Fixing repeating cover

After converting an odt file with embedded jpg cover image to epub, cover appears twice. Is there a quick fix for this? Thanks in advance for reply!

I am not sure if ODT allows the cover image to be tagged as 'cover'
but the reason it appears, was Calibre added a "cover page" because it did nt have one to replace.
Your original was treated as just an image.

Use the Calibre editor, find the second one in the preview, and delete the line of code from the code view (eg
Code:
 <p ...><img  ... </img></p>
)

Or you can find the two HTML files at the top of the file list, highlight one of them and hit the delete key. I usually delete the second one. This is much quicker than opening the file and deleting the HTML code.

deback,

Thanks as well. Actually stumbled on to this solution in fixing the repeating cover problem by deleting the specific code, as suggested by ducks. As a second problem, if you want to remove the default cover supplied by calibre (i.e., to create an epub of text only) deleting the first HTML file in its entirety will do it.

To REMOVE existing covers

Modify EPUB plugin has a section just for covers. (As I mentioned before, the second appearance was just an IMAGE. To be a 'cover', Both the PAGE and the IMAGE file need to have been flagged as a cover. That is why this PI would not work for your old problem)

To STOP covers being added in Future CONVERSION to EPUB

Preferences: Output Options: EPUB (side bar): No Default cover (no tick)

THIS AFFECTS ALL EPUB CONVERSIONS.
You can also change this on a PER BOOK basis, by adjusting the Conversion Dialog that comes up at the start of all conversions

ducks,

I see now that the no cover option can be selected for the output file. Thanks for pointing it out.
