Series Numbers for long series

I have a few series that have almost 20 books in them which is great for giving me lots to read. However, Calibre removed the 0`s that I put at the beginning of the series numbers. That makes the first 9 eBooks sort out of order on my eBook Reader. Is there a way to add the "0" to the beginning of single digit series numbers to force the correct sort?

Try this (or a version of this) in your send to device template

{author_sort}/{series} - {series_index:0>2s} - {title} - {authors}

This will set your file names with preceding zeros on your series index.

If you want to include the series info in your your metadata title try this thread, specifically the General Metadata spoiler.
