Compiling for eBook/Kindle format

Could anyone help please. I’m trying to get ahead of the curve here, and because I don’t want to create extra work for myself.

I’m writing a book that will, at least, be published in a kindle format initially.

It is a pretty standard format, that is chapters with text content. My question is, because the font size can be altered in a kindle book do I write chapters as one long document, or do I work to format it into a normal page layout, does anyone know?

If you haven’t already, I’d recommend taking a look at our Interactive Tutorial, available from the Help menu. As it explains, this isn’t really an either-or question.

By design, Scrivener encourages you not to worry about formatting details while you’re actually writing. The Scrivener editor doesn’t think in terms of pages, and you don’t need to either.

However, the structural divisions in your manuscript – parts, chapters, scenes – are important. You’ll probably want to consider them while you’re writing, and when you do start to worry about formatting those divisions can be used to define chapter headings, section breaks, table of contents entries, and so on.
