Individual Instapaper articles

Hi,

I use Calibre to sync my DX with Instapaper.

However, it drives me nuts to have all my bookmarked articles put into one file.

How do I get Calibre (or Instapaper?) to create a separate file for each article?

Thanks,
Chris

I don't know if there's a way to do that. But just to let you know, if you press the 5-way, (at least on my K3), you can access the entire article list, so it's sort of like a collection...

You can also move the 5-way to the left or right to go to the previous or next article in the list.

is there any way to rename the files Instapaper generates? seeing Instapaper with a date on my Home screen isn't very helpful for organisation

when i collect articles about visiting France, say, I'd like to call the Instapaper collection 'France'

Yes, you can do that in Calibre. I do it every time I download from Instapaper.

Thanks guys. The reason I use separate files for articles is that I delete an article once I'm done with it. Articles are organized by date and title. I can see progress just by looking at the Kindle home screen. I really don't want to deal with another article list in the Instapaper/Caliber file.

Thanks!

Chris
