Thanks.

New question: Line 16 of titlepage.xhtml has <preserveAspectRatio="none">. I'd like to change this to "meet". (It fixes the image on the cover page going kind of stretchy on Kobo.)

I think CustomOutput on Epub Cover would work, but the code on the page doesn't match up to what I see so I'm not entirely sure.

Code:
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en">
    <head>
        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
        <meta name="calibre:cover" content="true" />
        <title>Cover</title>
        <style type="text/css" title="override_css">
            @page {padding: 0pt; margin:0pt}
            body { text-align: center; padding:0pt; margin: 0pt; }
        </style>
    </head>
    <body>
        <div>
            <svg version="1.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg"
                xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink"
                width="100%" height="100%" viewBox="0 0 400 640"
                preserveAspectRatio="none">
                <image width="400" height="640" xlink:href="../cover.jpg"/>
            </svg>
        </div>
    </body>
</html>
EDIT: The code on the page matches a book with a downloaded cover. Is this a GC thing?

did you tick Preserve Aspect Ratio in the EPUB/KEPUB Conversion Output settings?

Oh right, FFF uses HTML > ePub conversion I think? I ticked the option on but am still getting preserveAspectRatio="none"

Trying to download using FFF from SciFi-Stories, or SOL.
I have two computers, lets call them A and B.
On computer A I can download just fine, FFF knows my ID and PW.
To download on computer B I have to enter my ID and PW each time.

Both computers have the identical plug-in installed. Which file (and where) should I copy over from computer A to B to solve this?

copy over the personal.ini contents to computer B and it should fix the issue

FFF doesn't create a titlepage.xhtml file. FFF creates cover.xhtml (for cover) and title_page.xhtml.

I see titlepage.xhtml replace FFF's cover.xhtml when I Polish a cover into an epub or using Convert.

So I don't think this is an FFF issue directly, I think it's whatever other processing you are doing. (Which would include Polishing the cover in automatically from FFF.)

I would look at the Convert settings, EPUB output, 'Preserve aspect' checkbox next to the 'SVG cover' checkbox. That toggles preserveAspectRatio between "xMidYMid meet" and "none" for me when Polish updating a cover.

username/password settings are in "personal.ini" as cyber21tan said and probably needs to be copied over. It's edited in FFF plugin in the plugin Configuration, personal.ini tab, then Edit personal.ini button. Be sure to click the OK button not Cancel leaving Configure to save changes.

I forgot about auto-polish. That would probably explain it.

I just downloaded a new fic and also got xMidYMid. So that'll work. Thanks.

I think this is a new StoriesOnline issue, since it happened with every one of the almost 60 stories I just downloaded/updated. I think it's likely caused by some change in the site since they now have an option to add notes to stories and that wasn't there when I did my weekly update last week.

Anyway, the issue is that the story summaries aren't being copied, and if you are updating a story it deletes the summary already on Calibre. I'm hoping this will be a simple fix, since I know SOL is kind of a hassle for you to keep working since they change little things so often, it seems.

The description parsing in adapter_storiesonlinenet is... complex. I didn't write it and I don't have examples handy for the many different cases it appears to address. So hopefully my small change won't affect anything else.

I hope you didn't take what I said to mean YOU were messing stuff up, I was saying that SOL seems to change small things so frequently that I'm surprised you can keep up/keep dealing with it. I'm VERY glad you do, but still.

Thanks!

No problem, site changes are a fact of life.

Thank you, that fixed my pressing issue, but did not answer the question where the information might be. I run Calibre portable and may want to delete any traces.

FFF stores its settings, including personal.ini, inside the library database. So it physically resides inside the metadata.db file in your library directory.

Thanks for the info.
So it is part of Calibre and not somewhere in the registry or whatnot.
