Who thought mm dd yy was a good idea when most of the world uses dd mm yy?
I use yyyymmdd in notes, labels and file names now as it means the same inside USA and outside (ISO layout). Also works for sorts.
I do like the idea of adding 10,000 to AD/CE years so as it's religion/culture independent and covers all of human history since agriculture.
Holocene Calendar.

There is a 2038 issue on some applications and OSes.

Actually, both MM-DD-YY and DD-MM-YY are bad ideas. The best way to do dates is YYYY-MM-DD. That should be worldwide. And no more YY. It has to be YYYY.

It is ther on the RIGHT edge. The shape has changed: There are no end Arrowheads.
But try changing the way you interact with a Window (not just Calibre).
A Scroll Wheel or Trac pad edge (right and Bottom) swipe
Use the Keyboard <spacebar advances a page. many older emails had this as a 'single key read', they even moved to the NEXT un-read mail when the bottom was hit>, page Down, page Up,Home, End, . CTRL+key jumped to the extremes
Right click the scroll bar: Many, even older Calibre had Top and Bottom choices

Test of Calibre 4.2 converting DOCX to epub and then epub to dual Mobi and AZW was fine.
Testing fixing Gutenberg paragraph spacing/indent fine.

How do I get it to add extra books in a Library folder copied from a different Calibre Library? The Library maintenance lists them but doesn't add. I tried a different option and the extra books were then the only ones listed (and had covers + metadata) and then all the others are in the files found not in database.

Not a massive issue. Copied the ENTIRE library from original laptop to test laptop and that works.

many Extra Books fix : Copy To Library: <New one> (Created with USE EXISTING): Delete.
The ones left in the Library folder are the problem ones. Use Add Books: From Directories on those

I'm not sure I understand that entirely. However I'll try it on another spare laptop. I think I know what you mean. That's a different starting icon/menu point?

Thanks.

Thanks.
By using Calibre to Move ( in essence what the Delete accomplishes) KNOWN books to a new empty Library, The remnants are UNKNOWN (to Calibre) and await disposition (Usually, just do a normal ADD)

Right click on the viewer and click on "preferences". There's a sub-section for "scrolling-preferences" which allows you to add the scroll bar.

Hi Kovid,
I read a lot of threads about new viewer and does not see the answer, will it be always without toolbar or it will be added later?
I'v changed already preferences with page position, scrollbar, table of contents. But the old toolbar gave more opportunity and quicker without need additionally to right click or Esc. All advices from other members was to do more click as it was before or to use keyboard shortcuts.
And the new viewer in 4.2 starts 3-4 seconds slower as from 3.48 by me.
I like the calibre program, but the new viewer on this state forces to do more to achieve the same or less.
If the answer is No toolbar later, then I need to use portable or old version.
If the answer is Yes, but later. Then I wait for updates.
Thanks in advance.

You are making a big deal over nothing. 3-4 seconds make no noticeable difference. As for the viewer, just right click to get to the options. They don't have to be sitting on the side waiting for you to access them.
