Autosend MOBI file via email to Kindle after conversion

I know calibre can auto-send news via email to the Kindle. I'm trying to find a function that will auto-send email to Kindle after conversion of a file (eg. epub). I'd love to see a function that "automatically send converted books to email" similar to the function in the "Behaviour" panel. Is this possible?

Cover shrinks when converting ePUB to MOBI in Cailbre only when sent to iPAD

It's my first time on the forum - I've read many helpful posts over the last few weeks so thanks to everyone who has contributed. I've now struck a problem creating an eBook that I can't seem to solve and am hoping someone might be able to help. I'm creating an eBook in Calibre for publication and need to produce a MOBI I can upload to KDP. I can't upload the ePUB directly and let KDP convert it as it has a lot of special characters (lots of Spanish words with accents) and the formatting do...

Converted to Kindle format (MOBI or other), won’t show up as “book”

I have searched everywhere for answers, and have only found dates information at best. My ultimate goal here is to get Whispersync for VOICE to work between an Audible audiobook (it has Whispersync, according to their library) and an e-book sideloaded into the kindle app on iOS devices (iPad and iPhone). The best info I can come up with says it won’t work because my sideloading has this far only yielded a ‘document’ in kindle, not an actual ‘book’. I’ve tried removing the [PDOC] tag in the M...

AWZ(3) vs KFX

Hello folks Ive been a Calibre user for years and used EPUB until now. Got myself an Oasis, and thought ill better covert some 5k book to mobi (some are already in movie and epub format). Have read read loads and loads of MOBI vs AWZ vs AWZ3 vs KFX - jee , I am more confused than I was when I started. I want to have the best possible option, not too bothered about size etc. Also thought of getting rid of all the other formats, as I doubt Ill ever use an iPad again to read, after the Oasis ...

Bulk Convert Mobi to Mobi

Hi, I need to convert a large number of mobi files to mobi files (yes, mobi to mobi). It's because the author data on the existing mobi files is picking up "firstname lastname" and I need to reconvert (then it picks up authorsort as lastname, firstname). BUT I can't define the input format in calibre for a bulk conversion - it picks up epubs to convert unless I convert each book individually. Any suggestions?

Add to index/contents list in Mobi?

Is it possible to add to the index in a mobi format book? (or I could convert it to azw3 I guess as it's to be read in a Kindle). There is a long contents list near the start of the book which is clickable, but none of the chapters appear in the 'go to' menu in the Kindle. That just lists other parts of the book like the introduction, main book and appendices. How can I get these chapters into that menu via Calibre?

Metadata plugboard no longer working for series on converted books

I have a metadata plugboard set up to do two things: Add the series title and number to a title. Add a fandom name to fanfic if the custom column "fanfic" has info. It looks like this: {series}{series_index:0>2s| – | – }{title} {#fandom:||: }{title} When I purchase a book from Amazon, I convert it from AZW3 to MOBI, which removes the DRM, then send it to Calibre. The plugboard no longer updates the titles of those files. Files that were not purchased from Amazon update correctly. I don...

Mobi using the "both" option

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, but recently when I do a conversion to mobi using the "both" option, it doesn't actually create "both", it *only* creates mobi format, with no kf8 version embedded as well. I'm running Windows 10, and I made sure that I am at the latest version of Calibre. I'm not sure when this stopped working, but it's been at least a few months since I last converted a book and it worked properly. Any ideas? Shari

find which AZW/AZW3 files have DRM

Hello, I'd like to know which of the 628 AZW books and 1774 AZW3 books I've got that need to be re-imported due to DRM. About half of the files were imported before I had all the plugins so the DRM was never addressed. I just left them as is since then. Is there a way to find just the AZW and AZW3 files that have DRM from the Search bar (preferred) or somewhere else? What I've tried from reading other threads: 1) One post suggested using the Quality Check plugin, but it doesn't handle the ...

Problems converting Ebook

Hello, I used Calibre in the past to convert ebooks into the MOBI format to put it onto my kindle voyage but have not used it in a while.

Adjusting PDf sizes in Calibre

For highlighting and taking notes with PDFs I use Xodo on my Win 10 laptop. I cannot find as good an editor for epub/Mobi files; so I have converted a couple of ebooks to PDF via Calibre to use in Xodo. However the resultant output is not too satisfactory. In Calibre I have adjusted the paper size and base font size several times, but before I drive myself mad, I thought that I'd ask if anyone here has some optimum settings for a 13" screen. I'd be grateful.

PDF>MOBI Random blank pages inserted no matter what I do.

Hello everyone, I have an issue I've been dealing with for hours now and I completely don't know what to do anymore. I have a couple of pdf books (very obscure, scanned, with no other formats available) and I've been trying to convert them into .mobi for a 2016 basic Kindle. I convert because PDFs on Kindle tend to stop working after two dozens of pages or so. When I convert and view it on the Kindle, I am getting random blank pages approximately every 1-3 pages. For example page 25, blank, page...

Moving to Kindle

Hi, Used Kindle for many years alongside Calibre, it is certainly the best when converting books. Recently I noticed that books I had added were not appearing although Calibre said they were on my Kindle Fire. Looked and found them in documents and then through various sources altered my settings so that they would go to books and not Docs. Unfortunately some of them are still going into the docs file and I cannot seem to change this. Any help on this subject would be most helpful to me so if...

ePub won't convert to mobi

I've just received "Japan by Train" published by Japan Experience in ePub format. I can add it to my Calibre library, but trying to convert it to MOBI so I can add it to my Kindle library FAILS at 47%. Using the latest version of Calibre, get no error messages, just a conversion stuck at 47%. The file size is ~ 8.3mb. I've remove it from my library, downloaded it again, and get the same result. There's a .pdf version, and while conversion goes to completion, the result is quite unsatisfactory. ...

Replacing or Adding embedded MOBI cover

I have a MOBI file that does not show a proper cover image, instead it displays some kind of textual made up one, perhaps care of some calibre feature. Anyway, I managed to fix things after doing some research. The chief help was this old topic - Managing cover images in mobi/epub files The solution was not readily apparent to me though, until I tried it. I did not want to use the convert MOBI to MOBI method, as I wanted my source MOBI file to remain unchanged, cover image excepted, and conversi...

Which digital book format has the most growth potential?

The answer might surprise you… Amazon’s Kindle format dominates the ebook market today and it’s easy to assume that will remain the case going forward. Despite that fact, I see a number of trends indicating the digital book space could be ripe for disruption. Notice I use the term “digital book”, not “ebook.” That’s because the digital format with the most upside isn’t MOBI or EPUB. It’s audio. Amazon also dominates the audio book space, of course, thanks to their ownership of both Audible and B...

What Is an AZW File (And How Do I Open One)?

A file with the .azw file extension is a popular file format for storing eBooks for Amazon’s Kindle line of eReaders and devices using the Kindle app. Along with storing things like bookmarks, annotations, and last known page, AZW files usually contain DRM protection, or copyright protection, to prevent copying and illegal viewing.

Problem stripping kindle DRMs

Hi. I have been using Calibre successfully for several years. Like many others, I am now having problems converting kindle ebooks.

Novice User Internet Archive

EPUB to MOBI text issue

Hi All I normally read mobi books on my Kindle Fire with the colour set to black, this gives me a black background and white text. I have found that more and more when I convert from EPUB to MOBI format then I get black and black so both the text and background is black, I have to change it to Septia to be able to read the book. Is there a setting in the conversion I am missing that will allow me to fix this issue? Thanks
