I've been trying FOREVER (like two hours) to transfer a PDF to a MOBI using Calibre, but each time I get serious formatting issues when I try to open the file with my Kindle app. When I view it through Calibre it looks just fine. 

 

What am I doing wrong?

Do you still have the doc version? That's how I typically do it; I've never tried to go from PDF to mobi.

That worked! All the advice on the internet lied to me. I kept finding "PDF to Mobi" instructions and none of them worked. I can't believe I didn't think of using the docx version sooner.
