After converting ebook files, the author's name is always after the book title. I want to be able to place the author's name before the book's title.

Also, in a series situation, I want to be able to place 01, 02, etc. before the book title. Yes I could use Name Mangler, but there has to be a way for Calibre to do this automagically.

I looked into templates (if that's what I have to work with), but have no idea what the instructions are talking about.


Please help.

Thanks!
Templates:
the stuff inside a { } pair refers to the field (column) in the Library
just chain them in the order you want. You can also include any OS legal text between fields: {title} by {authors} (note : is not legal in a file name)
The exception is {series} just the name, and {Series_index} just the number

Template are only to be used to save books saved OUTSIDE the Library
