Adding a line spacing before and after an image or chart.

For my Kindle file (.mobi), I used Insert -> Text Wrapping Break in my original MS Word 2003 file. This added an extra line space. Then I saved it as filtered HTM in MS Word, and finally .mobi using Kindlegen.

 

However, the .ePub file is ignoring this formatting. What can I use in it's place to create a line space?

Use page break, it separates pages. You can save as .doc and that works on both Pubit and Kindle. I have pictures. I used page break, center, insert picture, page break, left justify.

I don't want to use a page break. I want to add a line of spacing  before and after certain sections of my book. Anyone out there with a method?

I found one solution. You can use a MS Word Style that has paragraph spacing before, such as 12pt. That will create a line space before the paragraph. Thus, you create a custom style, such as P1-Line Space Before.

Good to know. Smashwords says to put a carriage return before and after the page break. I just did page break.
