Send and Delete From Library

My 'Search-fu' is failing me and returning threads with 800+ pages in them, so I figured I'd ask this as a new thread.

A minor recommendation:

Spacing the menu options that will delete things further away from those that don't delete things.


Yesterday, after upgrading Calibre (twice, to 0.7.26, as the new update came out an hour after I updated it!) I was working with a block of files.

I was tweaking the EPUB versions (wonderful feature, BTW - I know they're zips, but this feature makes handling them a breeze) and bulk transferring LRF versions over to my Sony PRS-505.

Then I noticed my library had shrunk.

It seems that it's really easy to mistake the 'Send and Delete from Library' menu option for the 'Send Specific Format To' menu option.

Before I'd realized that I hadn't been prompted for a format to send, it had bulk-nuked my selections.

I do not recall if it ever prompted me to confirm my selection. If it did, I probably confused it for the format prompt... I'll have to create a test file to kill and find out if it prompts for confirmation.

[ I just tested it on a transient file: that option does not seem to prompt for confirmation, it goes ahead and transfers and deletes. ]

Undeleting the directories was trivial, but then I ran into the 'rebuild the database' problem (BTW, I liked that '-really-do-it' switch), which failed on a few of them, requiring me to re-import them after all, which I was hoping to avoid.

Basically, I was wondering if you could re-arrange the sub menu to keep delete options a little further away from the non-delete versions.

Maybe add a 'Confirm Delete' dialog, too.

While you are re-arranging

Could we have a tweak that woulds disable the ability to ruin a title by accidentally editing the record title in library view.

(The author of Forte' Agent newsreader, called it his "Mom" switch as she seemed to frequently invoke (unintentionally) keyboard shortcuts.)

Or a optional Nag: "Are you sure".

Once "Enter" is struck

Wait, send and delete removes the book from your calibre library?
