Your English was perfectly understandable
I think there is still a gap in the plugin for this scenario. It has been brought up before but the route I have taken only addresses the situation of where you subsequently do an epub->epub conversion adding a jacket again, and now end up with two jackets.
The problem with those older epub jackets as I understand it is that it has a file something like "jacket.xhtml" but it does not have the meta tags identifying it as generated by Calibre, which were added in a later release. Can you PM me a link to a file it would greatly help as I am only guessing?
I don't really want to just "assume" that anything ending in jacket.xhtml is a Calibre jacket, as presumably there could be commercial epubs that happen to use a file by that name or whatever. Perhaps there is something specific to the content of that jacket.xhtml file I could scan for as an additional check.
So right now the answer is no, Quality Check will not detect such files. Your only option currently is to do an epub->epub conversion on them all specifying to create a jacket, then run the new check for "multiple jackets". And then join the queue waiting for me to write the "remove" jackets functionality
EDIT: I should requalify all of the above. This is an uneducated GUESS as to what is happening. The one example epub that dwanthny kindly sent me with a jacket1.xhtml file in it DOES have the meta tags. So it is detected by the recent versions of this plugin. I really need an example of an epub that is NOT detected by the latest version of this plugin, and then we go from there...
