Recently downloaded a book that is presented in kindle for windows 10 in a very strange way. The book does not open in pages. The book is not divided into pages but goes in an endless strip from the beginning to the very end. There are page separators , but they look like horizontal stripes with page numbers, but the application does not divide the content by these stripes. When changing the font size, the entire page layout changes. Tables look extremely strange. The question is - can I choose a viewing format so that the book looks like a normal book with page division rather than a kind of webpage?
that looks like a table of contents which might scroll. My guess is probably not as that looks like it's formatted that way in the first place, but I've never seen a book where Kindle for PC just scrolls and doesn't page forward.
this is another screen from that book, it has a part of page 25, full pages 26, 27 and part of 27th.
The book does not scroll you are right but it does not separates pages ether. It looks and behaves like a web page. If I will "turn the page" I will have the rest of page 27th, 28,29 and the half of 30.. and this is extremely inconvenient.
Also there are no "go to ... page" option on the menu. I can't go to page 121 for instance.
that's actually normal and has to do with your screen settings, font size, etc. The only Kindle books that actually break at the same place as paper books do are Print Replica books and those are usually textbooks and are basically an image per page of the paperbook where you can't resize the font. You could try :
1. Contact the publisher and tell them the book would work better as a Print Replica book, but they might not do that as it would mean that no one with a Kindle could read the book
2. Write a product review stating that the book would be more useful if it was a Print Replica book or a pdf
3. try adjusting the font size or margin size so less fits on the same page
Amazon cannot "fix" the book so it will break on the same page as the paper version, unfortunately. Formatting is up to the publisher and most books are formatted to contain continuous text even when spanning one or more pages
