Usually for fiction, the convention is to have indented paragraphs. You should choose one or the other. You can ignore the heuristic processing tab and move straight on to Page Setup. Set input profile to Default Input Profile. Set output profile to Kindle. Now we come to structure detection.
This is where the correct use of headers is important. Assuming you have used the proper levels of heading Calibre will detect the structure automatically and you can leave these settings as is. You can ignore the stuff in the box about Xpath expressions. This is just Calibre telling itself what to look for.
If for any reason you need to adjust these things manually, you can click on the Magic Wand button and a sub-panel will appear. If you need to make manual adjustments to the setup of your menu you can use the drop down to make sure that the HTML tags in your documents produce the correct levels of heading in your table of contents i.

Thanks Sean. Thank you so much Bill. This is great! Is there perhaps a reason, that you show the conversion with calibre, other than it being open source? Hey Tim, Thanks! Scrivener does indeed have an excellent export function, which I have even used. They use Microsoft Word. This leaves me with two choices, the first of which is to import the document back into Scrivener once I have approved the changes. This is actually pretty easy on the Mac version but less so on the Windows version at the moment.
On the Mac, you can divide the document up on import at the Chapter headings, this function is not available on the Windows version. The alternative is to do what I do here and just load the edited document into Calibre.
In this series of posts I am trying to present the cheapest and easiest way to get books out there for the largest number of people. Since not everybody owns Scrivener or wants to use it, I think Calibre is the best alternative. I very strongly suspect that within the next couple of years all word processors will have an export to epub function which will make all of this largely irrelevant but at the moment this is how it is: Fantastic job, Bill!

Once again, Many Thanks for your wise thinking and publishing this article.
May you continue to prosper.
