What I usually do is delete the existing cover in Metadata, add the cover I want and convert the book to epub again. In the "Epub Output"-Options I choose "No default cover". Up until 0.8.65 the file that came out after the convertion looked as I wanted it, with the cover streched out over the whole page. I know the covers look somewhat strechted like that but I still prefer that to smaller covers with white spaces around them. Now with 0.8.65 the new covers don't stretch anymore. They have white spaces around them.
Was that changed on purpose or is it a bug? I'm back at Version 0.8.63 right now and with that version the covers change like I want them to after I convert the epub.
You are going about this all wrong. To change the cover, you do not want to convert the ePub > ePub. That has the potential for making a right mess. Don't do it that way.
Go into the metadata editor and drag the new cover on top of the old cover and click OK. The use the Modify ePub plugin
to replace the existing cover with the new cover and you will have your new cover without going ePub > ePub.
