Building Your Text-Heavy eBook with Kindle Create

When you import a book into Kindle Create in the .doc or .docx format, your file is converted to a "reflowable" eBook, which allows the reader to resize text and is available on all Kindle devices and free Kindle reading applications.

Kindle Create automatically detects chapter titles, adds styling to them, and makes it easy to use them to create a Kindle table of contents for your book. You can format paragraphs with styles, change the look and feel with themes, and preview how your eBook will display on tablets, phones, and Kindle E-readers. Kindle Create works with several word processing applications (e.g., Microsoft Word, Apple Pages, and Google Docs) that export to the .doc(x) format.

After installation, you can launch Kindle Create by selecting Windows key > Amazon > Kindle Create (Windows) or Launchpad > Kindle Create (Mac).

Note: If you're not sure whether this is the right format for your book, see Choosing your book type.

Known issues: tables, lists, footnotes, indents, links

Kindle Create has limited support for tables, lists, footnotes, indents, and hyperlinks; they cannot be edited. If your book contains any of these content types, please Preview them before making extensive changes in Kindle Create. You might need to return to your primary authoring tool (e.g., Microsoft Word, Apple Pages, or Google Docs) to make changes and then re-import the document.
