PDF to EPUB cover page issues

I am trying to use calibre so I can upload parts of research papers that I need to read for my class. Which means it has no set book cover and I dont know how to stop Calibre from making the first page the cover page. Please help!

Im using nook simple touch.

Download Sigil and set up any cover you want (recommended at least 600x800).

Either way, it has to have a cover. Calibre probably just takes a snapshot of the first page and saves it as an image.

Calibre does take the first page as the cover regardless if it's just text or a graphic image.

There is a plugin to allow one to design a cover. It make not be pretty, but it will work.
