Don't keep converted files?

Is there any way to tell Calibre to delete the converted version once it has been sent to a device? I've got lots of .epub files. When I send to a Kindle, they get automatically converted - that's fine, and they look great. But I don't want to keep the converted ones. I just want to keep the originals. I've checked the help file and the settings, but I'm not seeing anything that looks like it will do what I want. (I only want to keep the originals for disk space reasons - and so that I can ta...

MOBI > PDF font size

Is there a way to increase font size in the output PDF? I see an option "--pdf-default-font-size" but no additional parameters shown. Thanks in advance. Calibre 3.39.1/Win 10 or Linux

Four Steps Toward Christian Perfection

Each year, I begin a new daily devotional. This year it is Cultivating Virtue (TAN). For the January 3rd reflection, I read about the four degrees of Christian perfection. As a self-described recovering perfectionist, I usually wince when I read the word “perfect.” It’s primarily because I’ve come to accept and even embrace my imperfections as the source of my constant dependence on God, so acquiring true Christian perfection required some pondering on my part. I recall the words of Jesus as rec...

spacing problem in Kindle AZW3 converted from rtf file

Please forgive this newby question, which I'm sure has been discussed before. My goal is to transfer my manuscript of quotes for distribution via Kindle. I first formatted the text and created a pdf that can be used for viewing on the computer. Following suggestions read on this forum, I then used CALIBRE to convert the rft manuscript to AZW3. The problem is line spacing . Attached you can see: a. sample from the pdf, with proper line spacing b. sample from the reformatted rtf, still...

Automation ?

I frequently modify and/or change book covers in Calibre. When I do, I then re-do the conversions so the new/changed covers will be in the database and in the book itself. I ALWAYS convert to threel formats. (EPUB, MOBI, AZW3) Is there anyway I can create a "single operation" ...a macro...or do the conversion to each of the several formats; instead of doing three separate passes. Thank you, jp

ePub > mobi both - Settings

Hi, My computer died and I had to install everything on a new one. I have an issue though, I don't find a way to convert my ebooks to mobi in order to have a dual mobi I can send to Amazon cloud. I remember vaguely I found years ago some settings that were allowing me to do the conversion correctly. I've tried to do some conversion, removing the PDOC prefix and choosing the mobi dual, but when I send it to my Cloud, my Kindle seems to get only an old mobi (with cover) Can someone help me wi...

Conversion problem EPUB to MOBI

I have started to get strange results when I convert. The new file appears to be readable and transfers to my Kindle Paperwhite OK but I get an error when I try to copy it to another Caliber library. This not only has started to occur with new conversions but also applies to prior conversions that copied OK at the time of the original conversion. My error message for one book is: calibre, version 3.39.0 ERROR: Failed to copy books: Could not copy any books, click "Show Details" for more inf...

PDF to docx to mobi

I have a PDF I'm trying to get on my Kindle, but I'm having trouble. Tried converting the PDF direct to mobi. All the text disappeared completely. here's a folder where they're stored, if anyone is in the least bit interested:!Aho5vLHcET0Borw2QS9emUUYRWXcvw So had the bright idea of saving the pdf as a docx (within Acrobat). That worked. Then dropped the docx into Calibre, and converted to mobi. It stripped out all the spaces. if anyone wants to have a look, here's the f...

Paragraph breaks being eaten in Markdown to EPUB conversion

I've got a collection of books in Markdown format, which is a good choice for them, there being little need for formatting in these books: chapter heads, maybe a little boldface and italic markup, maybe a horizontal rule to break up a second...that's enough. However, I'd also like to have EPUB versions of these because that adds a few features I want such as remembering the last-read position, binding the author name into the book, etc. The problem is that I end up with a wall-of-text no matte...

Saving a Conversion Profile?

Is it possible to create and save a 'Conversion' profile in Calibre that stores your settings? If there is one I can't seem to find it.

CSS Rules

I know this is an old thread, but I'm trying to find the setting for where I can disable the "merge identical CSS rules" function during conversion. I want to keep the same CSS titles that I set up and not have conversion merge them with other CSS titles. Also, is there any setting where I can disable the changing of font sizes (during conversion) in the CSS rules that I've set up? The setting for "Disable Font Size Rescaling" messes up things worse, so I can't use that. Thank you for any hel...

Search and Replace not being done

I went so far as to copy and use the very first line in the pdf to replace it with some obvious text, but even that didn't work. I am aware of the way to write these, I wanted to remove the page numbers, "1 | 200" so \d+ \| \d+ was used, and replace was left blank. I have tested multiple formats and opened each one to verify nothing changed, it is really getting on my nerves. Am I missing a "run replace then convert" sort of step? I'm almost certain it should do it while converting it. While I'm...

What is the latest Kindle for PC version that works with Calibre?

I am currently using an old, (very), version of Kindle for PC because I had problems with the later releases. The version I am using is 1.15.00 (43061) Does anybody know if it is OK to use the latest version? The problem I had before is that the later versions seemed to hide the book very well so that I couldn't find it to import into Calibre.

Difficulty with conversion of (some) HTML

Hello, all... I am using code that does syntax coloring of code and dumps it as HTML. Images here: - screenshot of generated HTML - screenshot of HTML rendered in Chrome - screenshot of epub shown in iBooks [The images wouldn't insert properly for some reason, so I just left bare URLs here.] Note that the epub switches typefaces back and forth (and worse, it switches size back and forth). Any idea what's going on? Thanks, Hal Fulton

Questions about Calibre not reading/converting DJVU, CBR, CHM, RAR files

I've been looking for a book reader that can handle all or almost all the book formats that I have including epub, doc, docx, pdf, DJVU, CBR, CHM, RAR files. From the documentation I've read, Calibre is supposed to be able to handle these files. Calibre works fine with epub, doc, docx, pdf files but not with the others. First, I tried opening the DJVU, CBR, CHM, RAR files and Calibre said the format was not supported and then took me to an online description of the files. Then I tried conver...

Line-height from ePub to AW3

Working in ePub, I have text that is split by tag, where the tage has a css style that adjusts the height of the break. Code: Line 1Line 2 css: .brheight {   line-height: 2.5em;   } This displays without issue in ePub, but when I convert to AZW3, the line height is re-set to 1em. To be clear, the new stylesheet still retains the same css styling (2.5em), but for some reason, the display doesn't reflect the code. Any ideas as to what's happening in the conversion process that causes...

Command line conversion not including metadata in cover generation

Hi, I'm trying to convert files via a batch file, which works fine with just the filename using this syntax: ebook-convert "filename.html" "filename.epub" What I'd like is to add the publisher name to the front cover. In the GUI, I've set the sub-title template to {publisher}, and unchecked the 'get metadata from file only' option. When I generate covers from the GUI, it works. But when I run it from the CLI or batch the metadata isn't added to the cover. The syntax I'm using is: ebook-conver...

Convert Mathjax to AZW3

Hi. First of all, I want to thank Mr. Goyal for his great software and the help he provides in this forum. I'm having trouble converting an HTML that includes some Mathjax equations (like the example on into AZW3 for Kindle. The Calibre viewer displays everything well, but I noticed that the AZW3 file still loads the Mathjax library, wich cannot be used in a Kindle. Is there a way to make the conversion using SVG images for displaying the...

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...

DRM removal plugin doesn't work

It was working perfectly and then my hard drive crashed and burned. Sadly, my image backup of the drive was corrupted and I had to reinstall Windows and all my programs. :angry: I reinstalled Calibre and then downloaded the Apprentice Alf DeDRM tool. It shows that it was successfully installed in the plugin page, but when I try to convert a book, I get a pop-up that the book is DRM protected. I have some library books that will expire soon and be lost unless I can get this working. Help gra...

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?

EPUB to EPUB conversion settings

Hi everyone, I’m a very basic Calibre user, I only need it to sort my ePub library and perform some corrections or modifications on my book's covers and metadata, which I eventually transfer to my Kobo device. I also save the final ePub files to my hard drive, and since I like them to have their covers fixed to their original dimensions and the modified metadata embedded, I usually perform an ePub to ePub conversion process just for that. I don’t really tweak with the books I download, I alwa...
