Sorting collections while NOT on Kindle?

Is there a way to edit your collection titles NOT using the Kindle? I find it frustrating to have to edit the titles via the Kindle because it takes so many button clicks. My titles are basically sorted like this:

(Reading: current)
[Fiction]
[[ Historical Fiction ]]
[[[ Classics ]]]

{Non-Fiction}
{{ Religious }}
{{{ Political }}}
{{{{ Medical }}}}

...etc.

I want to edit some of these titles, but it becomes a huge chore when you have to add so many symbols, etc. Can this be done from our Amazon account or Kindle for Mac?

Thank you in advance for any pointers!!

There's a Windows app called "Kindle Collection Manager" which lets you manage your collections on a PC.

Thank you for the quick reply, but is there anything for a Mac? I use all OSX devices/programs... forgot to mention that in my OP.

Sorry, I'm not a Mac person. Hopefully somebody else will be able to assist you.

This one will create collections based on folder location. I works off a text file but you have to manually copy the collection file back to the kindle and rely on using a web interface:

I used it the other day after finally organizing my books into reasonable folders. He has Mac instructions.

I don't know if you knew this, but the symbols can remain up while you use the rest of the keyboard, so it's really only a couple more clicks than it would be to do it on a computer.

I'm pretty sure that Kindleabra also has Mac support.
