Recreate cover from PDF's first page

Hi,

I have added books by the command line and the books in PDF format have no covers. When I manually add with GUI these PDF's the cover is taken from the first page and it is OK. Can I regenerate cover's already in collection by taking the first page of the PDF file?

Use the bulk metadata edit dialog.

Right! My fault, I haven't looked at Bulk Metadata Edit dialog. I just thought that there are the same options as in the single file Edit Metadata dialog. BTW I think that 'use cover from the source file' option should be on the single edit page also.

Hmm, where? Sorry, but in the single edit metadata I have in the 'Change cover' group:
- Browse
- Remove
- Crop
- Download cover
- Generate cover
(I've translated these to english, so it may be not 100% exact)

What I think is:
Browse - browse for image file
Generate cover - will generate it using metadata, but not taking the first page
Download - will look in external sites

So where is located the option for taking the cover from the first page of the PDF file?
