I was just going to ask about the metadata, as I just did a trial conversion to Mobi of one of my own books, from htm--using the Calibre GUI. When I changed the metadata in the Calibre library, the change did not show up when I then opened the file in Mobi Reader desktop. Does Calibre only change the metadata in the actual ebook file when sending to a device? (That wouldn't help me with mobi files, which I need to send to my PDA via other means. Much less mobi files that I would put up for other people.)
Is there a way to force the metadata change into the book file? I've been touting Calibre to people as a great way to edit metadata, but now I'm confused.
