When I add an epub book, the fields are all nicely filled (author, title, tag, etc). But with PDF books it completely ignores my PDFInfo fields (which are nicely filled, at least, Author, Title and Subject are).
If it doesn't, is there a way for it to read the folder structure (by using the reg expression)? Because the filenames of my books only contain a series index (if applicable) and the title of the book. The author (and series, again if applicable) are folder names...
No and no. Calibre can only pick up metadata from inside the file or from the filename, not from external files (pdfinfo) or the folder names. The usual solutions for your case are to either send the metadata inside the pdf file or change the filename with a file rename utility to include your metadata/foldernames.
