Smashwords uses Meatgrinder to generate EPUB file formats from the Word format manuscripts submitted by authors / publishers. Converting a file using Meatgrinder may cause undesirable flow of the text, that is, the originality of text appearances could not be retained when the eBooks are viewed in varied eReader devices. Therefore, publishers may use the ‘Smashwords Direct’ option to upload their manuscript in EPUB format itself. Here is where eBook Enhancers is helpful in providing authors with an EPUB file of their Word format manuscripts, which is done MANUALLY without using any automated formats like Meatgrinder, so as to have the text appear properly aligned, retaining originality and look similar in any eReader devices as well as computers.

What is the difficulty in formatting a word file for upload in Smashwords?
Smashwords could accept manuscript only in .doc file and not any other formats. However, there are a number of restrictions in providing a manuscript in the format required by Smashwords for publishing. One needs to follow those restrictions listed in the ‘Style Guide’ provided by Smashwords. Yet, the publisher might experience dissatisfaction with the flow of text in eReader devices or apps, as the automated process involved by Smashwords for conversion could not retain originality of the contents, especially the figures, tables and graphs.
