add two pdf instances for one book

Hi, my question here is there any way i can add two pdfs for one book in calibre? I need one for PC and one for kindle.
Conversion is not a plausible option. The book is a graphic novel. The outputs I've got sofar are quite unreadable

@deva1984 - This is what I do for that sort of situation, I prefer having all versions of the same 'book' together
  • Add the book using the best for kindle PDF, get the title and author as you want them
  • Rename the best for PC version as <whatever>.pdfpc, associate pdfpc with your desktop/laptop PDF reader, add this file to the book created above via Add Books->Add files to selected book records
There may be calibre functions you can't perform on the pdfpc file such as send to device and convert, but that doesn't seem like it will a problem for you

Suggest you try it out on a test library to see what it feels like

That is a smart workaround indeed. I've tried it yesterday and it worked perfectly. Thank you BR.
