Smile How to change way Calibre sorts and manages collections

IGNORE this post sent to wrong Forum.


Greetings to all. I am in my late 60's and new to using e-books. I have tried to read and understand collection and sort orders for book both in the computer library and on my Sony PRS600. I failed and now need help. My needs are very simple. I want the sort order for both devices to be "Author series(if one) and Series #" That is my first need.

My more important need is how collections are handled on the PRS600. When I transferred a series to the reader I created some 49 different collections from two series( Robert Jordon Wheel of time, and Alan Dean Fosters Pip and Flinx Series). I expected to have only two collections to show up on my reader (Flinx and Pip, and Wheel of time) not the 49 that i got. my question is how can i set up the defaults to only create collections based on Series if there is one.

Hi arnoldajr and welcome to MobileRead. If you click on Author, the Calibre DB will reorganize by author. If this doesn't help you might try posting your question on the Calibre foruwm
