Aha. Thanks.

However, unless you are using some of the special collections features such as sorting or renaming, you probably want to enter #collections in the "custom categories" dialog in calibre companion.
I assume you mean "#category" which I just tried and it works. I had tried this feature but with other metadata columns and it didn't appear to work.

This gives you a sortable collection on all the data in the column.
OK just to clarify because you used the word "sortable", I can now group on my category column but I can't sort on it. I can only sort on title, author or series. I mean grouping implies sorting but I can't just sort without grouping. Not that I would necessarily want to but just checking I understand correctly.

Also, when I group (by whatever column) it combines the groups alphabetically. I don't have a long list of categories so I'd prefer just the single level of grouping - is that possible?
