Kindle Fire HD Collections

Hi,

sorry if this has been asked before - I'm looking forward to getting a Fire HD on Christmas morning - I've been a lover of a Kindle 3 since they came out.

I'm also a huge fan of the Cllections Plug-In which is really useful to me.

I'm getting a sense that managing collections on the Fire HD isn't going to be easy as the plug-in can't do it automatically for me, is that right?

In that case, is there a way to import my collection data from the Kindle 3 to the Fire? I'm not getting rid of the 3, so I wondered if I kept a mirror of the collections on there, managed them there, and then simply transferred the data to the Fire, would it work?

Or am I being Mad? :-)

Many thanks in anticiaption of a reply.

Cheers

Paul

@NiLuJe :
I have searched this thread for about an hour, but am not able to find the answer to this.

What do I do with the kcoll_pw_tweaks-v31.patch file? I have tried putting it on the kindle, and also updating the plugin in calibre, but I can't seem to find out how to install/patch/update using that file.

Any suggestions?

Im sure it is pretty dumb/obvious solution, so I apologize. But thank you much.

@current_user: Nothing. It's a diff, for the devs. Just install the .zip as any other Calibre plugin.

I think I am doing something wrong, but not sure which step in my pathway is causing the issue.

My setup: Mac OS X with Calibre (0.9.7) with Kindle Collections GUI plugin used with KPW 5.3.1 (JB with screensavers and collections manager hacks installed).

Originally, I added all my books and used the kindle collections gui plugin to save my collections info on my KPW. I then imported my collections from calibre in the CM hack. Worked great, have all my collections and was able to hide those I don't want to show up and it looks awesome.

Problem is now I connect my KPW to calibre and send new books to the KPW followed by saving the collections to the KPW using the GUI plugin in calibre. I disconnect my KPW and then run into problems with the new books not being sorted into the pre-existing collections. I figured I just have to re-"import calibre collections" from within CM, but this doesn't work. I have tried to restart before and after re-importing with no difference - the new books don't sort into collections and just sit on the home page with the heading of "new".

Sorry if there is an easy answer to this. I am not sure if this is an issue with my GUI kindle collections plugin or my collections manager hack on my KPW. I couldn't figure it out when I looked through this thread or the collections manager thread in the kindle developer forum. I tried asking in that thread, but did not get any responses.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Collections on Kindle Paperwhite?

Hi!

I've been playing with Calibre, and spent last night getting all my book tags updated, what an awesome program!!

I have the Kindle Collections add on installed, and have created my collections (using 'series' as the collection item). I show them in Calibre, but when I tell them to upload to the Kindle and reboot, they don't show up on the Kindle.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Vicky

Edit: I found a thread here http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...=192561&page=8 that addresses this. ::bonk:: Search before I post! Anyway, reconverting and uploading again with recommended settings from this thread.

Kindle Combining Names

Good evening.
It seems like my Kindle is combining the names of the collections and I have no idea why.
It basically looks like this
Spoiler:
calibre, version 0.9.11
Kindle Collections: <P>Preview report generated 9 collections.<P>


=== Kindle Collections 1.7.11 PREVIEW Report

Preview only - no collections have actually been modified on the Kindle.

Thanks.

Is this plugin compatible with the Paperwhite? My collections won't sync to my kpw.

Only if you jailbreak it.

I've jailbroken mine and while I can see the books on the Kindle Paperwhite (5.3.1, Jailbroken about an hour ago with the latest version, and with the screensaver hack installed and working) within Calibre, they appear to not be in a collection, even though they are already in collections on my Kindle.

Also, the settings (such as justification) don't work - and when I go into the system folder on my kindle, the com.amazon.ebook.booklet.reader folder doesn't exist. If I create it and the reader.pref file within it, the settings still don't make a different - no justification option appears.

It looks like these settings are just stored in a completely different spot in the Paperwhite?

can I move books from one collection to another?

strange situation
view report of Kindle collections and books works
calibre, version 0.9.12
Kindle Collections:
46 collections, 1729 books, 3 magazines, 1 news feed found on the Kindle.<P>
=== Kindle Collections 1.7.11 View Collections Report

But import kindle collections (I added custom column named collections) appears to have done nothing

Show books in device shows the 1734 books but only 4 show an associated collection. However all books are in a collection!

What I really need to do is move (not copy) books from one collection to another. Is that possible?

Hi,
I have a kindle 4nt black(non jailbreaked) and I'm trying ,without success, to modify the font,
I created the font folder and put the fonts inside,
I double checked the names but all I get when I try to change the fonts is the message: "at least one custom fonts is missing a file in the Kindle fonts directory etc",

BUT

the files are there , as you can see from the attachments

What do I have to do ?

Ok I solved the problem,I had to remove the .ttf from the names of the files,
these were .ttf file and probably to put .ttf in the name is wrong,
now it works
thanks

I've now exhausted my personal attempts to solve this problem, so I'm coming here to the board. I've been using Kindle Collections for quite a long while now. Every so often, I add a couple of books, regenerate the collections, and move on quickly.

Not very long ago, I added a couple of new books for Christmas, and when I regenerated my collections, I lost all of the ones based on series. After exploring a bit, I've determined this is at least in part because my metadata plugboard seems to have stopped working. I did not change it at all, but I did upgrade two versions (once just before the problem started, and once since in hopes it would solve the issue).

I've removed and re-added the plugboards, removed and re-added books, and when I do, they no longer have the series in front (as the plugboard is set up to do). I've also tried removing all the Calibre created files in the root of the Kindle, to see if they were somehow to blame. Is this a problem with the new version of Calibre, something corrupt on my Kindle, or what? I really don't want to go without the series information on my books. And if it's the version, how do I step back to an earlier functioning version?

NiLuJe,
sorry to bother but can you help me too?

I've installed your plugin (the zip file) in calibre and generated the column as you explained but I cannot import my Kindle collections.

see also here:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...&postcount=334

Thanks in advance for your help,
Mf

EDIT:
I was able to import the collections from Kindle and now in my nice custom column I have the names comma separated: Col A, Col B

I've edited the books to add the correct collections to them, my issue is now how I do export them to the kindle?

Hello, I installed and ran on my Kindle, but I am having problems. It's only moving part of the collection assignments when run on my Kindle and after restart.

For example, today I assigned 18 books to go into Nonfiction collection, and after using it on my Kindle and restarting, I found only 13 got moved into that collection. The rest are still out in the home pages of the Kindle.

Is there something I am doing wrong? It only moved about 2/3 of sample books I tagged to my New Samples collection too. Any ideas off the bat?

I imported the existing collections into Calibre from the Kindle, using the custom column instructions. If it wasn't working at all, I don't think it would move any books into any collections, so it seems to be installed correctly, and I used the Imported Kindle Collection column, and the drop down list to assign the Collection names. I did them all the same way, but not all are moved. I'm not sure what is going on. Could anyone help?

Thanks,
Gina
