Alf provides an MD5 checksum for a reason. (To reassure people.)

Worked like a dream for me, thank you! Alf is definitely an e-reader's (as in a reader of e-books ) best friend; I don't go anywhere near Reader for PC anymore . In a matter of seconds I just added the two latest Trek books to my ever growing To Be Read queue!

May I suggest a change of name for this thread: "Significant update to Apprentice Alf's Calibre Plug-ins"?

I use v. 5.2 desktop drop and drag tools because I'm a control freak and like fewer layers between me and my code. There's been no change in these tools so no need to alarm non-Calibre tool wielders with the original headline.

The underlying code of the drag & drop tools has seen several updates since 5.2. Mainly for Topaz books, I think, but I always prefer to run the latest one.

6.0.1 fixes a problem that the last few versions of the drag n drop had when processing more than four files in one drop too.

I have uploaded a beta/final candidate for an update to the tools to 6.0.2. The download link is in a comment at my blog.

I would appreciate reports (at my blog or by email to me) on the efficacy of the tools (especially from people running Linux/wine), but also comments on the ReadMes and other documentation.

Do bear in mind that details comments on my tools aren't permitted here at Mobileread.

Many thanks for the update. Your tools allow for more choice and the freedom to port purchased books to preferred reader devices.

I found the update by accident when just checking to be sure I had the latest updates, the streamlined plug-in is much appreciated! Thank you for all the hard work Apprentice Alf!
