question on custom column & feedback

Help please.

"You can create collections based on your custom columns if they contain just a single word or number or a list of words like the tags column:"

I've tried adding my custom column genre as a 4th line in tweaks, but the tweak app keeps telling me invalid when I add it, no problems until that line is added.

tweak looks like this:

################################################
# Create Kindle Collections Plugin tweaks
#
# Calibre column names to include in collections, text to prepend for sorting, and
# minimum number of books needed for a column before creating a collection
create_kindle_collections_usecolumns = {
"tags": [ "- ", 1 ],
"series": [ "_ ", 2 ],
"authors": [ "", 1 ]
"genre": [ "__ ", 1 ]
}
# Collection names or patterns to ignore (e.g. [ "ignorethis", ".*Ignore.*" ]
create_kindle_collections_ignore = [ ]
################################################## ##

genre is a user-created custom column, setup is text, like tag column. I've tried the look-up name with & without the # - genre,#genre. get an invalid tweak. also tried a different custom column, read_status, same result in tweak.

using calibre 7.43

fyi, all but apps & a handful of Baen books (looks like they just need their mobi format file updated from the error message) went into collections - best results I've had with any kindle collection manager so far (have about 3500 files on the k3). I love the simplicity of this app & that fact that I can use it as I work with calibre.

Thanks!
