You're Welcome. I'm always stumbling over something I never paid attention to.

The other two icons down there show and hide the Tag Browser and the Book Details area.

Lots of good "hidden" features.

Now just looking for the "missing" feature of .docx conversion...that would be nice to have in a future update, it would be nice doing all my ebook work in calibre.

This should work for this use.

Set the regex to
Code:
(?P<title>.+) (?P<author>.+ .+)
Hope that works for you.

Edit: This will only work for authors with two names, not ones with three, such as Dr. or Jnr. etc.

Thank you for the code!

I just finished manually adding all my docx files to calibre, but I tested your regex suggestion, and it appears to work perfectly! I'll definitely use that in the future whenever I'm bringing more docx files into calibre. Thanks a lot for your help!
