Overview for ePub files on the Nook
So I load my book up in Calibre and edit the meta-data with a nice cover, appropiate data and a book description like a good boy. Then I send it to my Nook which works flawlessly in Calibre... mostly....
The problem is my book description from the comments field of the meta-data doesn't get transfered to the Overview section of the book when it is on my Nook. I know I can have it send the meta-data as a seperate page for the book itself, but I would like it to look like the books I've purchased through B&N.
Anyone have a way to populate the overview section for a book on the Nook?
Other than that Calibre is an amazing and essential part of my new eReader life. And really this sounds like more of a Nook issue then a Calibre issue.

First off: Welcome to the group.
Did you Convert your book after you added the Meta-data?
Convert, inserts stuff into the document, even if you convert from EPUB to EPUB.

I do not think it is possible right now to do what you want. I have also tried without sucsess.

I agree with Madam Broshkina, that this probably isn't possible today. If anyone has an example of a 3rd party (not B&N) ebook on the Nook with a working overview, then this might allow the Calibre team to reverse engineer whatever is required to do this.
