Calibre Conundrums

Sometimes the conversion process may not go as smoothly as desired. One of the common reasons is converting to PDF. This is because they are in a fixed size and text template placement format, making it very difficult to determine where one paragraph ends and another starts. Where possible, try to avoid converting out of or into a PDF format. The best formats are those specifically designed for display on e-readers such as MOBI, LIT, AZW, and EPUB, among others.
