Header/Footer Problems with conversion

I have problems with pdf conversions in Calibre. I get author name and page numbers radomly throughout the text. I checked, and I have remove header and remove footer checked under conversion. The PDF line conversion is set to .50.

Thanks for your help and Merry Christmas!

The default will not work in most cases. You will need to write a regular expression for the file in question.

I don't have the skill to write a regex to effectively remove the header and footer from a PDF file.

So I take an extra step. I download the free mobipocket creator, then import the PDF into mobipocket creator, remove the header and footer, then save the file as a html and finally I convert it to the format I want with Calibre.

At least I think this is what I did the last few times I needed the footer and header removed. I'm at work and can't reference my home machine at this time.

UPDATE: It was too long ago for my memory to be reliable so I just grabbed a couple of horrible PDF files and reinstalled Mobipocket Creator. I discovered I was wrong.

Mobipocket Creator removed many atrocious headers for me in the past so I fooled my old memory into thinking it worked all the time. Even when it removed a bad text header I had to manually remove page numbers or other junk using wordpad or MS Word. I primarily used Mobipocket Creator to remove some trash headers and change a PDF to HTML so I could do a quick clean up of the html file.

Sorry for the confusion.... now where else did I post this error?

Good Luck!
Thanks. That is what I have been doing - convert with mobipocket creator and then import into Calibre. Works like a charm, althoug I think I could probably format Calibre to make mobipocket creator redundant, but I'm not there yet.
