I have been playing with the compiler, which works amazingly well, but I can see already that I will be having some major issues with tables and images, depending upon the format. So, I have a few questions.
Situation: Book is essentially done. Want to move it to epub, mobi, pdf for printing, etc.
Problem: Book contains tables and images.
The table editor seems really difficult. Great for dropping in some data, but limited control. Words wrap weirdly, etc. I am assuming if they are not great in Scrivener, things will only get worse when exporting.
Proposed solution: I can remake the tables at any size in Illustrator, and insert them as an image, rather than as a table. I am guessing that will be the best approach. (true or false?)
Assuming placing images is better…
What is the best way to format an image for epub, mobi, etc? Should there be page breaks before and after the image? Drag and drop, or Insert? What is the difference between Insert Image From File and Image Linked To File?
Is there a way to open these epub and mobi files and edit them? (I can open the pdf in InDesign, so no problem there)
What is the best format? (jpeg,png, etc?)
What size for which format?
What is too small in a mobile format?
Thanks for any insight you can offer,
