Small Suggestion for Calibre

Hi

Format conversions can take anything from a few seconds to several hours. Polish usually only takes a few seconds. Modify ePub can take up to a couple of minutes (as do the majority of format conversions).

Often while waiting for the job to finish I will start doing something else and get distracted. After a while I will remember the job and find it had finished quite a while earlier.

My suggestion is to add beep when any job is completed. This could be toggled so users who did not need/want it could turn it off.

What do people think?

Unless you turned them off, calibre will send notifications on all completed jobs via your OSes notifications system.

@Kovid - In windows 10 at least, there's no on/off switch for calibre notifications.

I have some programs that have their own settings. e.g. firefox RSS sidebar, qbittorrent, malware bytes etc. Is there a setting in preferences, I looked in L&F, Behaviour, Tweaks, and Misc

Thank you.

Doh

I turned them off years ago and forgot about it.

@BR: Preferences->Look & feel->Disable notifications from the system tray icon

It's a little confusingly named, as they historically used to depend on the tray icon, but they dont any more.

@Kovid - the settings shown below have been as you see them 'forever', unsurprisingly I have never seen any calibre O/S level notifications.

I just checked "Enable system tray icon (needs restart)", leaving the "Disable notifications in system tray" unchecked and did a conversion, and I got a notify messages when it started and another when it finished.

Then I checked "Disable notifications in system tray" and re-did the conversion, and I did NOT any notification messages.

Which suggests the Disable notifications setting is still dependent on the System Tray setting - on Windows 10 at least. Which is fine by me, because I don't want calibre in the tray, nor do I particular want the notify messages.

Oh yeah, I forgot about windows, where calibre still sues Qt to do notifications and Qt inturn needs the system tray icon.

If they were the same, then what would be the advantages of one vs another
