The order of custom columns in the "custom metadata" tab in "edit metadata" window

I have about 8 custom columns, and I can order them in the order I prefer, which is great. However, when in the "edit metadata" window -> "custom metadata" tab, they seem to be ordered in a different arbitrary order. I wonder if there's room for improvements on this. :thumbsup:

Are Conversions Lossless?

Just for discussion's sake; if I converted an epub to azw3 and then back again to epub, do I lose any fidelity of formatting? I originally had my library in epub format but I converted them when I bought a Kindle. Now I'm thinking of switching to a Kobo ereader and will convert my books back to epub.

The most effective method to Fix Equalizer APO not Working on Windows 10

Having unlimited oversight over sound emerging from your PC is something a lot of clients ache for yet they don't appear to be happy with alternatives given by Microsoft.

German epub files using » and « instead of " " for quotations

I have no idea where to begin for fixing this. Example: »Du willst also deinen Plan ausführen?« »Allerdings. Ich habe mich vor Monaten dazu entschlossen und meine Meinung nicht geändert.« It looks like this both on Calibre ebook viewer and Onyx Boox Note 2. I appreciate the help :thanks:

Streamlight TLR-9 Gun Light Review, the YUGE Tactical Light!

The Streamlight TLR-9 makes a great addition to the ATI-imported GSG 1911. IMG Jim Grant U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- When it comes to tactical lights, more is always better. Sure, some companies will tell you that you only need a few hundred lumens for indoor work, but I need to wield the power of the Egyptian- Sun-God, Ra whenever I hit my light's “on” switch. Problem is, the majority of the guns I carry or use for home defense are designed around fitting mid-sized or compact firearms. And as a ...

New option in Preferences

I download a lot of stuff from Gutenberg and various PDF files to a folder. I was wondering if an option could be added to the Preferences > Adding Books to delete a book from the Source folder after it has been added to the Calibre Library. Not essential, but if adding a quantity of books and have to put the job aside to do something else, it would be helpful. Thanks for any consideration. Thanks for a remarkably useful piece of software!

Likebook Mars, Borrowbox and other questions

Anyone using the Borrowbox Android app to read ebooks from their local library on a Likebook Mars? I have plenty of ereaders and probably I'll continue mostly using the Kobo Libra, but I selfishly and extravagantly bought a Mars and sleep cover. I happen to have a spare unused 128 G micro SD card. That should work. Currently I read PDF manuals, scans of ancient textbooks and old magazines on my 10" Lenovo tablet using Xodo, but some might work with the margin crop on the Mars? Will it be like...

Sic Transit Discourse

Oh boy, I made the mistake of using Twitter for something other than telling dumb jokes and got a glimpse into the minds of normies and it was scary. People are absolutely *obsessed* with the idea of a Living Wage. Putting aside the point that the real minimum wage is zero, I was interested to take the pulse of the Living Wage crowd, so I replied to a discussion... "Even grocery baggers?"  "Do you know what grocery baggers do?!?!?"  "Uh, yeah. It was my first W2 job. But the steady rise ...

Brandon Sanderson' YA books.

I have enjoyed Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn , Wax and Wyne and his Stormlight series, but I see he has written others but they are YA books. ( The Reckoners, Skyward etc ) Has anyone read his normal Fantasy books and the YA ones? How do they compare? I do prefer the more involved fantasy books, but nothing wrong with a bit of good light reading as long as they a good.

Where is the best place to plant a Daphne? The most popular cultivars of Daphne grown today, such as Daphne odora 'Aureomarginata', Daphne x transatlantica 'Pink Fragrance' and Daphne bholua 'Jacqueline Postill', are all known for their glorious fragrance. And it's because of their scented superiority that they are often planted near front and back doors. That way, those-in-the-know can profit the most from their heady, early-spring perfumes.However, being near a door doesn't really c...

Essenes in Judaean Society: the sectarians of the Dead Sea Scrolls

The sectarians reflected in the Dead Sea Scrolls, identified with the Essenes, were not the isolated community of popular imagination that spent their days praying, studying scriptures, and waiting for one or two messiahs in the desert. Some of them did do so, especially those who lived at a site near the Dead Sea known as Khirbet (‘ruins of’) Qumran, but most of them did not. Four thousand of them lived in towns, villages, and large groups throughout Judaea. They were in Jerusalem, where a gate...
