Can't email books to Kindle with Gmail

I got a Fire HD 10 (7th gen) and I tried to email books to Kindle from my gmail as always but I'm getting the error below. I don't know if the problem existed before I got the new Kindle or not 'cos I hadn't emailed books in awhile.

How to stop Calibre from searching comments?

Under preferences > searching > columns that non prefixed searches are limited to, I've narrowed it to just: title, author. However, if I type a given word into the search bar e.g. "eclipse", in addition to getting books whose title or auther contains "eclipse", I also receive all books whose comments contain "eclipse". Unfortunately, this makes searching not that useful for me. How can I make non prefixed searches ignore text in the comments? Thanks

E-Books Sent via Email won't open

I converted the EPUB books to MOBI then I sent it via gmail. It was sent successfully but when I click on the book, it flashes 'queued' then it doesn't open. How can I fix this? Also, I get an error when I transfer via USB. calibre, version 3.39.1 ERROR: Error: Error communicating with device [Error 3] The system cannot find the path specified: 'D:\\documents\\Wright, Tristina' Traceback (most recent call last): File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 87, in run File "site-...

default viewer program: calibre doesn't adhere to xdg-mime settings

Hi, I have the following issue: When double-clicking on a file (this case: PDF), Calibre doesn't respect the desktop-wide "open with" filetype associations: PDF files are supposed to be opened with "okular" on my system, but are instead opened with "calibre" again which then tries to re-import them. The "View specific format (Alt+V)" dialogue is also only partially functional: While "View -> View specific format -> Open PDF with -> Okular" opens the correct program Okular, even a "View -> Vi...

Can't Send books on Calibre do to "Mailbox Unavailable" error message.

Hi I'm brand new here and was wondering if I could get some help? I just recently got calibre to start emailing my kindle some books. Everything started off fine for about 5 books or so and then I started getting error messages that said "Mailbox Unavailable." I am using gmx so I thought it was spam so I disabled all spam filters to no avail. This is the portion of the error message when things start to go awry It looks like it starts with the 550 line: reply: retcode (250); Msg: Requested ...

Cannot send anylinger ebooks to my Kindle via Calibre

Hello! I reinstalled Windows 10 and installed the latest Calibre 3.39.1 version again. I added my Kindle email into the settings, but somehow I cannot send books now via email to my Kindle Paperwhite 3. There is no error message. The Gmail address that I added to Calibre passes the test. What happened? Thank you!

PDF Files; Metadata & File Names; Adding Physical Book Info

Hello All: I'm new to calibre, but have been playing around with it all day (about 8 hrs now). I've catalogued a half dozen PDF books as "proof of concept", and to figure out how the "nuts and bolts" of the program work. I'm really impressed to this point! A genuine "Thank You" to those who develop "open source" programs like Calibre! I do have a few questions that I can't find answers to within the Forum (and I really did look). I apologize ahead of time if I'm mis-posting or duplicating. I'...

Editing metadata

I am a little embarrassed to ask this. I often find something from another program or the internet that I want to copy/paste to the comments field in the metadata editor. Here I can edit many things like bold, italic underscore, adjustment and so on. But I cannot change the size of the text without going to the html source tab. I often paste the new text to a program like notepad in order to get rid of the html code. Am I missing something obvious?

Archive of Our Own (AO3) to start using Calibre for EPUB/MOBI/AZW3 downloads

I just came across this announcement: https://archiveofourown.org/admin_posts/12212 I tried their sample EPUB and it now contains series, comments and tags. Whoohoo! Their old engine only had title, author and publisher, and the MOBI output didn't even have proper TOC nor chapter breaks. As someone who often downloads directly from AO3 to reader and rarely accesses desktop Calibre GUI (ergo FanFicFare), this is a very welcome development. :drinks:

[Solved] Calibre disappeared off my PC

Has this ever happened to anyone? I did not uninstall it or anything. It is just gone. I did reactivate my system mechanic yesterday but I noticed its gone from my PC as well.

Calibre reverted to freshly installed default

Don't know what happened, but I was working on my library when my computer unexpectedly powered off (didn't know it wasn't charging). When I restarted it my Calibre library had reverted to the original default gui settings. Plus it started on a library that has never been attached to Calibre. I have a synced library in my Dropbox that isn't attached, but synced using outside tools so that I can use it on Calibre Collections. It probably is synced to Calibre because I copy the db file from th...

Incorrect Title Sort

I have a series that is improperly title sorting. 1 is showing above 10, 2 above 20, and so on. How do I get it to sort the number properly. An example of what I am talking about.

Duplicat book folders

Good day I am fairly new to Calibre and don't use it very often but here goes. My wife has a large Calibre file and today noticed that most the books in it are there twice and in the same format IE mobi or epob. If I look in a folder for an author there are two folders for each book and both contain the same folders with the same name but the number on the end is different. If I open them they contain the exact same files. The Calibre folder is 19.7 GB and contains over 21.000 folders and 5...

modify epub - not returning to my place in book list

not sure if this is a bug, a feature??? or some side effect of other settings if i display a list of books e.g. i list those where read=n, then i process one item by using modify epub... when I accept the modify epub changes I am not then returned to that book in the list. I am returned to top of list? or somewhere else in list? but whatever- with a long list the book I just modified is often nowhere to be seen as it's now off screen NB this is an old-ish 3rd party plugin, not Kovid's polish ...

Auto populate custom columns on import.

Usually when I import a file to calibre (as opposed to via plugin, like fanficfare) it's something I haven't read, and is a completed work. This I mark with a no in my #read column, and a yes in the #status column. Is there a way to tell calibre these should be the default? Will it futz up Fanficfare's use of those columns? Should I get the corned beef or pastrami? Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

Clearing the Recent Searches Dropdown Menu in Calibre's E-book Viewer

I'm using the E-Book Viewer software that comes with Calibre (osx) in order to search the isbn tags of my epub files, and I really liked having "isbn" be the only result I got from the dropdown menu of my recent searches because I could just click the menu and quickly click "isbn" from there. Anyway, I accidentally added another word to the searches, so now when I click the dropdown menu, it shows "isbn" and "(other search)" instead of just "isbn". Is there any way to clear the recent searches...

Series and numeric_collation

When numeric_collation is disable, series with numbers are group as expected. Enabled, I get strange groupings: 1, 2, 20, 3, 71-327 (inclusive), 4400, etc. The tweak descriptions mentions problems when titles (series?) start with numbers. Any way group all numbers together?

Transfer only part of library to different computer

I have searched through the forums and cannot find my exact question. I needed to send my laptop (where my current Calibre library is located) in for repair. While it was gone, I used my old laptop to manage my ebooks and Nook. I have my repaired laptop back and I only want to transfer the books that I added for a few weeks in January to my current laptop. The instructions to transfer the entire library to a new laptop is easy to find and this is what I did when i first got my new laptop. The ...

Norton Alert: Not a Valid Digital Signature

I've been using Calibre for years and I always update Calibre to keep it current. This morning I added some new books and when updating metadata, I got this message from Norton indicating Calibre doesn't have a valid digital signature. Why am I getting this message and is it okay to click OK? Thanks. Attached Thumbnails

I have a slight problem when sending books to my device, Kindle Paperwhite 4 (2018). I use a USB plugged into the kindle to transfer the books over. The problem is that some of the books show as books whilst the majority show up as Docs. How can I get them all to show as books in the KPW? Thank you

Unknown Book Title

I just added a book to Calibre with a title of UNKNOWN (by Phil Price). When I click on the book to display details on the right pane, the title does not display. I assume Calibre is interpreting the title of UNKNOWN to mean I don't know the title of the book. How can I get Calibre to recognize the title and display it properly? Thank you.

ISO Dates

So it wasn't 'just me' :eek: Within a week of installing calibre almost 6 years ago I spotted the ISO option for formatting datetime columns. That'll do me I said to myself. But, when I tried to edit dates I ran up against the problems recently reported here :blink: I decided it had to be what I was doing. At that time I was struggling with the metadata edit screen and that darn calendar widget. So I used the same workaround as the launchpad error reporter. But this post by chaley raises ...
