Calibre Font Configuration Plug in

Right now, on Calibre 8.55, I have a plug in that allows me to set a default font for epubs that Calibre converts for my Nook Glow. Right now, it works fine, but when I need a feature that is a part of the updated Calibre, I have to shuffle books between computers in order to use two different versions of Calibre - one to use the updated features of the latest calibre and one to do the conversion so that I get the right font...

While this isn't horrible, it is time consuming. Is there any way to get an updated plugin so that it works with the latest version? How can I set my books to automatically convert and have a default font? The font I use is Droid Serif if that helps!

Thanks!

Current calibre releases include the ability to embed fonts when doing a conversion, built in. Look in the Look & Feel section of the conversion dialog.

And it won't matter which device I am using? In previous versions, the Nook Glow didn't react the same way... I will test it on the version that I upgraded. Thanks!!!

Will the embed fonts in the Look & Feel Section work for the metadata page that I add to the front of the book?

The embedded fonts will be used for the entire eBook.
