[Marvin] editing metadata and syncing back

One of the features I loved the most in Marvin is its ability to edit metadata, really slick! But is there a way to sync the edited epub back? Right now, I keep all my epubs into google drive (but I think I will change, since it is not dependable) and I would like to edit metadata once and for all. Any way to upload them back and/or sync? What if I switched to Calibre as my main library?

Thank you.

Nope, that doesn't work. Marvin is no EPUB editor -- it's an e-reader app. It does give you the convenience of fixing improper metadata for the purpose of Marvin's internal library. For the fixed metadata to be synced back to an EPUB creator software like Calibre, Calibre would have to make that possible by making available an appropriate interface, but there apparently is no such thing.

Then do it in a real EPUB editor like Calibre.

Got it, thank you. Even though I wouldn't consider Calibre an epub editor, but rather a book library manager. If you have to edit epub, you have to installa plugin which is disabled by default, I guess it's modify epub or sort of.

Have a nice w/e.
