If what I've provided isn't enough, click on Calibre's Help menu. Your default browser will open and you'll be taken to the Calibre manual page, where you can dig into the details (and there are many).
In the meantime, I welcome comments from experienced Calibre users who can recommend sleeker workflows. And if you know of a different tool that makes cleaning ebooks easier, I'm all ears.
