regenerate cover for PDF books
When adding a pdf book to calibre, a cover is generated from the first page of the pdf. Is there a way to force cover regeneration, maybe after you had edited (mostly cropped) the first page of the pdf? Or should you delete and reimport from scratch?

What I do is :
If the generated cover is 'basically right" then I edit the cover (trim most often) in the book folder using Irfanview via the Open With plug in, and then use the Resize Cover plug in. I try to avoid altering the PDF, as its usually the 'original' source.
I'm not too fussy about covers, consistent size in Book Details is all I worry about, and a lot of my 'books' don't have covers so I generate one using one of a small set of images that convey top level genre.
