I have been trying to import .doc files to Mobipocket creator and am losing all format from the original when conversion takes place. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong? David

I don't know why it would make a difference, but I start with RTFs, not DOCs, although they both require Word when converting with Creator.

And there is some formatting that isn't kept - like when I indent the margins on quoted material for example. That's something I've noticed just isn't kept in Mobipocket. But I haven't had any problems with losing my bold or italics.

Hi

What are the format's you are loosing?
Or better, what you intend and what are you getting?

I have found that I get more formatting passing to the Mobipocket file if I export it in word to html - if the file has images, take care to make word put those under a folder when saving or Mobipocket Creator will not see them when importing the html.

Best regards,
