Remove all mobi versions of a book where there is a corresponding epub?

I'm trying to tidy up my Calibre library and am moving to a new Kobo device. I have many books with a range of formats —*ideally I'd like to remove many of the redundant formats where there is an existing epub for that book? Is this something I can achieve in Calibre?

Auto-merge added books if they already exist (works?)

I am looking at some options in the add book category and I don't see the result. Select what you select adds a new record. Could someone explain how it works or test whether it works for them. Attached Thumbnails

Is there a way to run ebook editor from command line?

Palmetto State Armory AK-V: Best 9mm AK? (Video Review)

U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Palmetto State Armory has long been known for making affordable firearms. I once heard a podcast with one of the owners saying that they do everything they can to keep the cost down on their products so that anybody who wants to practice their second amendment rights is able to do so. He also went on to say that the more guns he can get into law-abiding citizens' hands, the harder it would be for the government to ever take our second amendment rights away. I really f...

Copied and pasted   ended up with & #160;

(I left that space in & #160; intentionally otherwise MR turned it into *) For my asterisk spacing I use: *     *      * So I copied that and pasted it into a new book. But after implementing "Mend and prettify all HTML files" I got this: (actually several & #160#; things and my three asterisks) ************* I know they're the same thing but Sigil never changed the   before.

Sorting of books by author with "(ed.)" in the name

I have a couple of books that when sorted by author sort to the top of the list. Always wondered why and just looked into it. I see that they're collections with "(ed.)" appended to the author name. For example: title: 100 Great Science Fiction Short Short Stories author: Isaac Asimov (ed.) author sort: Asimov, Isaac I'm surprised they're not sorted as dictated by the sort string. Instead, the Kobo software appears to see that "(ed.)" in the name of the author and pushes the books to the to...

copyrighted public domain books

Master Gardener: Fertilizing geraniums, yay or nay?

Q: A master gardener friend of mine just told me not to fertilize my geraniums and just water when the soil surface is dry.  Would you agree with her? A: Well, it depends on whether you’d like your geranium to be six or more feet across and four feet tall. Most geraniums are quite easy to grow and don’t require more than consistent watering. They may look innocent enough when you buy them in a little pot, but once they’re in the ground and receiving plenty of sunshine and water, they will grow a...
