Hello Quoth,
the reason i was considering uploading a mobi instead of an epub is that I cannot seem to succeed in validating the epub with epubcheck in Sigil. I always get a bunch of errors which with my very limited technical knowledge cannot understand or fix myself. I think a successful conversion to a mobi with kindlegen is a kind of verification and validation.

I use a several pieces of software for formatting ebooks. I use calibre only for some of its plugins (eg. KindleUnpack) and word processors (Atlantis, Libreoffice) only to clean up the initial text.I am also trying to integrate ebook formatting within my workflow for print. I don’t use Indesign, but free or less costly alternatives (Scribus, VivaDesigner).

Regarding the dual mobi, I’ve taken the advice of Hitch on this forum (there is so much to learn from her) and know there still are millions of KF7 devices in use, so I am trying to produce ebooks which do not look too bad on those.
