Unwanted blank Lines in MOBI-Conversion

Hi all,

I convert ePub (from Pages) to Mobi (and add a TOC).

In the result there are LOTS of blank lines - so the whole book looks awful in the Kindle-Previewer.

I think it is "lines" because when I look at it in the Calibre-Viewer and mark it, then the inverted field jumps a few lines downwards...) and I already did a few tries with the conversion-options to make it one line or paragraph distances...

What's wrong there?


Cheers,

Ulrich

Have you tried using the "Remove blank lines between paragraphs" option in the Mobi output options?

Yes, I tried the option to put just one line after every paragraph and I tried the paragraph distances.

The file is filled with blank lines... And it looks so in the Calibre-Reader and the Amazon Kindle Previewer...

Cheers,

Ulrich

You need to look at the HTML source and see what the problem is. There may be "break" <br> tags between the paragraphs.

If you use the "Search and Replace" options, it'll let you see the source and find out what's causing the spacing.
