Can this plugin manage a book that fits in multiple series?

@JSWolf - just read the first post (or try it) for all the things it supports - you will see that it does support having multiple series columns.

When using this plugin to put a book in multiple series, does it actually put said book in the correct order in the collections of the multiple series?

Wow, I never realized this and I've used the plugin from day 1. Hopefully it's a recent update as my hands hurt when I think of all the typing I did a while back in some custom series columns. Don't know why I never thought about clicking on the choice arrow in the series column box until I read this comment.

Ditto, error message came up, plugin doesn't crash, it lets me fill in title but after selecting ok and closing plugin, title shows up as "unknown" in calibre.

No, you can only manipulate one series at a time with this plugin - whatever series column that you choose in the dropdown, that is the set of manipulations that will be saved. Any changes that may have been made for other series column(s) while you had the plugin window open will be discarded.

This is intentional and won't be changed - after all by saying a book belongs in a different series you are likely going to be working with a different selection of books anyway. And as proven by a bug in the early days of this plugin it all just gets too complicated trying to work out whether changes to a particular series column that isn't currently selected were intended by the user or accidental such as by being the default when they opened the dialog.

Hate to break it to you but the multiple series column feature has been in there since day 1. If it makes you feel any better it didn't work very well due to the bug I mentioned above until v1.2.1 but that was still almost a year ago.

I've created my first ever empty book today as a place holder for a series where I am missing a title. My question is only indirectly related to this plug-in, but when I purchase the actual book I'm missing, will it be 'seen' as a duplicate when I add it to Calibre?

I had no clue there was a multiple series column feature - I've been trying to figure out what to do with a couple of anthologies I have that contain books of different authors / different series.

IMHO, drag and drop the book into the existing Metadata/details record and avoid all the confusion

@copyrite - it isn't related to this plugin in that the answer is no different to if you added an empty book via the Add menu. Whether a duplicate book gets created or the format gets merged comes down to (a) how you import the book and (b) what your add book settings are.

If you do as theducks says and search for the book first and then drag/drop onto the book details panel or open the edit metadata dialog and drag/drop onto the formats area then it will 100% merge.

If you drag/drop onto the main window or add using the Add dropdown, then it firstly depends on your settings for reading metadata/filename regular expression etc. That will determine whether the book is evn identified as "possibly" a duplicate.

Assuming it does match, then it comes down to whether you have ticked the Automerge box in Preferences -> Adding books and which option you chose. See the help/other forum threads for more info on that.

Or he could use Add -> Add files to selected book records. That does the same as drag & drop, I think. I use it most of the time; the dragging and dropping isn't natural to me. I like to give explicit commands to do something, I guess
