Convert from a specific format?

I have tried searching for this, but I wasn't sure of how to phrase the search properly, so if I have missed the answer, my sincere apologies:

I'm migrating from Kindle to Kobo, and have many books in multiple formats - is it possible to select books for conversion by format? For example, select all epubs for conversion to kepub, and all mobis for conversion to AZW3? I've given my Paperwhite to my Dad and have found that it definitely prefers AZW3 to mobi, so I'd like to load my Kobo Clara with kepubs, load his 'new' Kindle with AZW3s then delete all the formats I no longer need

not formats:azw3 (for those you want AZW3 )

not formats:kepub (for your Kobo. BTW It will read epub)


You need to run each separately and set the output format in the bulk conversion dialog

Thanks so much, theducks! I know Kobo will read epub, I was just button-press happy

My Dryer still has. Am I trapped in a time warp?

Since this forum is all about mobile reading devices, I'm tempted to win this "I'm so old" game by replying "my tablet's cuneiform"
