Optimal Settings in Calibre for creating Kobo eReader EPUB Files

Hi can anyone post screen shots or settings for Calibre EPUB export? Is there already support in Calibre for the Kobo EReader?

I wish there was Ichen, to both questions.

I'll be going over to that forum later to file a change request. I'll also be having a look at the newspaper part.

This thing has taken 3 days away from me already.

Afraid not my friend. Bottom line KOBO is way too new. But you might be refering to the fact it does convert to epub.

Unfortunately nothing specific in the templates, etc.

Yes it does. Check the changelog on calibre website. It's revision 5176.

I don't see anything on the changelog that would indicate support for KOBO.

I do however see:
Quote:
19:10 Ticket #5241 (Support for KoboReader ePub) closed by kovidgoyal
fixed: Fixed in branch trunk. The fix will be in the next release.
Mr Goyal doesn't indicate the date of the release. Am I missing something.

EDIT
I specifically d'loaded the current version and there is no KOBO listed in the ereaders list right at the start.

You can use save to disk to save to the desktop, then drag to the Kobo reader. And in the next release (they are typically every two weeks or so) it will be there. What's the problem?

That list is pretty limited. For example boox is supported but is also not included in that list.

I checked again and saw that the revision I mentioned was done after the release of 0.6.51. My mistake. Sorry.

What the heck, I'm blind, deaf and stupid so it's easy for me to miss something staring right at me.
