conversion problem

I'm Sridhar working as a freelancer.

1) I started one of my Kindle book project with InDesign source file and converted into epub.
2) After conversion I formatted the book using Calibre 3.40.1 (64bit) and converted into mobi file.
3) I checked this mobi file in "Kindle previewer" and got the error "Enhanced Typesetting error".
4) I tried multiple times from epub to mobi and vice versa and checked this in "Kindle previewer" but getting same error.
5) I want this mobi file need to publish in KDP site without error.


Some errors I'm getting while in conversion:
  • calibre, version 3.40.1
  • ERROR: KFX conversion failed: <p><b>Cannot convert Get Pregnant Naturally</b><br><br><b>Conversion error:</b> Kindle Previewer error: Error:E00104: Unsupported tag or style was found. Tag: (), HTML Attribute: (), CSS Style: (-webkit-transform=translate(1.629%%, -1.258%%) rotate(0deg) skew(0deg) scale(0.967, 1.025)).</p>
  • calibre, version 3.40.1
  • ERROR: KFX conversion failed: <p><b>Cannot convert Get Pregnant Naturally</b><br><br><b>Conversion error:</b> Kindle Previewer error: INFO: Error in source to YJ conversion.

  • calibre, version 3.40.1
  • ERROR: KFX conversion failed: <p><b>Cannot convert Get Pregnant Naturally</b><br><br><b>Conversion error:</b> Kindle Previewer error: Error(prcgen):E24011: TOC section scope is not included in the parent chapter:Contents</p>
  • calibre, version 3.40.1
  • ERROR: Failed to open book: Failed to open book, it has obfuscated fonts, but the obfuscation key is missing from the OPF. Do an EPUB to EPUB conversion before trying to edit this book.


I enclosed the ePub file link and please provide resolution to my issue. I'm keep on getting this error since 2 weeks.

If you solve this me to and I thankful to you.

Thanks & Regards,
Sridhar

In Calibre Editor, click Run check and have Calibre Editor fix all errors. Also check your book with EPUBCheck and fix ALL errors.

Do not use Calibre to convert epubs to mobi files intended for KDP. Use Kindle Previewer/KindleGen instead.

Fix/regenerate the NCX and HTML TOCs.

If you're working as a freelancer, and being paid for the work, you should already know how to fix it. If you don't, you have no business charging people to make MOBI files.

Thanks Doitsu for quick reply.

The epub file size is arount 90MB with 30 quality images.

1) Sometimes there no errors showing after checking "check book" option. But after this step, getting errors while publishing in KDP site or checking in Kindle Previewer.
Ex.a) "Book Conversion Failed" error while uploading ePub file in Kindle Previewer Desktop Version.
Ex.b) "HTML formatting error" showing after uploading into KDP site.

I usually work using Word files for formatting and conversion into ePub and mobi files. I recently updated my skills to design books using InDesign. Thatswhy I'm keep getting on getting these problems.

Check book isn't thorough enough. Only EPUBCheck will detect errors that cause the KFX conversion to fail.

You'll need to create an epub file that passes EPUBCheck.

This problem is not related to InDesign. It's about MOBI format, and how it engages--or doesn't--Enhanced Typesetting. This would happen no matter the source. You have mistakes in your source ePUB. Fix those, and the ET will resolve itself, ASSUMING that you don't have long tables or some other small glitchy things in the book.

I'm not trying to be Cruella DeVille--but if you are charging people to make ebooks, you should KNOW that you ought not be using ePUBs that won't pass ePUBcheck to build MOBIs. That's the point I am making. I feel very strongly about this, because almost every day of the damn week, I see an ebook made by some Fiverr (or other freelancer) somewhere, who didn't know what s/he was doing, that someone's paid for. It's not right. I'm not disrespecting Freelancers, by any means--I started out as one--but you should have a thorough command of the work you are doing, BEFORE you charge people money to do it. That, or you tell the person that you do not know, and give them a big discount, so that they understand that you are learning on THEIR dime.
