Options to control the lookand feel of the output
Transliterate unicode characters to an ASCII representation. Use with care because this will replace unicode
characters with ASCII. For instance it will replace "Михаил Горбачёв" with "Mikhail Gorbachiov". Also,
note that in cases where there are multiple representations of a character (characters shared by Chinese and
Japanese for instance) the representation based on the current calibre interface language will be used.
The base font size in pts. All font sizes in the produced book will be rescaled based on this size. By choosing a
larger size you can make the fonts in the output bigger and vice versa. By default, the base font size is chosen
based on the output proﬁle you chose.
Change textjustiﬁcation. Avalue of"left" converts all justiﬁedtext inthe sourceto leftaligned (i.e. unjustiﬁed)
text. A value of "justify" converts all unjustiﬁed text to justiﬁed. A value of "original" (the default) does not
change justiﬁcation in the source ﬁle. Note that only some output formats support justiﬁcation.
Disable all rescaling offont sizes.
Embed every font that is referenced in the input document but not already embedded. This will search your
system for the fonts, and if found, they will be embedded. Embedding will only work if the format you are
converting to supports embedded fonts, such as EPUB, AZW3,DOCX or PDF. Please ensure that you have the
proper license for embedding the fonts used in this document.
Embed the speciﬁed font family into the book. This speciﬁes the "base" font used for the book. If the input
document speciﬁes its own fonts, they may override this base font. You can use the ﬁlter style information
option to remove fonts from the input document. Note that font embedding only works with some output
formats,principally EPUB, AZW3 and DOCX.
By default, calibre will use the shorthand form for various css properties such as margin, padding, border,
etc. This option will cause it to use the full expanded form instead. Note that CSS is always expanded when
