Empty lines on eBook compile


I’m trying to compile both a .mobi and a .epub version of a recent collaborative effort, but my attempts to compile to .mobi strip out formatting details (alignments in particular) but more importantly it ignores all the empty lines (thus obliterating things like scene changes).

Any advice on what I’m doing wrong?



It’s a bug, I’m afraid…ebook compile is a bit behind the others. I’m poking at it trying to find a workaround for you (other than letting one of the Mac-using participants do the final compile for the project) and I’ll let you know if I come up with anything, but at the moment I haven’t found anything. It really just does not like empty lines anywhere.

Well, you could use # in the documents for the empty lines, but that’s not as classy.
