Epub to Kindle?

Starting from InDesign, I've produced three .AZW3 (K8) files: (1) by using the ID Export for Kindle plug-in, (2) by exporting to .epub and then opening in Kindle Previewer (i.e. using Kindlegen) and (3) by converting with Calibre. Each is different, and none is perfect. In (1), the Kindle-required toc looks awful, there are some mysterious formatting issues (paragraphs indented where they shouldn't be, &c), and Arial is not embedded. In (2) there is no toc, but also no formatting issues and Arial is embedded. In (3) There is no thumbnail of the cover in the Library (whereas there are thumbnails for (1) and (2)), but no formatting issues, Arial is embedded and the Kindle-required toc looks good, though it appears between two cover pages. I'd like to tweak (3) so as to produce the thumbnail and remove one of the cover pages, but I'm not sure how to do this. Can anyone help?
