Moved to correct subforum.

For chapter detection, you'll need to change the chapter detection XPath expression to something fitting your book. See this tutorial for help.

It's worth noting, however, that PDF conversions rarely work well. PDF is not an ebook format, and the resulting file will generally need manual editing to make it readable.

Welcome to Mobileread.

I have two items as a new user that you should know.

1. Most forums (certainly all of calibre's forums) have Sticky posts at the top. These posts are here to help users that might have questions. One sticky post at the top of this forum is "Read this before Posting PDF Questions." Reading this sticky post might shed some light on your problem.

2. There is no need to include hard line returns in your post. The words will automatically line wrap for the viewer. Placing hard returns screws up the layout when folks view your post at different resolutions or font size. If you find the forum posts going too far to the right for your screen go to the bottom of the forum and change it from fixed to liquid.

Good Luck.
