Oops, already posted before this thread started. Well, might as well post here, too. Two things. one, how much RAM is Calibre supposed to take up on average with .6? I just want to know so I can compare my results with the expected ones to see if there is a memory leak on my end.

Also, here is the post I put up earlier: When I try adding pdf's to the library, it takes quite awhile for the program to add the file. I assume it is looking for the metadata, because it is stuck on the "Adding Screen" at 0%.Previous versions such as 5.14 seemed to add the files much faster. *shrug* Could be just me. :P

Just out of curiosity, why is it not possible to use LRF as an input format?

Kovid I reopened issue 2914 based on John's earlier comment I suspect he did not realize the unicode was valid and his fix was most likely to ignore invalid unicode (a good solution) but the unicode was valid and I put additional info in the description.

Jeff, calibre's conversion process has two parts the dissecting (file input) of a file format and the creating of a file format (file output). While calibre has had the creating of an LRF done long ago he has not got around to the dissecting of the LRF format. His lrf2lrs has been in alpha(pre beta) for some time now so I suspect he has had little time in creating a robust enough solution to dissect LRF.

@Ralob: I haven't actually looked at memory consumption in windows. 0.6 will use more memory than 0.5 because it keeps a few worker processes in the background.

Adding PDFs is slow because calibre now tries to read the metadata from them. You can disable this via Preferences->Plugins

@starrigger: Basically I've never got around to implementing LRF -> HTML conversion. That's all that's needed to make conversion of LRF possible.

@=X=: Cool, now that I will be make weekly releases again, you should see your bugs fixed quickly.

I have some ideas regarding user experience and interaction. Would it be OK if I presented a rather extensive post with some ideas on how to make Calibre a more streamlined and cohesive user experience? I think at current it's a great set of tools, but it involves more learning on the part of the user than it should need to.

Apple User and .pdf conversion update

How do I remove the older version of Calibre on an Apple? I have never done that before, doesn't the program leave preferences or something behind if I drag the program into trash?

Also, the only reason I would want to upgrade is if when I convert from .pdf to .lrf the headers would be removed, instead of the headers appearing in strange places. Is that changed in this update? Otherwise I am fine with the older version. Yes, bells and whistles would be nice too, but I don't like updating versions much. Thanks!

It is a nice program.

Some comments to the What's new in calibre 0.6? page:

I count 18 formats... maybe saying "dozens of e-book formats" is too much (Is OEB really not supported as input format? I'd have said it's a simple enough format for that.)

In the screenshot for the wizard, it says "Booken" instead of "Bookeen". And the magic wand looks stretched vertically.

I see you've got Biggles in your library. It must be more than 50 years since I've read one of the books in that series.

Congratulations on what looks so far to be a marvellous program.

Regards, Alex

=X=
Thanks =X=, I realized it it was detecting the numbers after the unicode character once I got a look at those screen shots of how it was supposed to render. I've closed it out and according to Kovid the fix made it into 0.6.0.

This would be an excellent enhancement -- and I look forward to it.

I just upgraded to 6.0 on my mac. Everything seems good except when I go to edit metadata and add a new file format (html, imp) the program freezes and I have to force quit. Is there any way to fix it? I think I accidentally replaced the old version which worked in this respect when I installed 6.0.

I haven't tried importing a new book yet. I'll have to see if that freezes things up too.

BTW, I have a huge number of books in the library. Not sure if that makes a difference here.

Thanks, Sherry
