Kindle (Mac): 2. Creation

With the Universalis program open, open the "File" menu and select the "Create e-book" option:

A window will appear, asking you what e-book format you want: choose Kindle. On successive pages, it will ask you what dates you want to cover in your e-book, and what pages you want for each day.

Finally, Universalis will create the e-book you have asked for. How long the creation takes depends on the size of the e-book. If you are doing a whole year at once, the e-book file could take 15 minutes to create.

If the e-book takes an extremely long time to convert into Kindle format (up to an hour and a half), you must be using an old version of Amazon's Kindlegen utility. In that case, you should download a newer version and put it where Universalis can find it: instructions are here.

When the e-book is ready, this is what you will see:
