin now available on MobileRead?
What is KKBC? Anyway... I am using Kindle Comic Creator (KCC) because all my input files are PDF files. Each page is one PDF file. I thought KCC was the right choice. I think you are recommending that I use KKBC instead of using KCC. I was wondering if it is possible to create a TOC, using the KCC.
Sorry, I was confused. KKBC is Kindle Kid's Book Creator. But my above advice still applies because KCC also produces a Kindle mobi when you save the package which can also be converted from Kindle mobi to an epub using the KindleImport plugin in Sigil. So, using KCC, you should also be able to add a TOC to the epub version in the same manner as described in my previous post.
