The loss of current book highlight isn't critical, and it can be worked around by checking the suppress notify setting. Calibre version 4 is on the horizon, I don't have any insight as to whether it will necessitate any changes to PI's, if it does, whoever makes those changes can have a look at it then.



And if they're inclined, I'd like an option to strip selected dc elements from the opf - e.g, description, subjects, and identifiers.

What I would like to see stripped (if there is another version) is ePub 3 specific code in both the XHTML files OPF.

I frequently use "Modify ePub" and, similar to Stumped, earlier this year began experiencing the non-intuitive annoyance of the screen display always jumping to the start of the book list after I saved the result of the Modify ePub, but I always want to return to the modified book itself so that I can delete the original pre-modified version, and perhaps move to the next book on the list.

Although both approaches suggested by ILoveJedd and BetterRed provide an easy work-around, it still seems a strange and unnecessary glitch. Using the arrow keys (or scrolling down to find the still-highlighted book) works if I'm not distracted by something else and remember what it was I was doing. I'd prefer to not disable the "prompt to save ePubs" functionality because a) sometimes I've made a mistake and decide not to save the modified ePub, and b) auto-saving a problematic modification can have a domino effect by deleting e a prior original version (just ignore this last comment 'b' if not self-explanatory as explaining would just distract from the main consideration). Hopefully there is an easy answer to removing the glitch itself.

You say that as if it’s a simple function. Far from it. I, for one, have no intention of going anywhere near that particular can of worms.

While it’s true that some EPUB 3 books are basically “EPUB 2 with a couple of tiny changes,” many actually take advantage of the enhanced capabilities of the EPUB 3 format. Those simply cannot be automagically downgraded to EPUB 2; such a change requires complex intervention which is far beyond the scope of the Modify EPUB plugin.

So, you can wish for it all you like, but you’d probably have better luck looking for dedicated conversion software or pleading for someone to create an entirely new plugin for that specific task.
