Booklover, I understood exactly what you meant. Mark obviously lost what you meant in the translation. She meant that no book on her reader is in a collection other than what she wants it in and she organizes it thusly through Calibre not the device.
Unfortunately you are wrong - there is NO way of changing it.
I am not talking about collections I am talking of physical folders on my hard drive, and I quote -
The short and sweet answer:
You can't change the library's folder structure. You shouldn't even be in there.
Sorry but that's not good enough. I want the folder structure of my library organised the way I want it and not the way that the developer of Calibre decided it should be.
I also quote -
The reason calibre copies all those ebooks over into its own set of folders is so that it can have exclusive access to them, and so it can know exactly what they are, where they are, and what they're named. Think of it as a black box, one with a big warning label stating "NO USER SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE!" Or maybe a storage room with a locked door with a sign on it saying "PRIVATE - Calibre Only".
What?? In what universe do the developers think that they have exclusive access to MY
material stored on MY
machine - that is just plain arrogant.
I am perfectly capable of knowing what they are, where they are and what they are called - is not "My Documents\Library\Biographies\Rob Brydon - Small Man in a Book.epub" clear enough? It is for me.
And for that reason in my opinion Calibre sucks.
