Also, there’s something screwy going on with the size of chapter titles when using the table of contents navigation and some front matter sections suddenly have indentation, despite not being indented in the document I uploaded.
I have some ideas for how to fix these things. Though some of the problems show up differently whether I’m previewing the book on the Kindle App (on my phone/tablet) or on my actual Kindle. And also differently on the Kindle previewer app that is supposed to show how the e-book will look. (?)
Some things, like the book opening in the middle of the table of contents, seem to be known issues and the official answer is to go ahead and publish the book then see if it comes out properly once the book is actually on sale.
That doesn’t make much sense to me and I’d like to have the issue resolved before the book is actually public. However, I may have to accept the fact that conversion glitches may happen despite my best efforts and that it’s not the end of the world if I have to fix some formatting problems after the book is already on sale. (Anyone who buys it will automatically get an updated copy if corrections need to be made.)
It just bothers me to have put so much effort into writing a book only to have it look unprofessional due to formatting quirks that are beyond my control. (Sigh)
