- Adapt Font Size Kindle devices treat traditional static font size with great difference. By checking up this option, Mobi Maker 2 can convert font sizes into relative font size system, so that your book's font size looks similar on various devices. This is checked up by default and strongly recommended.
- Base Font Size
This number decides how many points is for 1em in the above conversion/adaptation.
Default value is 12 (pt). If you want your book's font size looks bigger on Kindle please select smaller value, on the contrary, select larger value.
- Classify Fonts Font sets are different between your PC and target devices.
Fonts on PC and used by your Word document may not exist on Kindles, so reader may not see your
designed font at all.
By checking up this option, Mobi Maker 2 can add font family definition for your fonts, so that on target device the system can assign a similar font to replace your original unavailable font.
This option only work for book imported from Word.

The applied style work for default paragraphs, original styles will be overridden(replaced). But for paragraphs styled with some class, the global style will take effect if there's no definition in the class, or the class style is prior.
Please know that KF8 and traditional Mobi format have complete contrary default settings on paragraphs.
