Best settings for 1:1 ePub to AZW3 conversion?

What's the best Calibre settings to make sure the ePub I convert to AZW3 stays as close to a 1:1 copy as possible?

Thanks

My guess would be that if you went to Preferences - Common Options and clicked Restore defaults that you would be at the setup that manipulates the conversion the least.

Disable font size rescaling under Look & Feel, that is the main one. Other minor ones, under Structure Detection, set insert page breaks before to / and disable remove fake margins.

Thanks. So "Disable font size rescaling" should be checked, yes?

And what about "Disable compression of file contents"?

Thanks.

What about going the other way? Best settings for an AZW3 to ePub conversion?

Don't. Use the KindleUnpack plugin.

Thanks, I'll take a look. Does it handle the conversion better?

Yes, because it doesn't change anything. As I understand it the plugin simply repackages the internal KF8 html files in a ePub wrapper.

Sometimes cleanup is required afterwards. This can be done in Sigil.

I've never had an AZW3 > ePub via KindleUnpack that did not need some fixing so it would be ePub compliant. Use epubcheck 3.0.1 to check what needs to be fixed.
