saving-to-disc feature changes my titles ?

Hello,

I use calibre 0.7.29 on windows and since several versions of calibre, when I save to my local disk my collection of pdfs, calibre automatically put the ''The'' or the ''A'' begining a title to the end of the title

I use the pattern
{authors}_-_{title}_[{publisher}_{pubdate}_{isbn}]

for instance,

if the title in calibre is
''The english language''

the file saved to disk will be
author_-_english_language,_the_[publisher_pubdate_isbn]

It is tremendously annoying and I recall it didn't do that on the early verisons around 0.7 and before

PS:
By the way, it would be convenient to get an option to use only the first author of a book, bsides authors, which is too long, and author sort which too rigid.

ALso a portable edition would be awesome

Copy the library order tweak for saving to disk from Preferences - Tweak All available tweaks section to the Current tweaks section (top to the bottom, see attached). Then change library_order to strictly_alphabetic.

Right click on authors in the tag browser section on the left and select Manage Authors and enter whatever you want for Author and Author sort.
