jailbroken - now what (how do i use the collections manager?)

With fear and trembling, I installed the jailbreak on my paperwhite, and added the other items to be able to use the Collections Manager - and now I truly can't figure out how to use it.

There are two parts to this.

I would like to just have the PW display the list of collections and items not in any collection - what it currently does is show the collection I created (using the Kindle's collection system, not Collections Manager), plus all the books whether they're in a collection or not. This is not useful to me. On my k3, I could list the collections first, and then the not collected books. Can I do this on the Paperwhite?

Next, is there a way to use the Collections Manager in keeping with Calibre, so I can create collections automatically based on tags like I could with the k3? I thought that was what the Collections Manager would do - do I need a separate plugin other than the Kindle Collections Manager for Calibre? and if so, where do I get it?

in other words, is there a text-based how to use ixtab's collection manager?

I'm sorry if I'm asking for hand-holding, but I truly can't figure this out.

Thanks.
