Lightbulb Exporting Specific Formats

Good Morning!

I apologize if this is a duplicate post - I did try to search for it.

I am trying to export a specific format from my library - without deleting it from my library.

Is there a way to do this? I have searched high and low but I cannot seem to find an answer.

I'd like to pull my ePubs so I can zip and send to my sister who reads in iBooks.

Any suggestions or advice would be helpful! Thanks!!

Select all books, then right click the Save to disk button and choose Save single format to disk

I use Calibre every day and I didn't know about this feature. Thanks for asking the question, mellonsr.

Also, Kovid, you rock.

How can you avoid them separating into folders?

I'd like to use the Send To Kindle app to mass upload these. The Calibre built in is far to slow of a process.

Kindle app?

I plug in my K4 by USB cord and the books transfer at about 1 book every 2 seconds.
Similar performance using Calibre Companion (Android WiFi MODE) Wireless device connection on my Tab A.

Look at your A/V or firewall settings

If you have Preferences->Behaviour->Preferred output format: set to the format you want saved, and the books you select have that format, then you should be able to use the Save to disk->Save to single directory option.
