Book cover from file

The option to get the book cover from the file is a great feature, but can it be made available from the regular get metadata screen. It is currently only available from the Download metadata in bulk, so if you're editing the metadata and can't find a cover online you have to go to a separate screen to get it from the file.

An interesting option would be to allow you to specify the page # to retreive the cover from from books that don't have the cover in the front (possibly because of introductory or identifying text).

Get from file is a Edit Metadata function also.
select a format (to be the source of the cover), click the book icon to the left.
The blue i below that will copy the metadata from the book. Note this does not honor the preferences set for 'Download Metadata'. It will overwrite any value with the found metadata.
