You can set the CSS on a per-book basis. Right click on a book, select “Convert individually”, go to “Look & Feel”, and fill in the CSS. It will affect that specific book only, and will save it for future conversions (definitely for future individual conversions; not sure about bulk). I absolutely have different CSS changes for different books, and it works great.

Yes, I know you can do this . The point I was making is that, until I open the book in the editor, I don't actually know what changes I need to make, and then I am in the editor anyway, so I may as well make the changes there. I use AZW3 as my "master" format, so I'm not concerned about losing editing changes on conversion. Whatever method works for you, though, is what's important.

I think Colerson was saying you can look at the style via Inspect in the book viewer, so you don't have to open it in the editor.

I agree though that it's easier and faster to use the editor directly. At least I always do it that way.

Can anyone explain how to do this "best of both worlds" method? It sounds like a way to have the benefits of azw3 and the benefit of mobi (cloud syncing of notes).

My favorite method is to take an epub, change the extension to .txt or .png, then use Send-to-Kindle app or email to send it to the cloud. Amazon will convert it into an azw3 for you with WhisperSync functionality.

Example: bookname.epub > bookname.txt or bookname.png
