Remove Link Underlines from EPUB Files with Calibre

Some EPUB documents may display links with an annoying underline in the calibre viewer or your e-book reader.

Thankfully this can be solved easily in calibre in a few steps:

  • Select the book where underlines are displayed under links, right click it and select Edit betadata / Edit metadata individually
  • Right click on the EPUB format and selected Edit EPUB
  • Scroll down to the bottom on the File browser view on the left-hand side and select stylesheet.css.
  • Add the following code:
a:link, a:link * {
  color: #000 !important;
  text-decoration: none !important;
}
  • Save the document and the underlines should have disappeared
