You will find a Theme Settings Metabox on the Writing Screen (above the Publish box) which allows you to override default display and other settings on a per-post (or per-page) basis, giving you more fine-grained control over many of the page elements (without having to resort to other more complex workarounds to achieve the same effect, such as one-column templates, hiding elements with styles and endless page-targeted CSS rules that clutter your stylesheets etc.)

These Metabox override settings take priority over filtered theme settings. (ie. Settings -> Filters -> Overrides) Currently most override options in the metabox are for display (hiding elements) rather than output (removing them.) When set, CSS style rules (with !important) are added to that page to achieve the desired effect.

PerPost Styles Tab

You can add CSS style rules for a post/page through this metabox field. Handy if you need to tweak a specific post or page display, without having all these post-specific rules clogging up your global stylesheet and thus loaded sitewide on every page. These rules are checked for singular pages and output in the <head> section of the page on display automatically. There is also an expand/collapse link for better access to viewing and editing this stylesheet rules textarea. There is also an added Quicksave CSS button for faster changes so you don't have to Update the post just for them to take effect.
