As part of its ongoing push to bring ebooks to Kindle, Amazon has added a new feature to its ebook reader for Windows, called Kindle Creator.
Kindle Creator allows you to quickly edit and export ebook books, including your own, in the cloud.
This new feature, available in Windows 10 and the upcoming Creators Update, comes with a few caveats.
First, it only works with Kindle books created in the Creators update.
So, for example, if you’re editing a book for a Kindle book reader, you can’t just download it and save it as a Kindle ebook.
The Kindle Creator software has a better integration with Microsoft’s Creative Cloud, so the editing experience is better than ever before.
Second, Amazon’s Kindle Creator only works on Windows 10 PCs, so you’ll need to download the software from Microsoft’s download page and run it from there.
Third, you’ll only be able to edit and save Kindle books from the Amazon app on Windows, so it’s a little confusing for some users.
The only other way to edit or export a Kindle eBook is through Amazon’s own Kindle app, so that means you can still use the free Kindle ebook editor to quickly and easily edit and send your own Kindle books.
