Kindle Chapter Marks missing!

Hey everyone!


I have a question concerning the kindle chapter marks. When I create a mobi from an epub using calibre and then upload it to my kindle it always shows those nice little chapter marks in the progress bar on the bottom of the screen.

However, when I create a mobi on my own using mobipocket creator these marks are missing! The table of content works fine, but the chapter marks will not show.

Any ideas why and how I can fix this???


Best regards,
Chris

In order to get the joystick navigation (chapter tick marks) to work, the source that MobiPocket Creator uses to build the prc/mobi needs to contain an NCX file. Unfortunately, MPC doesn't create an NCX file automatically. You'll have to edit the OPF manually and create the NCX file manually (before you build) if you want to see "chapter marks" in an MPC built prc/mobi on the Kindle.
