Great to hear. You don't actually need to have the collections.json file already existing to use the plugin - but its worth being sure you don't delete anything you might need.

Tried it and it didn't help. I still ended up with Tags that I don't have in my tags list. Lots of them. It is interesting. Oh well.

In the plugin configuration menu, the only thing selected is the tags? Can you post a copy of your log file of the collections that are created?

You need to put a "\" before the "[" and the "]" since the brackets are special regex pattern characters, so use "\[.*\]".

I've updated the examples, added a note on patterns, and a tooltip in the GUI about it. Patterns can be confusing - but to get their benefit also means some confusion.
Actually, I tried that and it still didn't work (forgot to add that to the original post). I tried it with quotes, without quotes, with backslashes, without them. I don't think it's escaping the brackets correctly.

Can you post the top part of the collection report - before the books are shown.

Wow, this plugin is wonderful! After trying separate softwares which were so buggy, it's fantastic to have a plugin like this and use only Calibre for everything!
Thanks for creating it, I'm really happy how it works!

Hmmm. Can you run it in debug mode? (easiest way is to use the gui method mentioned in the first post so it displays the file after you exit calibre).

Then you should be able to scan the output from the top to see which book is causing a problem.

Can you post the error messages again, in case the line numbers changed/etc. It would be interesting to have the last book processed as well if its not an issue with you.

Yes All that is selected on the configuration menu is tags.

I only use 23 different Tags in Calibre. . . So I must need to change some settings but I don't know where and what.

Is this what you wanted. . .



============ Create Kindle Collections Preview Report ============

Never delete or overwrite Kindle collections matching these patterns:


Preserve existing Kindle collections not updated by Calibre:
True

Ignore prefix when checking if Kindle and Calibre collections are the same:
True

Ignore case when pattern matching:
True

Include Calibre columns:

tags
Prefix: -
Minimum: 2
Ignore:
Include:

Preview of creating collections on the Kindle (no collections updated during preview run):

Well, it looks like you have a mix of Calibre collections using tags, and items on the Kindle, so it seems to be working as intended. You could use debug mode to see for each book why its creating a collection. If you don't want the Kindle collections, you can manually delete them, or uncheck Preserve Kindle only - but be sure you want this before doing it!

Yes it is working but what I would like to know is WHY it is making collections from tags that I don't even have or use. I will eventually figure it out.

It looks to work so well for everyone.

for all the help.

Some amazon books come with tags preloaded; is there a chance that the plugin is picking those up?

if you're in device library on calibre, highlight a book and do a right click (on a windows mouse) to get to the context menu, the option to add a book to library will be there. it may be worth checking to see if any of those unwanted tags came from that source.

when added to the main library, associated tags from amazon should show up as well in calibre's tag field.

I have an interesting situation that may or may not be related to what's happening with the previous poster.

I updated to the most recent version of the plugin. This was the first chance I've had to take the GUI for a spin (and it's SWEET!). I backed up my collections, fired up calibre and looked it over. I realized that the simplest way to preserve the collection my games were in was to take out any calibre managed content and remove that tag from calibre so it would be a "Kindle only" collection.

So, I made the changes. As a result, I no longer had an "Active Content" tag in calibre, hence, no more "Active Content" collection managed by calibre, right? Wrong. Even though I pushed the new metadata by removing and re-adding a book to the Kindle (and checking the timestamp), the plugin overwrote the collection on the Kindle, kicking out my games. I thought, okay, maybe I need to get tough with it, so I moved my games to a "Games" collection, then deleted the "Active Content" collection and moved the remainder files in with the games for the sake of the exercise (the other two files were my clippings.txt and that Books of the Web thing. Note: BOTH of these items had not only been untagged in calibre, they were DELETED from calibre and existed only on the device.

For extra measure, I ejected the Kindle, restarted calibre and reconnected the Kindle, checked to make sure the new metadata file was pushed (it was, time stamp was that minute), ran a "preview" with the plugin. Same results. An "Active Content" collection was (re)created, and those two files were put in it, even though they were no longer even in my calibre library.

Somehow, somewhere, the metadata isn't getting fully updated or something. Even after much fiddling (including putting three new books into calibre and transferring those to the Kindle) it still thinks that I have those two files in calibre and the metadata that was attached to them. I finally gave up and simply deleted the (now redundant) collection from the Kindle.

Every other thing is 100% correct. New books added went into the correct collections, my other Kindle-only collections were untouched. I didn't save the text file, unfortunately, but I will try to recreate it tomorrow, though I don't think it will show anything that I haven't already covered.

The reason I think it could be related to the previous poster is because of the extra tags - they may no longer be in their library because they cleaned them up after import, but it seems possible they may be in the metadata file getting pushed to the Kindle since I've got at least one tag and two files that won't surrender and die.

This is seemingly an issue with that metadata file, not the plugin, and tomorrow if I don't have a headache I will crack open that file and look for the culprits. Perhaps a little library maintenance will fix the problem. I will report back with the results, as it may help someone else who has "mystery collections" popping up.
