View Full Version : Does iBooks and ADE respect opf:file-as ?

Hi !

Im trying to understand how ADE and iBooks file the ePubs, when sorting by last names.

It seems they file the epub using dc:creator in the .opf file, and not using the opf:file-as attribute.
For exemple :
<dc:creator opf:file-as="Smith, James F.">James F. Smith</dc:creator>.

When you choose name sorting in ADE or iBooks, then this ePub is filed at J and not at S

Am I doing something wrong, or is this feature still to be implemented ?

Most eBook Readers sort externally to ADE since they usually have multiple file types so it is hard to generalize the behavior. But if ADE on a PC works as you have described then that it only really applicable to that one application.
