Automating Tasks in Calibre

Hi

I have seen in other threads people asking if it is possible to automate repetetive tasks in Calibre. I will also admit to being one of them.

I did a few desultory searches for Windows macro creators but did not find anything that really looked as though it would do the job.

As an automating Calibre thread came up again a few days ago I did another search and found a freeware program that impressed me and will do the job.

It is called "Pulovers Macro Creator".

I have had a little play with it and found picking up the basics not too bad. There are tutorials, walkthroughs and set of video turorials online.

I will let you know how I get on with it

Yes, please let me know your experience with that.

As I wrote in the other thread I am interested to run automated for a group of books:
- four prepared search-and-replace
- convert (all settings are done in the dialog, so only run)
- plugin count page
- plugin generate cover (values are set as default)
- plugin count authors

Of course there would be still manual work like setting my own tags and some other values as they are book depending.

So please let me know if you found something helpfull in this regards.

The program will certainly do the job but like many powerful programs (r.g. Calibre) it has a lot of options and commands which have to be learnt.

The first part of the automation I want means opening the Calibre editor automatically (for a book specified in Calibre Library view), using the icon bar to run certain operations and deal with the Report screens produced, wait while I deal with errors in the epub the editor has found after which it should save the epub and exit editor and start on part 2.

I am making progress though and have got about half of part one done. The thing that is slowing me down is that I am having to learn bow to use the program at the same time.

All good fun
