To Kovid and developers - Suggestions

Hi,

I have 3 suggestions:

- Once you click on an author on the left bar, to be able to see "basic information" of him/her (like country, birth and death date, etc.) somewhere. This way we can fill up that info for writers and also we could look for country, etc.
- To be able to "divide" (or not, as an option) between fiction books (novels, poetry...) and non fiction (technicals books, manuals, etc...). I know that you can tag the books, but I would like with this option if you choose "fiction" only to see the fiction authors (novelists...) not ALL the authors.
- When you are updating the metadata there are five options to change between Caps and lower case but there aren't a sixth option: To put ONLY the FIRST letter (of the sentence -title) in capital.

Thanks guys!

1 - See this thread
2 - If you do tag, then you can use the restrictions to have your library displayed how you suggest. (ie only fiction books. or only non-fiction) - (see "restrict to" box next to search)
3 - the last option "Capitalize" does what you want

Great!

1. So...I'm not the first suggesting this. I'll wait...
2. Can't find it now but I will.
3. I though this option converts ALL in caps. I've never tried it. Sorry.

Thanks a lot!!!

All caps would use "Upper case"
The inverse would be "Lower case"

I'm using Calibre in spanish, maybe the translation confused me.

Why don't you use Genre? In the manual is very nice instruction, I was able to successfully create subgenres like Science Fiction.Military, Science Fiction.Romance etc whithout understanding much about proccess.
