Embed Metadata - Question, Suggestion and Error

Kovid, thank you very much for adding the GUI option to Embed Metadata!!

A few of things about that:

- Question: Does that option also update the cover?

- Could this be integrated with "Polish Books"? (I know that the other options in polish books only work on Epub and AZW3)

- When embedding metadata in a lot of books, I got the following error message:

Code:
calibre, version 1.45.0
ERROR: Unhandled exception: <b>UnicodeDecodeError</b>:'utf8' codec can't decode byte 0x87 in position 443: invalid start byte

calibre 1.45 [64bit]  isfrozen: True is64bit: True
Windows-8-6.2.9200 Windows ('64bit', 'WindowsPE')
('Windows', '8', '6.2.9200')
Python 2.7.5
Windows: ('8', '6.2.9200', '', 'Multiprocessor Free')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\actions\embed.py", line 98, in do_one
UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf8' codec can't decode byte 0x87 in position 443: invalid start byte
There was no indication in which book the problem occurred. After trying out again in small batches, I found the 2 responsible books. They both had a file in Topaz format, but with the ending .azw. Other Topaz books with the ending .tpz did not give any error message.

I am not sure if calibre can do any updates to Topaz format books? It looks like when the topaz book has the ending azw, it is incorrectly identified as a different format?

If a metadata update for these books is not possible, that's fine. But could you make a change so the error message tells me which file is the problem (as Embed Metadata does for other errors)? Thank you!

The metadata update works exactly like updating metadata when you click send to device, save to disk, etc.

Polish Books is only ever going to work on EPUB/AZW3.

Open a bug report and attach the file causing the error message.
