These have been replaced by the Search and Replace panel in conversion. If you want to delete text just specify a search and leave the replace box empty.

Question pdf headers and footers

I'm realy a novice in Calibre, just beginning with two first book convertions.
I try convert PDF books to Mobi. The only problem produced is that the footer and page numbers are embedded with last line of each page in the Mobi format. I did not try or even understand in replys above, how to remove that footers. Any help?
I see that if convert from PDF to RTF of course I can Manuly eliminate these footers but it is troublesome.

You'll have to use the search & replace feature in the conversion settings, there's a brief tutorial available. The search and replace uses regular expressions to describe the text to replace, if you're not comfortable using those, there's a tutorial available on them as well, which I'd suggest you start with if needed.

I've read the tutorial as well as this thread and I've found the information very useful. I just can't find how to extend my selection. for example we have

file://something0%01something0%0 (page 23 of 9000) [April 99, 1903]

I just want to match file://something0%0 and extend my match to the end of line. Or I could match of 9000) and extend to the previous end of line.

Is there a simple way to do that ?

edit: let me clarify ... I mean how to I match to the end of line in a PDF when there are no end of line tags.

I use file://.+br> when it's an html document.

Try something a little more specific like for example
Code:
file://something0%01something0%0\s+\(page\s+\d+\s+of\s+9000\)\s+\[April\s+99,\s+1903\]

This should work too:
Code:
file://.*?\]
Although pdf does have end of line tags, and file:// is already built into pdf as an internal pattern, though admittedly I just checked the code and it seems like two slashes isn't as common as three or four slashes - I've just tweaked the number to look for.

tricky regex

hello,

line spacing is off at conversion, so I would like to remove
<br>\n
(read blank, bracket, newline)
but only if in front of the blank is not a dot, otherwise it should remain.
The RegEx identifying the corrcet places is
[a-z] <br>\n
but now, obviously, one letter too much is replaced. Can I get back this character through a variable to be put into the Replacement Text line?
Otherwise, how can I tell Calibre to replace only once the is no dot in front of the matching RegEx?
Thanks for your help,
miquele

also tried removing <a> i.e the html link but it didnt work either. delphi was always my preference to python

my problem is this repeating code
<p class="calibre3"><b class="calibre1">Generated by ABC Amber LIT Conv<a href="http://www.processtext.com/abclit.html" class="calibre2">erter, http://www.processtext.com/abclit.html</a></b></p>

thanx so much
Your regex worked perfectly for me! Thanks so much for posting it. I'm so glad I searched fervently before I started trying to make my own.

Footerlike block of text

Hello everyone!
I'm downloading webpages with the Mozilla Print Pages 2 PDF add on and I'd like to remove the parts after the main body text (usually related posts, links, ads) with Calibre when converting to mobi, that are of course different at every post and every category. There is only one pattern that occurs in every single page I noticed, that starts with "Inshare(1-9)" and ends with the word "Albumclose " like here:

Last paragraph of text <br>
inShare2<br>
Related post1 <br>
Related ad1 <br>
Related post2<br>
Related post3<br>
Related ad2 <br>
Albumclose <br>
Is there any chance I can delete this whole block of text with Calibre's Search & Replace feature at every post automatically or is that impossible? I looked at this part of the manual but it didn't really work. Any help is appreciated
