Epub is renamed when loaded on KOBO
Does anyone have this problem? I purchased my KOBO to use with my jewelry making tutorials. First I had a problem with Calibre but now I have AnyBizSoft pdf converter and it works great. My problem happens with I load the epub onto KOBO. It doesn't matter what I name the file as the pdf or epub when I get it onto KOBO the name is changed. Sometimes it's a huge long file name with the actual name of the technique in the middle or a bunch show up at "by" that's it. Makes it really hard to quickly find the tutorial I am looking for. Help if you can. Thanks.

I suggest you post this in the mobile read kobo forum. They're full of good advice over there, here's the link

I would second kiwipippa's advice.
In short, the reading software displays the title direct from metadata. You can use Calibre or Sigil to edit the metadata title to something more appropriate.

If you are running Windows look at the file properties in the Windows Explorer right-button menu. There should be a PDF tab in the properties window and it will list some of the meta-data including title, author, subject and keywords.
Windows will display the file name and even if you change it this will not change the internal PDF title that Calibre and other tools use. As sabredog suggests try altering the title and author within the Calibre conversion window as you convert the document, I believe you will have to use individual rather than batch conversion to do this.
Note that PDF security controls include the ability to restrict changing meta-data so depending on how the document was created this might cause a problem. You can check secuirty settings on a PDF document by opening it is Adobe Reader, selecting "Properties" from the file menu and then the "Security" tab to list the settings.
