Prevent PDF Conversion

Hey all,

I'm looking for a way to prevent PDF conversion from happening when using both auto-add and auto-convert. I would like the PDF to sit in the library as is.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Put PDF in auto-add watch folder.
2. Calibre finds and moves PDF to library.
3. Calibre attempts to convert PDF to EPUB format (default for iPad)

New Behavior:
1. Put PDF in auto-add watch folder.
2. Calibre finds and moves PDF to library.
3. Filter prevents conversion.

Thanks!

Thanks Kovid.

I probably should have described the issue in a bit more detail.

The issue is that I would like some formats (mobi, djvu, etc.) to be converted automatically on add. While other formats (pdf) I would like added, but not converted.

Is there any way to shut off the PDF input conversion plugin?

No, there's no way to do that.
