Create thumbnails from covers

I have a lot of books with front covers attached.
If I click on the 3D tab I can see the image in 3D.
However Alfa eBooks Manager didn't create the thumbnails.
I have to go to the cover tab and click on "Create thumb from the cover".

Is there a way to do this for all files automatically or editing multiple books at once?

Thanks.

jostie, please try to use Tools -> Resize thumbs

Yes!!
Thank you very much.
I resized thumbs at max size 200 and the thumbnails are visible :)

Oeps, I just did a compact DB and now there is no thumbnail and no cover in the DB. :(

I can't seem to get the Create Thumb From the Cover function to work.
I open the Book Card and select the Cover tab and although a file exists for the cover the Create Thumb From the Cover button seems dead and does nothing.
Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Plantagenet, I just checked - the function works
Please send us the image that can't be converted to thumb

Well, I'm having bigger problems than this with Alfa eBooks Manager at the moment (See the Topic AEM Not Saving Changes).
If I am able to resolve that problem then I will come back to this.
