My poetry book has poems, but no chapters. What do I do when converting????
Simply assign Heading Style 1 to the title of your book and the first line of your copyright notice and it will convert.
I did exactly what you said and it still won't convert.
You have to use the mouse to highlight the title and select heading one at the top under styles. Do the same for the word copyright and for any chapter or poem titles. That will fix it.
I'm in Microsoft word. I seen a design icon but I don't see a style icon.
In Word click the Home tab. In the 'Ribbon' bar (as MS call it) across the top you will see many samples of font styles. They are large click-on default options (most of which can be changed) icons. So they are the Styles even if they are not labeled as such. You will see one called Heading 1. Left click to use and right click to edit their properties. But there's no real need to do the latter for an ePub.
Myself and my friend combined know everything there is to know, but he's not here.
