Title from file name while retaining cover
Sorry if this a duplicate post, I tried to find a solution via the threads but guess I'm not using the right search terms, if one already exists.
What I want to do is have Calibre take the title of a file from the source, while getting the cover (if one exists) from the content. I tried changing the way Calibre gets the name from the source file in preferences, but this also took away the covers which were already present. Is there any way to do this? I'm converting several types of formats...epub, pdf, cbr.

Not in one step as far as I know.
However once you have the book in Calibre you can go into the Edit Metadata dialog for a book, select the format that has the cover you want, and then click the cover icon to extract it as the Calibre cover.

You can also get the covers from files in one step for a number of already imported books using the bulk metadata edit dialog.
