Update html from scource

Hello, does anyone know if one can update from the book scource file?

After making changes to the orginal html, I need to import and change the settings every time - not very productive.

If you are using ePub, you can make the changes directly in the ePub.

The book is pretty large and gets split to over 100 html's in the ePub file. But I will consider doing so, thanks.

The Book Editor should be able cope with such a book, if the html file splits are inappropriate it has merge and split tools you can use. I've been confronted with converted scans of 300+ pages with an html file for each page.

The problem is that once you have your ePub made the way you want, you'd have to do that all over again every time you edited the source HTML. That's why editing the ePub is a much better way to do it.

What are you actually doing? Are you adding the source document to calibre as a new book and then doing a conversion to ePub? And having to update the metadata, cover and configure the conversion each time?

If that is the case, then you can select the book in calibre and drag-and-drop the new version on the details pane. Of, use the metadata editor and update the book using the add button in the top-right corner. Doing this will replace the existing format without losing the metadata or conversion options. If you do a conversion after that, it will use the settings that you last used.

The above assumes that you are doing something like working on a manuscript, exporting as HTML and adding to calibre to generate ebook formats for others to see. Or to try it yourself on an ereader or app. If you are editing the ebook format after the conversion, you will lose any changes.

An alternative is basically what @BetterRed suggested. Create the epub once and then edit it. You can create a stylesheet that displays the book how you want. And split the file as needed and generate a ToC. When you update the HTML, you edit the book again, remove the current HTML files and then import the updated version. Then do any edits needed for the epub. This will let you keep the same stylesheet throughout the writing process.
