ePub conversion adds the "Calibre" cover

My novel has a cover, and we would prefer not to have the boilerplate "Calibre" cover stuck on the front of the ePub file (I am converting from html on an older Mac, using Calibre 7.28).

Everything works fine, except for this. We've read through the manuals, etc., and can't find a reference that might help.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Drag the cover you want to use onto the Edit Metadata screen cover area before you do the zip to epub conversion. Calibre will then insert this cover as page 1 of the epub rather than use the default.
