Hi there.

 

I'm trying to publish my first book in iBookstore.

 

I've sent it twice and I keep on receiving the same answer:

 

The book must contain proper formatting. Paragraph indents or line breaks after paragraphs are required.

The book content must not overlap or lack proper spacing.

 

As I'm not a native English speaker, I don't understand what this mean. Translated it, but when I test my book, everything's fine.

 

Can anyone explain (with examples, if possible) what does this mean?

 

Thanks!


iBook, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Using your question as an example above, compare to this version below

    Which one of those examples is similar to the text in your book?

    Could you perhaps use the camera icon here to post a screenshot of one of your book pages with lots of text?  That might help others provide advice on things that need changing.

    I don't see obvious problems in your photos.  Does it look the same after you Export it to .ibooks format and view it on your iPad?

    Looks exactly the same. I exported to .ibooks and tried it in my iPad... Just the same.

     

    Here are the same parts of the book taken directly from the book in iBooks:

    I simply don't know what else I should do... :/

    I don't understand why you are getting those rejection messages -- everything looks normal.   Perhaps try the phone support
