Question Calibre Portable - Which Library Opens?

I have recently switched to using calibre portable instead of the regular calibre installation. I pinned the calibre-portable.exe to my toolbar when I open calibre it opens with my original library not the library which was active when I closed calibre. I have two libraries, is it the intended programming for calibre to do this?

yes, that is intended behavior. calibre-portable.exe is designed to always use the calibre library and config folders in the Calibre Portable folder.

Thanks for the answer, I figured that was what was going on but I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing a setup somewhere.

Is it not possible at all to use another standard library on the same portable drive?

You can use whatever library you like with the portable version, but when calibre portable first opens it will always start with the library in the calibre library folder within the Calibre Portable folder.

I often move to other libraries after I open my portable version.

One thing I've noticed, it appears the locations of other libraries aside from the default are hard coded in the settings. Is there a way to change the behavior so it uses relative paths instead? Or perhaps calibre-portable.exe might be modified so it's able to do its magic for custom libraries same as it does for the default "Calibre Library" folder?

Thanks!
