Yes, the Kindle Previewer only allows conversion of books whose primary language, as set in the book's metadata, is within a set of about forty supported languages. Polish is not one of them.

The next release of the plugin will change the language code "pl" to "en" within a copy of the book prior to conversion. I will remove this handling if Amazon adds support for Polish in the Kindle Previewer sometime in the future.

I based my comment on a quick look at the plugin code, but I don't use Sigil myself. I stand corrected.

Version 1.55.0 - 25 Aug 2021

Detect Kindle Previewer versions up to 3.57. Version 3.57 adds support for text-shadow in books with vertical text and improves conversion of SVG images.

Remove links to non-existent targets in the NAV TOC that would otherwise cause conversion failures.

Allow conversion of Polish language books by changing their metadata to indicate that the primary language is English. (Polish is not a supported language for the Kindle Previewer.)

Amazon has released Kindle Previewer version 3.57.1. It is compatible with the current release of this plugin.

Would installing Kindle Previewer over Wine work with calibre? I have an old Mac that doesn't support neither the latest KP, nor the latest calibre.

I suspect that if your Mac is too old to run recent versions of the Kindle Previewer for MacOS that it also won't be able to run the Windows version under Wine. Both require a 64-bit system.

This plugin supports the Kindle Previewer being installed under Wine in a Linux environment. It doesn't support Wine under MacOS. The Installation section in first post in this thread give some information about software combinations that were tested and shown to work.

Your best hope is find an old version of the Kindle Previewer that can run on your Mac. The oldest version supported by this plugin is 3.38. Amazon does not make older releases available so you will need to look elsewhere for that.

I use the kfx plugin to convert epub to kfx format but it seems that the kfx format remove all the link I use in epub for footnote. Is it a bug or is there anything to note when create footnote links? Thanks

The Kindle Previewer will convert properly formed footnotes into pop-up notes, but it should not be removing them entirely. The proper way to code footnotes for Kindle can be found in the Kindle Publishing Guidelines.

I can look into why it is not working if you provide an EPUB file containing an example of the problem. (Do not upload anything under copyright.)

I use exactly the same code provided in the guidelines (method 1). If I use Kindle Previewer itself to export the epub file into mobi file then footnotes worked well. Sorry I can't upload the file here so maybe I'll wait for the new plugin version Thank you for your prompt reply

Hello. It's my first time to be here. I am experiencing an error like this with the two books that I am trying to convert from ePub to KFX:

Code:
calibre, version 5.27.0
ERROR: KFX conversion failed: Cannot convert The Goldfinch: A Novel
KFX creation error: Unexpected Ion symbols used: $790
The same error happens in the books The Picture of Dorian Gray and The Goldinch.

I hope someone could help me with this.
I am using an Amazon Kindle Oasis.

Error $790 is because of kfx ouput plugin not compatible with Kindle Previewer newer version. Jhowell is going to update this plugin in few days....So for time being catch some series on Netflix.

Version 1.56.0 - 20 Sep 2021

Detect Kindle Previewer versions up to 3.58.0. Version 3.58.0 adds support for additonal list-style-type values (reflow-style-14) and fixes a problem that prevented conversion of some Japanese language books.

Support new KFX feature. (Fixes "Unexpected Ion symbols used: $790".)

Thank you for letting me know about this! Everything worked now! I am happy with it. Thank you for the update Jhowell.

However, I encountered another error and if I use AZW3 format, I do not receive this error message:

Code:
calibre, version 5.27.0
ERROR: KFX conversion failed: Cannot convert Uncommon Ground: Living Faithfully in a World of Difference Conversion error: E24010: Hyperlink not resolved in toc (One possible reason can be that the link points to a tag with style display:none):/private/var/folders/tf/96s5p4254pz7j3v2ygg7c5hc0000gn/T/1997feaf-7e3c-441f-963a-51f42466cd0d/cTemp/mTemp/mobi-MmIRXk/OEBPS/text/9781400221073_Titlepage.xhtml#
I do not know which steps I should do in order to fix this error

That is an issue that I am working to resolve. In the mean time you should be able to work around the problem by selecting the option "Use cover from source file" in the Metadata tab of the conversion dialog.
