Comment 4 for bug 1006650

John,

That is a great trick, I might see if I can set up something like that. At
the moment I am using Firefox - let me see if I can find a way to move them
to a specific folder.

Once they are uploaded to Calibre do you know if I need to keep the
originals or has it made a copy of the files?
