Ralob,

I am having trouble getting my e books to convert exactly how they appear in the original pdf file format. Any suggestions? Any tools out there to help me convert pdf/Word files to MOBI/e pub format? I publish mainly books in 6" x 9" and 5.5" x 8.5", 12 font, Times New Roman. One issue that is problematic is on special pages, like the title, and table of contents pages, that have various special characters, spacing etc.

Will appreciate any help or suggestions.

For Doc conversions save the Doc as html (filtered) then add to calibre and convert. For batch Doc conversions check out this thread. For PDF conversions read this sticky post.
