How to Use Kindle Create to Convert Word Documents to Kindle eBooks (Video)

Kindle Create

Kindle Create is a new tool that was recently released for Amazon’s Kindle direct publishing platform, along with the Kindle Create Add-in for Microsoft Word.

Kindle Create is a free program designed to help transform a manuscript written in Microsoft Word or PDF format into a nicely-formatted Kindle ebook that’s ready to sell in the Kindle store.

The Kindle Create software can detect chapters and help layout a table of contents.

You can choose different theme templates for common styling elements, and preview how the book will look on a phone, tablet, and Kindle.

Kindle Create also supports enhanced typesetting for advanced layout features.

Amazon KDP uploaded a YouTube video a couple days ago showing how to use Kindle Create with Word files (.doc, .docx).

The software works with PDFs as well but it’s recommend that you use Word files when possible. PDF files get published as Kindle Print Replica books instead of regular Kindle ebooks with adjustable font sizes and such.

Kindle Create is still in beta and is available to downloaded for PC and Mac from the Kindle Create page. Currently it only works with English language books.

  1. I have no problem with the text but the dialogue are messed up. A statement of three words is spread along a whole line. What am I doing wrong? I can see that I am not the only one encountering this problem. What can I do?

  2. As usual, a bunch of freaky-geeks with IQs about the same number as a speed limit sign put together some horror story that makes no sense when you start using it, not to mention all of them can’t write correct English sentences at a grade school level. It never, never occurs to them to create a webpage layout that make sense and is easy to use, let alone write instructions starting with “Step One,” “Step Two,” etc., using logic that everyone can understand. All I can say, it’s good thing Kindle’s wizards of smart aren’t teaching people to fly, because no one would survive the first lesson, let alone ever hope to solo an airplane. I’d call all of them stupid, but that’s a two-syllable word, which is way over their heads, so I’m stuck with hoping they understand what “dumb” means.
