Your PDF now looks much more like an eBook. Simply adding a cover can do wonders!
But we still haven't got that table of contents.
By clicking PDF, under 'Formats', you will be taken to your PDF Reader. There you can hunt down your chapters and add bookmarks to each of them.
As all PDF Readers are different, I can't really walk you through it.
On Foxit, the top icon of the left-hand side toolbar opens up the bookmarks list. The second icon allows me to browse the pages. The 'Edit' pull-down menu (accessed from the top toolbar) allows me to add a bookmark.
Your reader may differ slightly.
What you're aiming for is something that looks like that pictured here.
Once saved, it doubles as your table of contents, as it should transfer as such to your eReader.
I'm now going to ask you to do something which might sound a little bizarre. But there is method in my apparent madness.
You're going to convert your PDF eBook into a *waits for the drum roll* PDF eBook!
The reason is all down to that book cover. It's currently saved as a separate file in your Calibre library.
This is fine and dandy, as long as you plan to only read it in that program. But we're aiming to get this PDF onto your eReader. We'll need to therefore combine the files.
- Highlight your eBook on the Calibre library page.
- Select 'Convert Books' from the top toolbar.
- Select 'PDF' from the top right-hand corner pull-down menu.
- Tick 'Use Cover from Source File'.
- Press 'OK'.
It will only take a few seconds to a minute (depending on your computer speed), but you will soon have two options in your format choices - 'PDF' and 'Original PDF'. The one in the library on your hard-drive will be the newer version, with the cover embedded within.
