Multiple Pdf versions in one book?

Hi

What is the best way to maintain multiple pdf versions of the same book? As far as I can tell Calibre only excepts one file per format. I personally would like to have multiple pdf versions like the actual pdf, optimized pdf(for ereaders), another version for another device etc.

Is this possible with Calibre?

thanks

You are correct in that Calibre only supports one file per format per book record. Therefore the only way to achieve this is to have multiple book records for each variant, or to store the multiple versions inside something like a RAR file on a particular record.

Another alternative is to rename the file to blahblah.pdf2 (and pdf3, pdf4 ...) and associate the pdfn extensions with your normal pdf reader, not sure how you could handle that on Kobo Glo

You will need Add the blahblah.pdfn to book blahblah via Add files to selected book records (shift/a) - you cant drag/drop 'foreign formats' into book details

You wont be able to convert the pdfn with calibre

Useful if your main motive is to have everything in one place.

In practice I'd suggest using a meaningful extension - eg pdf4kobo, pdf4nook etc
