If you want to create e-books for the Amazon Kindle, you need to install a utility program called 'kindlegen' from Amazon's web site. This page tells you how to do this.
Your web browser will download the Zip file. The file will have a name
that looks something like
KindleGen_Mac_i386_v2.5.zip. It is
possible that your browser may automatically open the Zip file into a folder
for you: it depends on the browser.
If your browser has not already opened the Zip file, double-click the Zip file so that it opens into a folder that looks something like this:
The installation is now complete, and Universalis will be able to create e-books for the Kindle.
If you can't see "Application Support Folder" in your Universalis menu then you must have an old version of the Universalis program. Download and install the latest version and try again.
Why the extra step for Mountain Lion? If you are using Mac OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion) or above then you are probably using Gatekeeper, which limits the use of programs downloaded from the Internet. You have just downloaded a program from the Internet, and so you need to authorise it before Universalis can use it to create Kindle e-books. If you do not do this, all attempts to create Kindle e-books with fail.
