Collections and Series Numbering Calibre Kindle

I've just used the kindle collections plugin on calibre and I'm pleased with the result, I used it to set the collections based on the series description set in the metadata using Calibre. However does anybody know how I can make the Kindle (3.1) pay attention to the series numbering rather than defaulting to an alphabetical sort in the collections view.

Cheers in advance

Better to post this in the Calibre forum than here, since it's really a Calibre feature, but the short answer is to use a Metadata Plugboard. Mine is:

{series}{series_index:0>2s| - | - }{title}

This makes the title on the Kindle start with the series name and number.

I use a similar scheme and, for my sanity's sake, I do the same for the saved filename.
