Nahgem , thanks for the post and suggestion. I couldn't find any explicit documentation either way on importing external pdf metadata , but I HAVE found some Mantano users who have the same problem that I have with Aldiko , i.e. that the metadata is taken from the PDF but NOT from Calibre (problem 1 below).
I THINK that the option you are referring to is (4) above. See my original post as to why I cant do it.
This problem has also been listed on various Mantano sites, also with no solution, so it would seem that Mantano and Aldiko have the same problem.
I am seriously doubting that ANY ereader can import external (*) metadata !!
Seems like a great opportunity for someone - especially with customers prepared to pay money !!
(*) i.e. External to the data.
