Mobi file not working at all

  1. 4 years ago

    I am trying out Pubcoder for faster book prep and have completed two versions of a book. The Epub3 file works great in iBook but the mobi has issues.
    The hyperlinks in the mobi do not work when I view the book on my Kindle app for Mac. The link looks active but will not do anything and the buttons have blue lines under them and are also inactive.
    When I push the Mobi to my iPad Kindle app the book pages are out of bounds and the images are missing.

    I am using 1280x800, portrait mode. Any ideas why this standard setting is not working?

    My primary platform is Kindle so this is very disappointing.

  2. Hi,
    I've done a book for kindle and iPad: my links work except the effects I wanted to give to my links; kindle keeps them with a underline.
    Did you try the [url=http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?docId=1000765261]kindle previewer instead of the kindle app ?
    Also what you can do is to add in the css style a { text-decoration: (your value) !important} it can help ...
    Hope it helps,
    Penelope

  3. Thank you for your response Penelope.
    I grabbed the new beta Preview3 and it crunched the mobi that Pubcoder created and made a new one. Prior to that I was unable to get Preview to open at all.
    Once Preview processed the file it worked like a champ! The display properties of the hyperlinks are still not quite right but they all work!
    Wish there was a way to export a high quality PDF from pubcoder (with hyperlinks), I'd be a happy camper for sure.
