Change default eReader, format & justification
I've recently replaced my Axim x50v & JetBook with a Kindle 3. I've been keeping Calibre up-to-date (currently 0.7.37). I thought I changed the settings in Calibre to default to the Kindle (Preferences > Common Options > Page Setup > Output Profile Kindle), yet when I choose to convert a book to MOBI format, the Page Setup still shows the JetBook 5-inch as the default Output Profile. I even ran the Welcome Wizard again, and the JetBook still shows up.
I also changed the preferred input order (Preferences > Behavior > Preferered Input Format Order) to LIT, MOBI, EPUB, yet when I choose to convert a book with LIT & EPUB formats, the default input format is EPUB.
I've also tried setting the default justification (Preferences > Common Options > Look & Feel > Text Justification) to Justify Text, yet when I convert a book, the default is still set to Original.
Is there someplace else I should be changing these options? Or does it work differently than I'm expecting?

You can apply the new global settings to your conversions by doing the following.
When you go to convert a single book you can click on the restore defaults button (see attached) on the bottom to place all of your new global settings to this conversion.
When you go to convert a group of books you can uncheck the Use saved conversion settings for individual books (see attached) at the top left to place all of your new global settings to these books for conversion.
