insert page with book's metadata into ePub

Apple iBooks is so shitty it does not search (when searching the library for a book) amongst ePub metadata, so I thought I would use that calibre's feature where you can insert a page with metadata into the ePub.

Do I have to go through the conversion process to do that or is there a way / plugin to just modify the file?

thank you!

Maybe no need for plug-in - I think its in the baseline - Polish Books, use Preferences->Toolbars to pop it into one or more of your tool bars if its not there already.

That's not to say Modify is not a great PI, but Polish is simpler (not as many options), and a tad quicker.

Thank You, I tried with the plugin and it worked like a charm. I just wonder if there is a way to change the jacket template, to include different metadata, change order and so on. Thank you and have an happy Easter!

Put on your hacking hat : Make a copy of the template found in the Program's Resources\Jacket folder.

Custom Copies should ALWAYS be placed into the same relative (to the parent) in the Calibre configuration folder. Those prevail (and don't get replaced when updating versions)
