Question about (and possible help with) reuploading books, please

Hello :) I have a very important (to me) question and would appreciate some help. :help: If a book (that's already ON my Kindle paperwhite, via the 'upload to device' option, so it's not on the cloud, and it has notes! ) If I reupload this same file, via email (through Calibre), will the new file have the notes? (Like, if I reupload a same file via 'upload to device', it just replaces the old one and saves all the notes, does it do that too when I send to email as well?) If it doesn't rep...

How to show more metadata in the sidebar?

How to show more metadata in the sidebar (an example screenshot) when a book is selected? Such as publisher, published year, book size, etc. Since when the "grid view" is enabled, I don't know how to view these metadata except by using the "edit metadata" tool.

Calibre fails to open after rebooting Macbook

I rebooted my Macbook today and after restarting, I can't get Calibre to open. I've tried from the Applications folder, from the dock icon, from Terminal, and by using the "open with..." command on a file. I get the splash screen which tells me that it's Loading books, then that it's Initializing user interface, then the splash screen disappears and Calibre...does nothing. It's not in the Activity Monitor and there's no dot beside the dock icon as there would be if the app was running. All othe...

version 4 and 5 databases compatible?

Is there a difference in the databases created/edited by calibre version 4 and 5 ? I'm running 5 on windows, and the most easily accessible version on my linux install is 4.x. If I add books on linux and then edit metadata on windows will things get messed up?

Calibre for movies?

I know Calibre is for books, and I know this is a reader/books forum, but I was wondering if any of you developers have considered creating a version of Calibre for keeping track of movie/tv info? I was re-watching Downton Abby the other day and was wondering when exactly the last time I watched it was, and thought "wouldn't if be nice if I had a program like Calibre that I could look at to tell me when I last watched this show?" I am not taking away Calibre's use for books, which is perfect, ...

Search results only show first result. How can I view successive results?

Hi. I love Calibre, I've been using it for some years now and it is a great tool. So thank you Kovid for creating and maintaining it. :thanks: I'm guessing it is me who doesn't know how to use this function properly but every time I run a search by keyword(s), Calibre only shows me 1 result (it takes me to (I assume) the first result that matches my search criteria. But how can I get a list of all the books that meet my search criteria? Or how can I move to the next result? I have been looking ...

Certain book covers not showing up

I've encountered a strange issue on my Kindle Oasis, not sure if it's related to Calibre. I have 2 sideloaded books that were not purchased from Amazon. I used Calibre to convert them to AZW3, along with a whole bunch of other sideloaded books. However, these 2 specific books aren't "detected" by my Kindle for the purposes of Goodreads and having a cover. While on standby mode, my Kindle just says "Choose something to read and see its cover here". What's strange is that it only seems to affect...

Book cover shows up within Kindle library but not main page – Calibre or Kindle bug?

Hi all – Hoping you could help me with these. I use Calibre to save my books without DRM and then transfer them to my Kindle. I recently got this book, Freakshakes, which has an unusual cover size. I downloaded the AZW3, brought it into Calibre, downloaded metadata, polished the book and then transferred it to my Kindle. I noticed the cover didn't show up on my main page on the Kindle and thought it was the bug where I had to disconnect it and reconnect it to Calibre, but I did that and it's sti...

Calibre not responding

First of all, I really love Calibre. I found an old collection of EBooks and the ease of sorting out, correcting meta, deleting unwanted titles and generally playing librarian really soothes the autistic part of my mind. Since a couple of weeks the program became unresponsive. Please find the steps already taken below. Could you please help me out? I've been at it for days and I don't seem to be making any progress. Calibre really calmed me and I was so happy using it, I would love to fix this...

How to display specific foreign font?

Hi Guys, I'm trying to view a file with two languages, English and Gurmukhi. I've managed to change the English part easy enough but the problem I'm having is that I seem unable to change the font being used for the Gurmukhi. I have tried to edit the book and change the embedded font but it seems to default to the same font. Is there a way I can easily choose the font for the Gurmukhi text. Any help much appreciated. Thanks, Kam

Compress images losslessly

With Calibre 5.15, and now 5.16, the "Compress images losslessly" feature of the E-book editor his not working properly. If I use it to do a lossy compression it appears to work, and reports the new, smaller file size in the file browser, but if I save and close the editor, then later re-open the same file, the image will have gone back to it's original (pre lossy compression) size. I am running Calibre 5.16 on Linux Mint 20.1 “Ulyssa” Cinnamon Edition.

Many books display Author name first regardless of settings

I want my books ordered Last Name first, many are many aren't. I've read every thread I can on the subject & regardless of whether I set it to comma, copy, or ln fn in author sort tweaks it still randomly puts the first name first on many books. Is there any way to fix this? Many respondents in these threads say read this thread it will answer your question. It never does & is usually a lecture on not touching the file system. It particularly like to put it in the wrong order when the author...

When Running Can't tell Calibre from Calibre Portable

I'm hoping someone can help me. I recently started using Calibre Portable,but I still have Calibre64 version on my computer and both are up to date versions. Is there a way to tell which version of Calibre I've got up and running. I point to the same library when running Portable, and have the settings the same for both versions, so I can't tell which version of Calibre I'm running. I've got a bad memory, so I forget which version I started up. Is there a way to tell which Calibre I've got r...

Getting books out of Apple Books

I have a bunch of books that I purchased through places like Humble Bundle and so on that are in ePub that live in Apple Books on my laptop. (I put them there before I was using Calibre as much.) I'm trying to get them into Calibre but Calibre doesn't seem to accept them. I'm able to find and open the folder that contains the books and see the ePub files, but when I drag the file into Calibre, nothing happens. (I'm not able to see the folder when I use Calibre's Add Books). I also don't seem t...
