Strip PDOC tag without losing customization

I have a Mobi file that has things like quote margins, drop caps, etc. It looks great, but when I transfer the file from Calibre to my Kindle Paperwhite, of COURSE, that annoying PERSONAL tag is along the bottom and I can't see the file from the "Books" section.

I tried converting it in Calibre and removing the PDOC tag, which works great, except it strips all the custom formatting of my book.

Does anyone know how to strip a PDOC tag without actually reconverting the file and losing all the CSS? Thanks!

The Java Mobi Metadata Editor works just fine for me, but don't strip it, change it to EBOK.

I tried this. I added code 501 and tried both EBOK and [EBOK]. Neither worked, what am I doing wrong?

I have no idea, EBOK works for me. Are you deleting the file from the device before you add the new one?

Yes.

I delete the file from the Kindle and Calibre.
Then I open the program.
Then I add 501-EBOK and save the new file.
Then I load the new file into Calibre.
Then I send it to my Kindle.
Still shows up with a PDOC tag.

Cool I'm out of thoughts on the subject.

That image was of a mobi that shows up as a book on my four different kindle models, so I have no more thoughts I can share, sorry. Maybe someone else will respond.

Are you trying to remove the personal banner on the books? I just did that on 9 of my side loaded books using the Quality Check plugin. Works great.

Yeah, I don't really understand that. It's just a bunch of PY files that won't load as plugins in Calibre, I'm not sure how it's supposed to fix the Personal tag. :/

You're not supposed to unzip it, you install the entire zipped file.

Hi. Sorry to bump a somewhat old thread, but this EBOK thing is driving me crazy.
I have a Kindle Paperwhite and recently bought the Humble eBook Bundle.

I downloaded the mobi for each book and using the Java Mobi Metadata Editor I added the EBOK cde type to each. I then added them to Calibre and added metadata. Then, using the Quality Check Plugin I used the Fix ASIN option.

After this, using the same Quality Check Plugin I confirmed I no longer had ASIN or CDE type errors.

I went ahead and transferred the books to my Kindle. From the 6 books, 3 are still tagged as Personal, opening the mobi with the metadata editor shows all fields are correct (501 to EBOK, 103 and 504 to the book's ASIN)

Am I missing something? Has anything changed for the PW that makes the books still be tagged as Personal? Is there any other field that needs to be added/edited/removed?

Thanks in advance for any help.
