I want all Kindle type ebooks and Epub ebooks to use only Calibre (don't want to read with Kindle or Sigil...Calibre has it's own reader...prefer using that.) I figured just remove the semi-colons in each line and Save. However, when opening a .azw3 book, it gives error that there is no reader for it. I'm confused.
I guess you are talking about "Set reader apps" button in "Expert options" tab. It should be used only if you have to override your system defaults for the desired file type. If it doesn't work for you, can you show your readers.txt file contents?

I think we will add the custom column for the file type, thank you for the suggestion. In the current version, you can add displaying of the file type by editing the HTML template you are using.
Special <!--#filetype --> tag will be replaced with the file type.
For example, to add displaying file type to the Standard template, you have to open "C:\Program Files (x86)\AllMyBooks\bookcards\Standard\template.html" in the text editor like Notepad while logged in as Administrator, locate the string
Code: Select all
<br><!--#filesize_lbl -->: <b><!--#filesize --> </b>
and add the following string after it
Code: Select all
<br><!--#filetype_lbl -->: <b><!--#filetype --> </b>
