Question auto-convert pdf to mobi (Kindle)

Hello everyone,

I'm regularly sending documents to my Kindle Touch with the "send to device" button, which is handy because, most of the time, I don't have to check the file types.

The trouble is that some of them are pdfs, and it is much more comfortable to read them in the .mobi format. But since pdfs are supported by Kindles, they are simply sent to the device without any change.

Is there a way to get Calibre auto-convert (or at least ask if I want to convert) a pdf when using this button?

The driver configuration screen has a list of supported types. Uncheck any you want to have converted when you do the send to device.
