Is there any way of this plugin removing the Series data from the titles whilst swapping to Series column?

e.g.

A Series (03) - The Title

becomes

The Title / A Series / 03

either, all happening automagically or happening once I have told it that this is "A Series" and it number 3 :-)

No, that sort of functionality is normally handled by using the Search/Replace screen of bulk metadata edit which allows you to strip stuff out of the title (for instance) and stuff it into other fields.

Yeah I know :-( but it means I use your excellent plugin to manage the series data then search and replace to delete the series title, then STILL have to manually edit each entry to remove the numbers........

There are way too many permutations and possibilities to try to cater for it in this plugin (there is no guarantee the series name you chose matches that embedded in the title, let alone all the different ways it might be formatted in the title). That's why it is all regex based in the search/replace screen.

Your best bet is to not put the series data in the title in the first place

Can anyone point me to the regex for "and X characters" so I could Find

The-Series-Name (and X characters) and Replace with Blank to get rid of

The Series Name [02] -

But unless you have the cover image, you'll then need to go get a cover image or extract it from the eBook or you won't have a proper image.

Once it has been dropped (and saved by moving off the record, then back), you can click the new format and then click the 'book' icon and it will extract the cover within

Will that work even if all you are doing is updating the format you already have say ePub > ePub with a copy that has a new cover image?

There are NO tests. You can drop ANY EPUB in place of the existing one... Even the Wrong one

v1.2.5 Released

Changes in this release:
  • Rename "Sort by Original Series" to "Sort by Original Series Index"
  • Add a "Sort by Original Series Name" feature for users who are appending series together that overlap indexes

I try to join lots of series into one new big one. After selecting all books (CTRL+A) the Plugin lists the books in the following order:

series1 index 1
series2 index 1
series3 index 1
...
series1 index 2
series2 index 2
series3 index 2
...

But I'd like to have them one series after the other:

series1 index 1
series1 index 2
...
series2 index 1
series2 index 2
...
series3 index 1
series3 index2
...

The Plugin offers the possibility to manually move books up and down, but with more than 2.500 books this isn't really an option. If I could order the books alphabetically I'd be there, because the titles from the 1st to the last series are in alphabetical order, but I don't see this possibility in the Plugin. There is only a 'Sort by Original Series', but after marking all books and clicking on it in the conext menu nothing happens.

Does anyone has an idea how I can solve this?

Best regards

Wow! 'Sort by 'Original Series Names' worked like a charm, just moved 2655 books into a new series within 2 minutes or so!

Two remarks:

1. I got a RuntimeError ('maximum recursion depth exceeded') as soon as I selected more than 12 series. I think it's some issue within Calibre, because your Plugin was not yet in play. So I did it in two steps: First joined 12 series at a time, then joined the 12-series into the final one.

2. As I noticed the new series name is preset by the Plugin to the name of the 1st series selected. On one join, I missed to give a new name to the new series, the old series got overridden. That might cause problems, so I think it's better to leave the new series name field empty thus forcing the user to explicitely give a name to the new series.

Best regards
