Problems using Scrivener formated mobi?

I wrote my first book last winter using Word. I converted to ePub using Sigil (it had 55 images and Sigil really worked for inserting images), and final conversion to .mobi using Calibre -and then uploaded to Amazon. "Been there done that."

I'm writing book #2 using Scrivener and was excited to see that I could export from Scrivener as a mobi. The book is about 1/3 done and all mobi exports look great on my Kindle.

Has anyone had a problem with a mobi file created with Scrivener and uploaded to Amazon?

Thanks,

Tony Latham

It finally dawned on me that Scrivener uses KindleGen to convert to a mobi... so I have to assume the created Kindle-book is fine.

I must throw out there that Scrivener is a great book writing tool.

I'm interested in Scrivner as well. But it doesn't appear to permit inline images in the body of the document. My work is also heavily illustrated. Am I wrong about images in the draft section of Scrivner?

Wray:

I'm using Scrivener for Mac version, I think the Windows version is in Beta (dunno for sure).

I just slid two jpegs into my current manuscript in Scrivener -that I know were properly sized (from my published Kindle book)... compiled the draft (in Scrivener) as a mobi and sent it to my Kindle via it's Kindle email address. The images are fine on the Kindle (and no problems with the active TOC).

As I think I already mentioned, it's a great writing tool.

Got it!

So it's drag n drop!

I was trying to import file, and it wouldn't let me select an image.

Thanks.
