What is a Fixed Layout Format?

The standard eBook format features flowable text that fits the screen of any device. This means your book will look different on different devices as the text reflows and adapts to the user’s reading environment.

Fixed Layout Format, on the other hand, is one where the text, images, and other elements like margins, line spacing, etc, will stay static regardless of the device used.

Fixed layout eBook utilizes pixel-specific page size to match the Layout of a printed book precisely. Every element, such as text, images, and tables, are placed in exact positions and dimensions, thus ensuring consistency across devices and matching the experience to a printed book.

Fixed-layout KF8 for Amazon Kindle

Amazon offers fixed-layout support through its KF8 format, although this format does not have many features as its counterpart, ePUB 3. Fixed-layout KF8 files work on most Amazon Kindle devices, including the Kindle Fire tablet range, Kindle Paperwhite, and most Kindle apps.

As some kindle devices have small screens and cannot display the full content at a time, the KF8 format is most effective. It also provides a feature called region magnification for devices that do not support touch screen zooming; hence it allows one to double tap and zoom a particular area of content for an easy read.
