Lookup Name = isbn
Column Heading = ISBN
Column Type = Column built from other columns
Template = {isbn}

Note that the Template fields only gets shown when selecting the correct column type.

I just tried this but when I click "OK" to create the column I get an error message:
calibre, version 0.7.46
ERROR: Unhandled exception: <b>AttributeError</b>:'QString' object has no attribute 'strip'

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\preferences\create_custom_co lumn.py", line 161, in accept
AttributeError: 'QString' object has no attribute 'strip'
I probably overlooked something really obvious but I can't see what :P

As for why I want the ISBN column, it's to check which titles are missing an ISBN before I import my library to LibraryThing.
I guess I'll use isbn:false in the search bar thingy instead, but I don't like to leave errors unaddressed.
