Thanks for creating and revising AKC.

Ok, I like the concept and the simplicity of AKC but I'm a bit frustrated at the moment.

If I use a variation of the basic send to disk template, {author_sort}/_{series}/{title} - {authors} , then I have no problems. And, I would stop here, but I have 3000+ files that I would like to subdivide into more than just author, series collections.

But, if I try to add user generated columns, I run into problems.

for example, I first tried a column, science_fiction_fantasy, that was broken into SFF_Fant, SFF_SciFi, SFF_UFant (comma separated text, ... shown in tag browser)

using this template, {author_sort}/{#science_fiction_fantasy}/_{series}/{title} - {authors}, resulted in following type of file

x:\documents\Jim Butcher\#science_fiction_fantasy\Dresden Files\Storm Front.mobi

All that calibre apparently "sees" is the heading, not the data within the column.

I then tried just creating a yes/no column entitled SFF. That template, {author_sort}/{#SFF}/_{series}/{title} - {authors}, resulted in following type of file

x:\documents\Jim Butcher\yes\Dresden Files\Storm Front.mobi and "yes" and "no" collections.

My ultimate goal is a collection called "SFF" but I'm not there yet.

Any thoughts? Am I choosing the inappropriate column data format?

I'm doing all this on my old Kindle DX-2 running 2.5.6 since it has far fewer files than my everyday K3.

Thanks for any help.
