@lazorbeam - the author of this PI is no longer active, so the chances of getting any enhancements are pretty slim.

However you can do some of what you want using your file manager.

In main GUI program (library manager) go to Preferences->Miscellaneous and click the Open configuration directory button, the generate cover PI images are in the ...\resources\images\generate_cover sub-directory.

Close calibre before you add, rename, or delete any images in that folder.

When you restart calibre and run Generate Cover the changes you made will be there.

@BetterRed

Thanks for this info. I never thought to look in the config directory for those files. I did successfully find them and followed your instructions. When I restarted Calibre and checked the files within Generate Cover, the images I had re-named or deleted did disappear but I don't see the updated files.

I then dragged those files in and got a message that this file already exists and do I want to overwrite it. Couldn't find the file though strangely.

Deleting this way is already a big help, but if you have thoughts on why renaming/adding didn't work, I welcome them. Thanks!

@lazorbeam - sorry, I only tested deleting a file, when I saw that worked I assumed adding and renaming would work - because I assumed the PI built the list from the directory when it runs - alas it doesn't. It keeps a list of them in its .json file in the plugins directory a'la:-

Code:
  "Files": [
    "Draghi's Dungeons.jpg", 
    "Bank Of England.jpg", 
    "Brunhilde_the_Valkyrie.jpg", 
    "Ekaterina Motyakina .jpg", 
    "Kris Swindle.jpg", 
    "Linen Cover 10.jpg", 
    "{Current Cover}", 
    "{Default Image}"
  ]
Note the double quotes and trailing comma's, they are essential.

Ah, I see. Thank you for investigating. That's all right - I'm very excited about the bulk delete options. Thanks for your expertise.

What would make this plugin amazingly better would be if it could be accessed from the edit book metadata panel... which I assume would be a change in calibre more than the plugin...

@compurandom - yes, it would almost certainly require a change in the calibre core, and I very much doubt Kovid would consider doing that as it would mean he'd have to accept responsibility for the PI. What he might consider are some modest enhancements to the built-in cover generator.

@oteksamptis - as I wrote a few posts back

Unless of course you are prepared to make the changes yourself, the code is in the zip. Many people have their own private versions of PI's that they've modified to suit their needs. You don't have to publish your changes in a new official version, especially if you're not prepared to take on support for the plugin.

I was thinking more along the lines of add to or replace the "generate cover" button in the edit window with the "generate cover" option from the plugin.

Although I use both of them for different things, so maybe replace isn't best.

Seems to work fine to me. FYI there is also a cover generation ability within the edit metadata window.

Yes, but it probably is not being developed. Too bad.

You are correct it is not being developed, but it has been maintained. As changes in calibre required plugins to adapt, other developers have stepped up to ensure that this plugin didn't die.
