FM doesn't actually have page breaks, as a mark-up/structure distinct from the adjacent paragraphs.
When you perform a Special > Page Break operation, what it actually does is modify the current paragraph's Pagination properties, as a local override. Writers who eschew overrides never use S>PB in FM.
So the question I'd have is, is the mobi workflow discarding overrides? If so, the solution is to use a specific paragraph format that has deliberate Top of Page pagination. This is what's recommended for this same problem in InDesign, but I really have no idea if it works in FM for ebook workflows.
You can do that using pagination in conversion settings. http://help.adobe.com/en_US/framemaker/using/WS2d2a17056e2191985844af1a142be0be50b-7ffc.ht ml
In publish pod (File -> Publish)
1. Go to Edit settings by clicking on settings button
2. Go to conversion setting
3. Select the FM Para tag (where you want to have page break)
4. Check pagination
5. Click on Save & close and publish
You can also do the Special > Page Break operation as local override as mentioned by Error7103
Please let us know if it is not working for you.
Just as a follow up to this, I fixed the problem by slicing and dicing my
FrontMatter file for print, which had the title, half title, copyright,
dedication, and a few other items into four discrete files and publishing
out to mobi. Uploaded the .mobi to Kindle, and it went through without
errors and looked fine. Kindle version is browsable at the link below.
