change meta data without convertion

can you change meta data without converting the book? i edited the metadata of a book but it seem i have to convert it before the change take affect on my ipad, but i am worry that convertion may damaging some of the formating on the original, so it is possible to change meta data without conversion?

thanks

"Save to disk" will update the metadata. "Polish books" also only works with epub or azw3.

Nope. There really isn't any other alternative.
