>> Can you explain why you wanted it out of curiosity?

It was just a thought. I have just started to use your plug-in - thanks by the way - and am using it more and more in different ways. I envision many further reasons to use it.

In particular I have been using it to edit my database of books - I have an extremely large library - but I have also had my books spread out on many computers and many directories, have imported a number of duplicates, etc.

So some of the views I have created are very similar to each other - and not always immediately obvious which I am in at the moment.

I just thought it would be - particularly in terms of looking to future uses - convenient to be able to quickly tell which particular view I was in at any moment.

That's really all the thought was about - just trying to offer constructive ideas for possible development of the plug-in. I appreciate your response and your time in creating this tool. Thanks

I too would find that useful information, although I would be content with a checkmark next to the last selected view. Whether or not I've changed some of the columns around, it would be helpful to know when I was ready to switch to a new view, this would help to keep me from selecting the same one again. I too have similar views, some of which are exactly the same except one is filtered for specific tracks whereas the other is the full library.

Just wanted to pop in and say I'm now using this plugin too. Now that I'm managing multiple libraries with multiple restricted views in each for different reasons, it's nice to not have to manually fiddle with the columns only applicable in certain views.

So you can add this to the growing list of "things I thought I didn't need but now can't live without".

Haha, glad to hear it. My number one usage of it is to restore my sort order with a keypress as I am forever doing actions which alter it, a fraction of what the plugin offers but glad you and others have found a use for the other stuff

Well since we have wandered down that road....

I currently have 23 different views, some are for editing, goodreads management, kindle collection creation, reading list adjustments, additions to my library, samples etc... This list of course could be a lot smaller but I have four that are in duplicate, one restricted with a specific group of books and its duplicate on the entire library. This, reading list, kindle collections and goodreads are my most used plugins but I currently have 17 installed 15 of which belong to Kiwidude.

Feature request (well, more of an idea than a request -- I'm succeeding by editing the .json for now)

Be able to import a viewset from another library (any library in the .json, including libraries that no longer exist, but still have a viewset in the .json)
Overwriting(?) existing views of the same name.

Possible Enhancements -
select which view(s) to import
select a .json file to import from



As CWatkinsNash said, this is definitely one of those "things I thought I didn't need but now can't live without".
Thanks

Now that is an idea I would not mind seeing. This would help me keeping track of my work and home views.

Hey,

I really like your plugin, many thanks for this! The only minor problem for me is: I have a desktop computer with 24" display and a netbook with 10". I would really like to create a "netbook view", where a number of columns are not shown and - more importantly - where the width of the columns shown is much smaller than in my default view. However, the plugin does not save any information about the width of the columns. Would it be possible to implement this?

Greets,
domee

Beta for next release

@domee,

Here is a version for you to experiment with that allows you to save the column widths. To store the widths, you select the view, get the widths for the columns how you like them and then on the View Manager menu choose the new "Save column widths" option. This will store the widths for the current view, and will apply them the next time the view is applied.

It is in need of further testing so anyone who wants to assist with this it would be appreciated.

When a few people give me the thumbs up I will officially release it.

v1.1 Released

Changes in this release:
  • Add ability to store column widths as part of the view information

This is the same code as a few of you have tested as mentioned above, but with the verison officially bumped to 1.1. Nothe that to save your column widths, you need to first select the view to customise, then change your widths how you like them, then choose the "Save column widths" option in the View Manager menu.

Note that this now requires Calibre 0.8.8 or later

I'm running the just-released version of Calibre (I guess that's obvious from the below) under Windows 7-64bit. I attempted to install the plugin for the first time and received an error message. I'm posting the details as requested. Thank you! Cyn

@technomom - thanks for reporting this. Obviously the last release needed a bit more testing than was done. This should resolve your issue for you, please let me know how you get on.

Kiwidude: I installed the latest version and it destroyed all my views, I then tried to just copy over a saved copy of the json file and they are all still messed up. All my views only show the title column. How do I get my views to work again without rebuilding them?
