No cover displayed

Hello,

I am new to Calibre. I have some pdf ebooks that I want to convert to epub and/or pdb format to read on my ipod Touch. The conversion works fine with the exception that the cover to the book doesn't not convert. I am on a Mac and any help in getting this to convert so the cover is displayed would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

I'd suggest just adding the cover separately to calibre.

Hello,

The cover shows up in Calibre, but it does not appear in the converted from when I open Stanza or Ereader.
Thanks,
James

I've recently run into a similar issue. I've begun to create pdf books customized for the 6" size of my Sony Reader, and they really look beautiful --- even better than the Sony lrf default. I "Add" the books to Calibre, then edit the metadata in Calibre to point to a particular cover to use, and then have Calibre send the books to the Sony PRS505. Everything works great --- except that the cover doesn't get transferred.

Any ideas, Kovid? Is Calibre actually able to do a full metadata edit on an imported pdf?

Not even in the thumbnail view in Stanza?

calibre doesn't set the cover page on metadata edit of PDF.

Thanks, Kovid --- I sort of suspected that, but I had to get the word from "The Master."
