Building eBooks, what happens when HTML file changes?

I'm using Calibre to build my eBooks from HTML files.

However, it appears if I make a change to an HTML file there is no way to tell Calibre to update the book and refresh the HTML data in the ZIP file it created. The only way seems to be to completely delete the book and create a new one which is extremely tedious as all the meta data and conversion settings have to be re-entered.

Am I overlooking something, or this really the only way?

Thanks for any info.

Got it! Thank you so much Kovid. I knew I'm just missing something. Between this and the issue you solved for me yesterday it looks like I am finally able to REALLY use Calibre to create pretty much all my eBooks.

Thank you so much!
