Multiple Format Output

Is there a way to convert a book to more than one format without having to do the full conversation routine for each output format?

Thank for any help.

Jim

Couldn't you use the command line interface and create a batch file that does it in several steps?

Thanks for the help.

I'll try the command line when I get a little more experience with the program.

When you do, be advised that Calibre sometimes has trouble running multiple line batch files. I'm not sure if that carries over to the ebook-convert module, but it was definitely a problem with calibredb. One solution is to stick "start" in front of each line. That causes each line to spawn it's own copy of cmd, but leads to multiple simultaneous execution.

Another solution is to use the batch file "for" looping commands to process all the files you want to convert, although it's a bit trickier to write. All of the loops will be executed, even if the next line in the batch file isn't.
