There's not way I would like to read that. It looks lik an off-centered newspaper article.

But as for hyphens, if that's KF8, you can use the Hyphenate This! plugin for Calibre to add hyphens of you can use the KFX Output plugin to convert to KFX and have hyphens.

But often it looks like this(see attachment) when hyphens are needed..gets rather annoying sometimes...takes me out of my reading reverie.

Yes, you're viewing a book that doesn't have ET and is on a PPW. That's all. Those are rivers, and that's the way that it works. If you really can't digest it, either get the book in paper, where, with any luck, someone who gives a damn will have justified it properly with judicious hyphenation, OR, crack the book, use the hyphenating plugin-thingy in Calibre, remake the book, and put it on your PPW.

Those are your choices.

The plugin you are trying to mention is Hyphenate This!. There is also the KFX conversion plugin to convert to KFX for the enhanced typesetting (standard stuff with RMSDK (ePub)).

Yup, right, that one. I don't use it, obviously, as we're making commercial books. I don't retrofit my own reading materials; I do this crap all week long. I'm damned if I'm going to be so anal that I'll put in HOURS refitting someone else's-built book, so that I can spend what little time I have free then trying to read it.

By the time I put the time in, all my "free" time would be shot for that week, and I couldn't even look at it until the next. If I'm very, very lucky, I get Sunday off, after starting at 5:30 in the morning and leaving my office around 6-6:30 at night, 6/days/week. I would not, ever, redo someone else's book. If it's that damned bad, I'll tell Amazon. Bugger if I'll spend my own time doing it. I don't see rivers, any longer, when reading on a Kindle. I just don't. It's self-defense, so I don't turn into a loon and start redoing books.

This book is originally an ePub.

Is there anything I can add to ePub CSS to force hypenation when I convert to Mobi? I use online converters generally.

Or, anyway to add the enhanced typesetting?

You have to look in the CSS and see what is interfering with it. Most likely there is a hyphens: none; applied to a <p>.

I think that there's something you can do in Calibre, but someone else will have to speak to it. I don't know enough about Calibre's plugins to be useful, sorry.

Check the CSS for any line that has the word hyphen. Delete it. Use the KFX Output plugin to convert the ePub to KFX and if the ePub works with the current version of Kindle Previewer, you'll have a KFX with hyphens.

I find if you can fix some of the glaring goofs in an ePub rather quickly. I put in my own body and p styles. I then remove all unused CSS. I fix any font sizes in the body text and then fix the large spacing such as the chapter titles. That takes almost no time to do so.
