Default Input Format

I have a large number of books that have both zipped html and lrf formats. The lrfs were created from the html source. I want to bulk convert to epub but when I go to convert a single book I notice that the source is populated with lrf, not zip.

In preferences I see that the "preferred input format" shows html above lrf in the list. So, I would think that Calibre would default to that. I want to bulk convert but I'm guessing that it will use the lrf's instead of the zipped html. Bulk convert does not offer a way to change the input format the way an individual convert does.

So, is there any way to get Calibre to use a particular format for bulk conversions?

If you have more then one format of ebook then there is a little tab at the top of the window that you can choose which version to use for conversion. It is the Input tab.
