How To Edit .MOBI Format Documents
Editing a .Mobi file is a lot more work than editing other files. You cannot just do an edit on the Mobi file.
There are 3 steps to this process:
- Unpack the Mobi file
- Apply the edits to the files
- Repack the Mobi file
For this you will need software and a knowledge of HTML etc.
In the following few articles I will attempt to give you the various options and steps that will make it a lot simpler than it at first seems to be.
If the Mobi file is a DRM Mobi file then you cannot edit it. You will need to recreate it from scratch.
Step 1 – Unpacking The Mobi File
Option 1 – Using Calibre
