Hebrew pdf output for kindle - newbie

Hi All, great forum!
I am very impressed by calibre, but have not managed to figure out how to do the following.
Kindle does not support hebrew (without the font hack), and even with the font hack does not support bidi or right-to-left text.
However, with a well sized page and font, hebrew pdf displays nicely.
I have done this manually by copy-paste to word with A6 page size and narrow margins, then saving as pdf.
I would like to be able to choose to do the same for free ebooks and/or news feeds via calibre.
This link http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...ghlight=hebrew seems to be the right direction, but I didn't completely understand it.
I would like to be able to change the output at will (i.e. not have all books - including english ones - output as pdf).
Will I have to change the global preference each time? Which global preference is relevant? Can I run two instances of calibre each with a different global preference?

Thanks!

Welcome to mobileread....

You'll need to post in that thread you linked to, and ask for clarity on anything you don't understand...

Thanks Geoff, I have done as you suggested, though I think my question was a little broader than the thread in question.
