Hi! I am willing to test Scrivener. I usually write my books in Word.
Issues: when I convert the .docx files into pdf and these later into .epub, the lay-out is messed up: chapters start on the right page, blank pages appear from nothing, etc… My books need to have a fixed lay-out (not reflowable) because of the illustrations that are inserted into the text.
- When importing my .docx books into Scrivener, do I need to redo all the lay-out? One of the books has 800 pages, that is why I am worried to have to rework it all.
- The conversion from Scrivener file into .epub works seamlessly and keeps exactly the lay-out I fixed inside Scrivener? Or there are reported lay-out issues when converting?
- I use OneDrive for Business to sync all my files and be able to retrieve/read/edit them in my Windows 10 desktop, notebook and Android 8.0 smartphone. Will Scrivener files sync seamlessly with OneDrive?
Point 2 is really important for me, as ideally I want to click to convert info .epub to publish it in Amazon.com and have no worries about the text lay-out being destroyed.
Your advice is welcome!
