Just resubmitted the 2 buggered up book descriptions.

As far as I can see, nothing has changed.

Whatever you do int the WYSIWYG has the formatting removed as soon as you move on.

If you put everything in the Source side of the editor, and then go back to the WYSIWYG, all the formatting is removed again.

Here's hoping by adding to Source, and then clicking straight through to the next submission form, it might actually retain what it is supposed to look like.

This time I tried my original formatting. The partial formatting seemed to work from source last time, so hoping for the full this time.

Just updated a description yesterday. Went through and what I see on the store page is exactly what I see on the KDP dash.

Maybe they've fixed it then.

I'll resubmit mine and see what happens.

I'm not seeing a mess either. In the US and UK stores everything looks as it should be. Old descriptions not so much... Ugh, I don't even want to think about that, but what I am seeing in the dash is exactly what shows up on the store page.

When did you last submit a book?

Some of my books lost the blank line between paragraphs, some of them didn't. I really can't be bothered to mess with it. For the people with lots more books, who are actually making decent income on Amazon, oh lordy what a GDPITA.  :HB

I like the new description box. It's a WYSIWYG instead of having to rely on code to get the formatting perfect, it's easy to fix it in the text editor..

Except it doesn't do what WYG.

It adds in line feeds, so single spaced becomes double, and if there's a blank line, it becomes 3 blank lines.

The editor doesn't actually work.

And have you looked at your previous books? The descriptions have been rendered into a single paragraph now, and if you just upload a change, and submit, you lose all your formatting.

I don't mind a WYSIWYG editor, but this one doesn't work!

After checking, the old descriptions are a mess. They have been have been rendered into a single paragraph. 

After (re)formatting the descriptions correctly, I am not seeing issues line spacing.

Cheers,
R.C.

A single space between paragraphs shows up as a single line break, not a double or triple line break. I remember with the old editor that you had to get two line breaks in to see a space, and this new editor treats a single line break as a new paragraph.

Is that in the editor, or on the product page after it updates?

If in the editor, exit the book, then go back in and see what it does.

Still checking, here in the US (For me?) the update takes a few hours.

Cheers,
