I'm trying to set up "User Categories" (aka collections) in the Grouping menu following FAQ #5. I have a custom metadata column in my Calibre library called "category" and I want to use this for grouping. However I can't seem to get it to work.

What I've done so far is go into Preferences->Plugins->Smart Device Plugin and choose customise plugin. I then enter category in the box at the bottom. "Comma separated list of metadata fields to turn into collections...". I then apply the changes, stop and start the wireless device from the calibre end and re-connect on CC. But when I choose Group and user categories I get no entries.

I've tried deleting and re-adding books. I've tried different variations of what to put in that plugin configuration - "category", "{category}" and "{#category}". Nothing so far has worked.

I feel like I must be missing something - can anyone help?

(Calibre version 0.8.65 running on Linux, CC version 1.6.1 running on Nexus 7 on Jelly Bean.)
