Angry PDF -> MOBI: a string is added to the bottom of each page

hey all. i just discovered calibre but can't get the conversion to work. i have a pdf that i am trying to convert to mobi for my kindle 3. im pretty sure i have tried everything. in the convert menu -> structure detection tab, i have checked remove header, remove footer, erased the string expressions, removed table of contents. basically combinations of all of those. however, i always get this string in the mobi file:

file:///C|/Documents%20and%20Settings/bernd.wand/Mis...ugh,%20Dave%20-%20BOOK%20(V%201.0)(Illustrated).htm (1 of 430)27/02/2006 10:04:53

can someone help please!?

You need to add a regex to match that pattern in the remove header or remove footer settings.

Try:
Code:
((?<=</a>)\s*file:////?[A-Z].*<br>|file:////?[A-Z].*<br>(?=\s*<hr>))
