Thank you very much kovidgoyal, you did a really good job on this software, it helps me a lot!!

BTW, There is a checkbox in the preferences of "Saving books to disk" which says "cover non-English characters to English equivalents".

If I uncheck the option, I'd be able to save a book to my PC/Kindle in the original Chinese filename. But the file will not state as "On Device" when I plug my kindle into my PC.

So, I'm wondering is it possible to add a same feature to "Sending books to devices", or mark the file which I save to Kindle as "On Device" manually?
