Please help me find what's wrong with my manuscript. I hate it when I by a book for my kindle and alI can do is use the page back and forward. I much prefer books where I can skip ahead to other chapters or the reverse. I think these are called chapter markers?

Obviously there is something missing from my word document (2010) and I'm clueless to what it is.

You need an NCX file. Do a search for the term.

Note the NCX is nice for kindles equiped with the five-way (Belly button or joystick) Controller.

the Touch screens that they seem to be hell bent on inflicting all purchasers use "sliders" instead (And are about worthless for navigation.
