Question Eject button on toolbar?

I know I can choose "eject device" via the drop-down arrow on the device icon, but is there a way to add an eject button directly to the menu?

TIA

If You have the Calibre Icon in the Tool Tray: The Eject choice is also there.

You can also use the 'stock', OS provided one

I know this is an old thread, but I found it with a search and think it's still applicable.

Because I have nightly news recipe that runs and I only buy/add book content irregularly, most days I click just one button - the eject button. Would it be difficult to expose a dedicated eject button on the menu bar?

Pie-in-the-sky idea, of which I've got no idea how it would be implemented: It'd be handy if I didn't have to eject my reader manually each morning. Some (not so useful?) ideas are to add an auto-eject option for a recipe or eject at a given time of the day. Maybe an option for the existing eject option (or new eject button above!) to eject once the current job queue is empty (ie, after all sync activity is done). I fully accept that anything along these lines is very likely to never eventuate .

If it matters at all, I have a Sony PRS T1 with Calibre running on Windows 7.

Cheers,
Simon.

You can add a keyboard shortcut for eject via Preferences->Keyboard.

Hi Kovid,

I've just been through the complete Preferences->Keyboard section and couldn't find an eject entry, nor could the search for shortcut name find "eject".

Cheers,
Simon.

Ah yes, that particular action is not exposed, sorry.

There is the SmartEject plugin. It has some options to check the state of books before ejecting, but if you turn them all off, it will just eject the device.

Thanks David, this is exactly what I was looking for! I mustn't have been using the right mix of search terms.

Cheers,
Simon.

FYI there are sticky posts at the top of all calibre forums that, unlike other forums, actually have currently pertinent information. One particular post you might find interesting is the Index of plugins.

Good reading.
