Automatically convert

I want Calibre to automatically convert anything I have added to it into ePub, instead of be clicking "Convert" then "Ok"
Can this be done?

Kovid is noted for being succinct. If I had posted it, the message board would have said:

No .

Update: The spaces are placed before the period, then after you reply only one space is shown in the post. When I edit this the above actually has 4 spaces between the No and the period.

And quite honestly, EBN, Kovid's software doesn't ask you to jump through hoops. Converstion with Calibre ain't exactly a labour-intensive or time-consuming job. Very best. Neil

Thank you for the laugh! This would be a nice feature....to automatically cool all books (formats selected from checklist, so that you can exclude pdfs) to epub on import...with default settings.

But they won't work with your 1150/1200.

I am going to assume you are being sarcastic.
But this would be a nice feature for me, as I get my books as HTML and then edit the format to something specific, which is recognised by Calibre when you convert to ePub.
For me it would be more streamlined, because I add it and then click convert then Ok. Then I got to save it to Desktop. If it could do this, when I add it, it would be easier for me.
