Use a different cover

I'd like to be able to use a different image from the one in cover.jpg for the output of a conversion

So I tried dragging the desired picture into Book Cover in the conversion dialogue, see Capture1 - that looked like it was going to work, but it didn't see Capture 2 - the MOBI has what's in cover.jpg, not what I dragged into Book Cover

So I tried putting the desired picture file in the Change cover image field in the conversion dialogue, see Capture 3 - that did work, but it also overwrote what was cover.jpg - see Capture 4

The result I'm after is shown in Capture 5

You cannot. conversions always use cover.jpg or whatever cover was defined in the source document.

Thanks

Any chance of an enhancement to allow 'import' of an image to be used for this conversion - another conversion would would require specifying the 'import' again.

Aside - it seems that drag/drop of an image into Book Cover area doesn't have any effect, which begs the question... then why is it enabled?
