There is nowhere any kind of image comparison logic. cover:false will give you books that don't have a cover. As I said above there is no search or plugin that will tell you which books have a calibre generated cover.

FWIW, I use a custom column to track cover status, that way I can search by the custom column to determine which books I need to look for DL versions, which have covers I like, and which I need to make covers for.

Sure, but if I've deleted cover.jpg doesn't that trigger "No cover" or is it "No cover tucked away inside the ePub"?

On another note, but triggered by me playing with this plugin - I used Quality check to check for weird covers - it found some with multiples - I edited them with Sigil just deleting the Jacket files. I then redid Calibre's ePub to ePub conversion..... and the Jacket files reappeared??? It was like I had ticked the "Insert metadata" option - but I hadn't :-(

Any suggestions or should I repost as a Calibre problem??

You can use the Cover browser to help 'spot' the Calibre 'default' covers. Not perfect, but it might help home in.
If you have a Widescreen monitor, you might increase the Preference: Look and Feel: Cover Browser: value (I run it with 15 and Separate Window Ticked)

If you've deleted cover.jpg you have done the same kind of damage that deleting a book format from your library folder does. It puts calibre's database "out of sync" with the physical folders. Thats why there are the big warning all over the place about not digging around in or touching anything inside calibre's library folder. Run Library maintenance to repair the damage.

*Nothing* looks at the cover image inside the book formats. QC cover checks are all based around whatever cover.jpg is associated with books in your library, and that can and often will differ from any cover embedded inside the ebook formats itself unless you do conversions or use Modify ePub.

Your other comment is nothing to do with this plugin. If you want to remove jackets safely, use Modify ePub.

OK, clicked what I thought should make cover browser appear and restarted - but nowt appears :-(

What should I have ticked? Did the Preferences / Look&Feel / Cover Browser / Sep window and 15 covers - no difference on restarting??

Just to clarify Kiwidudes 'Repair'::
The 'Check Library' function will clear the internal DB of the flag 'has cover' if no longer found. It can't put back, what is gone and not available.

Chill - I was thinking that that might be a way to trigger bulk finding - I haven't done anything to the folders...

I realised the jackets bit was unrelated - just mentioned cos happened whilst playing and as I said, "should I start another thread...."

I will investigate Modify ePub

Shift+Alt+B is the keyboard shortcut for the cover browser. It is the icon down the bottom of the main screen with the black background and white arrow on it (don't get me started on icon choices again).

You can google these things you know rather than posting in this thread...

I would never deliberately damage a library

The 'Check' might find other errors and fix those also, when there might be a better way of recovering (the QC plugin, Modify EPUB PI )


Besides, there ARE places a 'default' cover may have been used.

On a whole, this duck hates (full) Auto anything.

Bulk Metadata edit has a cover operation section (remove is a option).

Tag books as you go, the select all tagged and use the remove cover setting

Its the "Tag books as you go" I was trying to avoid - I just thought I could visibly pick from a "cover.jpg" search in windows and delete all the crud very quickly

Got cover browser going now - just can't find how to settle it into viewing the calibre stuff too - wasting more time playing

Detach it, then you can place and size it.
