The dreaded underlined blue TOC

I created an ePub with InDesign (and "export to Kindle" plug-in) on an iMac. The results are fine, except for the underlined blue text in the TOC. Would like to use the black-type and lineless style created in InDesign. Is this possible?

Blue and underline is the (traditional) reader default for Links

You could supply an Extra CSS to override

a, href {text-decoration: none; color: black;}

Thanks, theducks. But in what document do I add this line? The InDesign mobi export? Or in the Calibre EPUB document?

Calibre EPUB conversion Extra CSS section
or edit the CSS file and put it at the END so it overrides any previous CSS selectors

You could get a monochrome reader and not have to worry about the blue part

Thanks once again. Almost there, but in case you haven't guessed, this is all new to me. So . . .

Where do I find this Calibre EPUB conversion Extra CSS section or the CSS file for my EPUB document? In the Calibre Library folder? (I'm on an iMac.) If I can open the CSS file, the fix should be easy.

In case you're still having trouble, it's in Calibre's EPUB conversion output options; look for the extra CSS tab under the look and feel section.

Grazie

Thanks to both of you (for the code and where to find this option). It worked.
