Note orphan windows have been seen by me in other places on Calibre running on XP so this might not be a PI fault. Just reporting
I'm not sure what you mean. Is it leaving the dialog open when you press the "Finish" button on the third page? If so, I am not seeing it under Win7.

Yes, It leaves the dialog open (or some subset), you can move the frame, but not interact otherwise and it stays in the foreground. This has also happened with the Edit Metadata form. Quitting Calibre and the form then closes about 10 seconds later. This is only on my XP running on a P4.

I have tested the webpage mode, calibre 1.205 against the Baen Free Library no problems. Using Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon 2.2.16 Beta, on my test system. No orphan windows.

Good to hear the reports. It does sound like it is an XP problem. The only XP machine I have around is the one connected to a TV screen showing our network status. I don't think the boss would appreciate me running calibre on it. But, if he decides to go to the pub...

@davidfor - reran the last 7 days CSV lists (~ 60 CSV's) against Win portable version 1.205 they all worked fine.

It'll be a few days before I can do the other tests.

Love the plugin, it's so useful for importing Awards and other lists.

A question, sorry if it's been anwered before: is it possible to match a list item to multiple items in the Calibre database? There's the "Append this book as new item" button, but I can't figure out how it works.

Also, there'd be a few other features I think would be useful, is it OK to ask for features, in general? I know I couldn't code these features myself, but I think I could describe quite exactly how they could work and what the benefit would be.

I'm pretty sure you can't. I don't think it would make sense. It would mean updating multiple books in the library with the same metadata. At that point, they become the same book.

I can see what happens in the dialog, but I can't see what the point is or what happens when the finish button is pressed.

You can suggest away. Unfortunately, kiwidude is not doing much plugin development due to work and other things. But, recording a suggestion will be good in case he does return or if someone else is interested. Or, if you want to try your hand at Python and plugin development, you can add the function yourself.

Hmmm, I didn't notice the plugin is able to update metadata itself, I'm using it to create lists (which are probably metadata as well, but not in the "author/title/series"-sense). My use case is that I've got a multi-language library with many titles in two or more languages, and I'm trying to match award lists (like for example winners and nominees for the "Nebula" award) to books in my list. After the list has been created I'm doing the tagging manually.

Ah, so it's not only me, thanks (; .

I've had a look at the code of a few plugins, but that stuff is still way over my head. I'd like to give it more tries, but that'll take some time.

hi,

I'm using your plugin metadata to improve my books having to support a csv.

It works great and I thank you for your work.

I encounter the following problem:

.- In search does not use the letter "ñ", typical of the Spanish language.
.- In search does not use the sign "¡" (Opening sign of admiration), typical of Spanish language.

Is a limitation ?, could be solved?


a greeting
