I agree, it would still be good to make this official plug-in, regardless of this being a bug or not .
IMO even if it's only a problem in Mantano the checkbox is labelled "Convert . . . to plain text". In this context plain text means no frills, furbelows, or embellishments... surely?

However Mantano is not a alone, Tracker Software's PDF XChange doesn't interpret any HTML markup in the Description metadata - whether its put there via calibre (Embed Metadata or Conversion) or otherwise.

Pure laziness from my side. I don't know what I would have to do to make it official. I have another plugin I made only for this forum (it stores the file name when a book is added to calibre) which is in a limbo because of the same reason.

If you tell what I would have to do, I can try.

Basically, create a thread for the plugin in the Plugin forum. Then, if you want it in the list calibre will check, ask a mod to add it to the index. There are some basic instructions at the top of the index thread.

thanks david you beat me to it

@Terisa the PI Index thread has a pro-forma Index entry layout as an attachment

When you PM a mod include the location of the PI's thread, and what you want in the Index using that layout. The index is a bit of a PITA to maintain so having something one can simply copy & paste helps.

IIRC the Plugin Updater whizzbangery looks at the Index to pick up changes every hour on the half hour.

Yikes! Something broke the Pro-Forma attachment link in the Index thread
Here is a copy

And I totally agree with you BR. The maintenance is a bit unwieldy when inserting new items.

So why didn't you mend it?!

Try it now

If its OK I suggest you remove the one you just posted, in case we change it again.

[QUOTE=Milica Who;3351163]I discovered that the problem is in these xml tags.../QUOTE]

Hello Milica Who,
I am having a similar issue with Bookari (maybe the same if i understand correctly). I'm somewhat new to Calibre. I have installed the plugin found here and see that it does indeed remove all the formatting. However, i'm still not seeing my metadata changes reflected in Bookari. Would you happen to have any suggestions as to what i'm doing incorrectly? Is it possible Bookari is not refreshing to see the changes?, or maybe i'm just overlooking something simple (I hope!). I'm working with epub files.

Thanks, Tom

PS- I find that i can get Bookari to see the metadata changes, if i remove the book entirely and re-send it from Calibre. This i would rather not have to do as i would lose all my annotations.

Thank you Terisa de morgan! I had given up doing anything about the junk code in descriptions as something beyond me...this plugin is wondrous.
