Generic "Sending to Device" template not kicking in on Folder Device

According to the configuration dialog, it says "Here you can control how calibre will save your books when you click the Send to Device button. This setting can be overriden for individual devices by customizing the device interface plugins in Preferences->Advanced->Plugins"

So I took this to mean that if I don't specify anything on the device specific plugin, it would use the template specified in "Sending books to devices".

At least for the folder device this does not work. You actually do need to specify the template in the folder device plugin or it simply will not work as intended. I did get the name elements I wanted but it did not create the folders, instead it replaced the forward slash with an underscore, creating all files in the single folder.

Only after copy/pasting the exact same template in the "Configure this device" dialog did the folders get created according to the template.

No worries, I got it working at least and that is the main thing. But aside from this, the question might be if it is really needed to have the generic template trigger. I can imagine that different devices may have different target requirements so this could potentially lead to books ending up in the wrong place if a device driver pulls the generic template and this creating a format different from what the device expects. Or am I seeing this wrong?

EDIT: Hmm. It seems I am not entirely correct, the folder device configuration also has a checkbox to use subdirectories or not... removing the template here and just leaving the checkbox ticked also uses the generic template format creating the folder structure as specified
