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:

As the ship continues to spring new leaks...

...the new leaks keep getting funnier. You know, if I'm counting on you to protect me from assassins, not only can you use my loo, you can come hang out with me while I'm on the throne, too. Don't worry, there's a magazine rack if the conversation gets dull. https://t.co/nKbfscMWWH— Tamara K. (@TamSlick) January 15, 2021 [Author: Tam]

KV How to diagnose brick?

How do I make inline footnotes?

I have a book where the narrative framing involves extensive use of footnotes. Since this is a fanfic downloaded with FanFicFare, it's not an actual footnote (not even anchor links), just a section at the end with numbers. I would like to turn these proper inline footnotes, preferably one that my Kobo can handle. But I'm not sure how to actually go about this. Does anyone have a tutorial or something to help? While I posted this in the Calibre editor, I'm not opposed to use other tools. :thanks:

CONVERSION - Request for function

I often change the covers on books when I am editing the metadata. Changes to covers don't change the book until you exit from editing and run the CONVERT BOOKS function. Would it be possible to put a CONVERT or UPDATE button on the EDIT page so it could be a choice during editing? Thank you, jp91306

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...
