embed metadata option
I want to make sure I know what is happening to my files before I make any changes to them. There is an "Embed metadata" tool bar feature. Does it also update the cover image if that was changed in the "Edit metadata" window? Is using "Embed metadata" the same as only selecting "Update metadata in the book files" and "Update the cover in the book files" in the "Polish book" feature?
Thanks in advance.

Also embed metadata can only update existing covers, it cannot insert a cover into a book that does not already have one. Polish can do the latter as well.
