So over at DearAuthor, they waxed poetically about Mobipocket. About how easy it was, how much smaller the files were....
So I decided to try it tonight. And really....I rather like it.
I do confess the reason I was leery about trying something new was more that I'd gotten in a rut and well...I knew what I had worked. And it does, rather well. Mobipocket just might work a bit better. But I still won't admit that Adobe is the devil (except with the DRM'd books). It really does work perfectly well on my device. This is more for html and docs and rtfs.
But....I've got a problem.
It'll convert my pdfs and my htmls, but won't touch my .doc files or my .rtf ones. I keep getting this pop-up:
Please install Microsoft Word to complete this conversion.
Then another pop-up: The file format is not supported.
Now...I HAVE Word. In fact, I have Office 2003. Help.
So huh? One thing about Mobipocket seems to be the rather annoying support forum that seems fairly useless.
