Received kdp email: multiple lines of space b/w body text


I used Scrivener for Mac to publish my kindle book - love the software, rave about it to everyone. The book has been out for four months, is doing well, lots of happy readers.

Today, I received an email from kdp (Amazon) stating a formatting problem with the book. But I cannot recreate it. On the kindle support forums, others suggest that I use word instead. I can’t imagine going to word after Scrivener.

Any suggestions on how to diagnose and fix the problem? The email below. Thank you!


We’re writing to let you know that at least one of your readers has reported some problems within your book.

There are multiple lines of space between body text paragraphs throughout the book. You’ll need to remove the excessive paragraph spacing.
