I'm pretty sure that if you use the archive option, it won't remove it from the other device. In that case, the details of the book are kept on the device, but not the actual file. The book lists have a filter to hide the archived books.

If you want to sort books in library on your Kobo Reader touch above colume of covers "by Title" then pop up list has Recently Read, Title, Author,..... I use Kobo store and desk top app so little don't much about it but author search worked for me.

If that was for me, I know that, but thanks. I want it to default to sorting by author in all of the shelves so I don't have to change it for each shelf. Just like the real ereaders will do

I've had two Aura HD's (brown) this week, both were returned because of a bright pinprick almost slap bang in the middle of the screen. I should get the second replacement on Monday or Tuesday. I've asked the store if it was possible for them to check it but they're not allowed to break the seal of new product so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

If this third unit also has pinpricks I'll see if I can get it exchanged for a black one, I assume the black one sells quicker than the brown one and with the theory that newer units have less defects I might get lucky with a black one.

Now with the exception of my currently read book, the tiles have taken on a life of their own. Mildly amusing when I remember to use my Aura HD and actually look at the home page.

You have had some truly weird behavior on your AuraHD.

My shelves will stay sorted by author if that is what I choose. For example, if I choose shelf A to be sorted by author, shelf B sorted by recently read, and library sorted by file type, they each remain that way until I choose to change the sort for the individual shelf or for the library. Changing the setting in one does not effect another.

Yes that is how my shelves work as well. I want all the shelves sorted the same way, which is by author. I don't want to have to change several hundred shelves a shelf at a time. What a wuss eh. That way all of my books would be sorted by series as well. There are other ways to accomplish this, and I will no doubt do it another way one of these days.

The moving and disappearing tile thing happened after I was trying to change the sort order in the config file. I don't think the currently reading shelf has ever moved, but everything else moves around randomly and some are just gone. Obviously I could fix this if I actually cared

More like I just don't care anymore Obviously I still care a little, but not like I used to. Less depressing and I can use the energy I used to spend raging at Kobo far more productively raging at Revenue Canada

That's right. Most of my ebooks from Kobo are archived when I know I won't read them soon and I don't have the same ebooks on the Aura HD and the Mini (some are archived, some are actually on the ereader).
I'll try soon to delete one and sync afterwards. I'll let you know if the book is deleted automatically from the second ereader, but somehow I doubt it.

What did you do in the file? If you remove all the lines starting with "LastLibrarySorter_shelf_filterByBookshelf", they should all go back to the default sorting. But, I don't remember what that is. Or, putting "sortByTitle()" as the value for all of them, will set them to sort by title. "LastShelfSorter_books_" looks like it should hold the default sort, or the last sort used, but it doesn't seem to.

An alternative is to use the "Order series shelf" option I added to my utilities plugin last week. But, that needs the shelves sorted by date added. Updating the conf file is probably something I should add.

The default is by title. I wanted to sort by author. I remember changing all of the sortByTitle() to sortByAuthor or whatever it had in the config file for the shelves I had changed.

Unfortunately I had a hard drive failure so the files (I saved a copy of each one as I went along) are no longer available. Maybe I will dust of the Aura tomorrow and take a look.

I will probably try the Order series option as well, just haven't really bothered as I rarely use it.

Whatever I did, didn't really seem to hurt anything, just made the main screen slightly more random which amused me for a bit.

Thanks for the suggestions

I'd like to know what are differences. I tried archiving option and it seemed to work nicely. I keep all my books on touch and delete only library books so I had no clue what now. If I sideload ADE books (bought at kobo), will they be synced or ignored?

No sideloaded content is synced (be it ADE epubs or calibre created kepubs). Only kepubs direct from Kobo are synced.

I knew that. But, I lost it while I was testing during the post.

I just a had a look at adding the sort to the config file and hot a little problem with how the data is stored. I can't duplicate the encoding used if there are non-ascii characters in the shelf name.

I'm curious about what you did. From memory, there isn't much in the config file that affects the home screen. The displayed tiles come from the database.

Kobo threads always make me hungry because everybody keeps talking about kebabs. kepubs. kebabs. Too bad I decided on the PW2 in the end. No kebabs for me.
