I tried this tonight and got it working. Thanks for the suggestion.

Metadata Sources Presets

I'd like to suggest a plugin for metadata download presets, similar to the "Quick Preferences" plugin.

When downloading metadata for a large amount of books, I use ISBNDB and Goodreads as sources, downloading metadata only, not covers.

I then go through the books to correct missing or inaccurate data. Typically, the first step is to just do the same search again for those.

I then correct books individually and it is here that a preset option would be useful.
- if a book is missing comments, etc., I like to add a couple of sources
- if a book has a poor/missing cover, I spread the search wider with more sources

This does mean that I have to configure the sources quite frequently, which can be tedious.

I an hoping that someone with the technical nous and configure an easier solution - or suggest an existing one that I am unaware of. Thanks in advance.

Dear All

Haven't see this yet: I would like to have a plugin that collect metadata from www.stripinfo.be and/or www.bdtheque.com to make it easier to index french and dutch comic books

Thank you

Cheers

I don't know if this exists already, but I'd like a plugin to sum the contents of a custom column of numerical data in a Virtual Library. This would help keep track of my "Purchased but Unread" book balance without having to export to .csv format.

Please let me know if the ability to do so is already implemented! Thanks.

Is purchased a Tag?

If you have a VL for not read and search on the Tag for Purchased: the count will be at the bottom

<#purchased> of <#not read>

It's not the number of books that I'm looking for, but the sum total of my custom column "Cost".

I don't tell my wife how much I spend on books and neither does she. Don't ask, Don't Tell (or keep records )

You will need a spreadsheet. I don't think calibre even has the core utilities to do this (sum)

I don't either. Some sort of user configurable statistics screen might be handy. But, maybe it can be done using a catalogue? At the least, it should be able to produce a CSV file with the appropriate data.

Won't program language (python) have the + operator? I think so. I don't think that the main problem would be the + operator but getting all the books to apply it.

It is the database engine Summary tools that is needed. (think doing this on 1000's of records)

The basic (a+b) math is needed/ probably used in many places.

email multiple files

I have been looking all over the forums and the internet for this, but have yet to find a good solution. I have people I share my Calibre content with through email (connect and share), and there are a couple cases where those people want the content in multiple formats. Like EPub (for the phone) and AZW3 for their reader. I currently have to use the 'send to multiple recipients' function and specify the format manually for their 'second' format. Just wondering if there is an easier way to do this, or if there is an plugin to always send all the formats listed for a single email address.

Thanks!

Send them bums EPUB and let them convert with THEIR Calibre, since they have the decision (what to read upon) problem

Smile hi there

I would like to request or suggest a plugin to read attributes from AutoCAD files like DWG and DWF so we can add our sample AutoCAD drawings.
