There is no way of generating a preview document of an ebook.
I used the conversion process provided by Lulu but that generates a epub fil as a single document. How do we then generate a preview? Previously we'd generate a PDf. When you click on Create a Preview button it asks you to download from your own files.
Is it the case you download the whole epub document again and it will only read the first ten pages? PDF most likely wouldn't read on an iPad...etc
Clarification would be useful.

No this is not a useful reply Nick.
What file does one use for this ebook preview There is nothig in the wizard that creates a preview from the epub conversion file. So does one upload a word file (or PDF of first chapter as in a previous print version) If so how does an e reader read that?

Nick, went through the whole Revision process again. Tried to upload a simple word file as preview as it suggests you do (just ten pages) and it failed. Says contact support.
So is this a MAc v Pc thing? (I use a MAc)
Everything else has uploaded but this preview is clearly a wizard issue of magnitude

Ok. So it doesn't like word filesfor previews but it accepted a PDF.
So I have a preview. But is this right for e-readers?
Ok I'll keep quiet now and go back to actually writing something.
