I tried it direct from Scrivener's compile to HTML, tossed it into Mobipocket and read it on the Kindle in about five minutes.

Really nice. Page breaks as requested at the chapters. Like it. :wink:

Good to hear! We'll get you a proper Kindle .mobi formatter soon, too.

Huh. I may have to try that. After my NaNoWriMo draft was done, I copied the chapters into Sigil, then saved as .epub and loaded to my Sony Reader. But, I didn't think about .mobi! Argh. Will have to try that next time!

I tried that, saving to html, forcing chapter breaks - which the compile duly ignored.... Only to a PDF file can I get the compile to work as requested. All others ignore the custom requests ....
