I am happy with that, so I ask the wizard to now help me create S&R2. This is where it seems to go back to the beginning and spend many seconds preparing the PDF for wizard use ( even though it's done it once already in step 1). in task manager I see that pdftohtml is running & using lots of CPU during these seconds.

what I am suggesting is keep the file used for wizard / testing from step 1 so that it does not have to be re-created for step 2 of the setup test - . I am not talking about the actual conversion to epub. does that make sense
I understand what you're asking for now. Unfortunately, the design of the components does not allow for this to be easily achieved. Open a ticket for this enhancement so it doesn't get lost but I can't guarantee when if ever it gets implemented.

Settings are saved on a per book basis when set in a conversion of a specific book. If you set a setting in Preferences it's global. So you could create a few that work across books there and just disable them when necessary on a per book basis. The per book settings will remember you've disabled it for subsequent conversions.

However, it sounds more like you want a global settings scratch pad where you can see all stored settings and probably what book they were stored for... If you have some idea of how it would work open a ticket for it too. Someone might like the idea (or be bored) and implement it.
