I have a crafting hobby, my specialty is making "too hard baskets", if you'd like one to put this project in.

Does that imply that calibre will (eventually) recognize kepubs as something it can display directly?

It already does. If you have a kepub, in the library, it can be opened by the viewer. But, it will just be treated as an epub.

Dear dev,

It's too bad that I have to update the cover when I'm in the Calibre-library. In other words, when I'm in the device-library view, KoboUtilities_button>"Upload covers for selected books" is greyed out (not clickable).

Could you please let us click "Upload covers for selected books" from within the device-library view?

Why? What reason do you need to do the update from the device list?

And when functions that are not available in one list, it usually because the function doesn't make sense for the books. In general, functions not in the device list is because they need information (the cover in this case) from somewhere. And if the book on the device does not match a book in the library, there is nowhere to get that information from. That is why these type of functions are only in the library list. They are acting on the books in the library that also are on the device. In general, they are pushing something from the library to the device, or pulling something from the device to the library.

Why do you need to update the covers?

He wants to do it.

He did have one request, that I was wishing I had (and would assist in using Library view to send an update.)
Not knowing the method Calibre uses for the In Library tick (has {id} available under the covers?), I wonder if it would be possible for a 'Jump to book in Library' when there is a tick.

It might matter why in order to find a solution.

Failed: Backing up Kobo Device Database

Starting yesterday I started to get the below when connecting my Kobo Clara HD.

Assume it's connected, but when I link a book on device to a book in my library, it seems to work, then on next connect, they're not linked.

calibre, version 4.23.0 (darwin, embedded-python: True)

Unless you have a recent backup of your database, I'd suggest logging out of your Kobo which will force a database rebuild. Your sideloaded books will not be removed and will be re-imported after you sign in again and your Kobo books will be available to be re-downloaded. I'm not certain if the next suggestion is needed since I haven't logged out in a while but if your Kobo is authorized with Adobe, I would also suggest backing up the activation.xml file from the .adobe-digital-editions directory and copying back after the sign in to save having to re-authorize your Kobo.

Good suggestion!

I did have a back up that likely wasn't borked as I plug in/sync up daily. But figured I'd try signing out and in. Seems to have fixed the database issue!

Adding to my list of things to try next time. THanks!

Another thing to do is configure Kobo Utilities to backup the database every time you plug your Kobo into Calibre. That way you'll have fairly recent updated database backups.

Umm... Jon... Please read the message you quoted. The part where @jwilker says "I plug in/sync up daily".

Interestingly (to me) while I do back up, I've never needed to restore, have never looked into how that actually works, LOL.
