Why do not enable hyphenation for AZW3 format in Kindle firmware for all languages? Not all book can be converted in kfx also in supported languages. Strange kind of decision by Amazon.

That that everything KFX can do can be done with KF8, there's no reason for KFX. Amazon just has to write the KF8 renderer to do it.

Is there any way to use this plugin with a headless/command-line invoked installation of Calibre?

One other question: it appears this plugin can only hyphenate EPUB or AZW3, not MOBI. But Kindle does not accept either format via email as best I can tell. Is there any way to use this plugin and then send the result to Kindle by email? Or am I stuck with copying the file to a locally connected device?

1) hyphenate epub
2) convert epub to to "dual" /"combo" mobi format (change "Mobi file type" option from "old" to "both", in Mobi output tab)
3) email (or use Send to Kindle app) that mobi file
4) your Kindle should download an azw3 "part" of that dual mobi file you've send, and it will have soft hyphens.


If for some reason Amazon sends old mobi format when you use Calibre to generate "dual mobi" then try using kindlegen (or Kindle Previewer, it also uses kindlegen) for that epub> mobi step (kindlegen by default produces "dual"/"combo"/"master" mobi file).

You'd be best to hyphenate the KF8 format eBook and using Calibre to load onto your Kindle via USB.

Thanks for the tips above re hyphenation. Sounds like there is no way to work this into a headless / script-based workflow, i.e. based on invoking ebook-convert command-line?

I'm aware of the Python "hyphenate" script and the suggestion posted here https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=274246 , but the script hasn't been updated for recent Python releases and even after making a few fixes to get it to execute, I'm still not able to get satisfactory results. The Hyphenate This plugin works great but doesn't appear to be scriptable. Is there any relatively simple solution to that?
