Calibre

New Features

  • Tweak Book: Allow tweaking of KF8 MOBI files. Useful to fine-tune the result of a conversion. Right click on the book and select Tweak Book to use the feature. Note that tweaking a MOBI file that contains both KF8 and older MOBI6 will cause the MOBI6 version to be discarded.

  • Conversion: Allow easy re-ordering of the search and replace expressions in the conversion dialog. Also apply the expressions in the same order that they were entered when doing the conversion.
  • Automatically add the Tag ‘Sample Book’ when an Amazon sample is added to calibre
  • FB2 Input: Better handling of inline images.
