Producing new boldness slider in Mobi books

Converting from Mobi to AZW3 in Calibre does not create a book that will have the boldness slider. However, if you convert from Mobi to epub and then to AZW3, the boldness slider will appear in the resulting book. Just be sure when you're doing the last conversion, that epub is selected in the drop-down input menu in the conversion window.

And if you're buying a book from someone other than Amazon and an epub version is available, buy that and save a step.

Unfortunately, the above directions don't work; Calibre doesn't perform the way I thought it would.

After converting from Mobi to epub, you have to open the Edit Metadata window and delete all of the versions of the book that have been created except for the epub version. Click OK and then open the conversion window and convert to AZW3. That'll provide the boldness slider.

Sorry for the confusion.
