Send to device, sorted by format folder

Hi,

I've been having a problem where I want to send my Calibre ebooks to my device (Droid 2 using Aldiko) sorted by format folder on the device. For example, say I have a book in PDF format that I want to send to the device's folder (F:/eBooks). What I want is when I click "Send to device", it will send it to /eBooks/PDF/ folder, right now it only sends it to /eBooks/import/ but does not sort by a format folder, instead dumping every format (EPUB, MOBI, PDF) into one folder.

The template I'm using under Preferences->Send to device is
Code:
{#formats}/{title} - {authors}
where "formats" should be a custom lookup field.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

I suspect your #formats contains more than one format.

You can use 'Literals' in the Template:
Code:
PDF/{title} - {authors}
is valid. Just adjust the template and send a Single format at a time

Sadly, turb0sun, what you want isn't possible. I've been wanting that feature for as long as I have been using Calibre.

It's not so much {#formats} you want, it's the format of the file itself. And that's one thing we (the users) can't find out.

Hmm, that's weird, I remember being able to do it in an earlier ver., but that was before the Formats column was a custom metadata/column. Oh well, thanks though.
