Series # tweak not working

Code:
series_index_auto_increment = 'next_free'
It used to work.
If I was missing #1 of 3, 1 would get used.
Even though the index 1 is not used, the series is now set to 4
Anyone else seeing this 8.16 XP?

next_free means: First available integer larger than the smallest existing number

So if you have number 2, 3

next_free will give you 4 not 1

If you have 2, 4
It would give you 3

It does not mean smallest available integer larger than 0

Ah' that is why back filling book 1 does not work. I guess all the other times I had a 1 and it did the rest correctly as you indicate.

This sounds like a very nice option.

Lots of times I am adding a number of books to a series, filling in missing numbers. It is a pain to have to change the series number each time.

Maybe call it "first_free"

The feature is there, it just only works after book 1 in a series.
Note: there is an(other) excellent plug-in "Manage Series" available that allows a 'fast shuffle' of numbers

Oh, I see.

Strange, but useable. You just have to make sure that you explicitly set the series number of the first book you add, if it is lower than any others already there.

But it still sounds like it would be nice to have it accept "first_free" to the lowest free integer.

No, you only have to set #1

If you change the tweak from next_free to first_free it seems like it should do as you expect including book 1.

I not sure you do. Go to Preferences - Tweaks and review the Auto Increment Series Index tweak.

The tweak differentiates between first_free and next_free. I haven't tried either but they are described differently, first_free seems to include book 1 next_free does not.

Kovids post says No (my original complaint/observation). 1 appears to be the bottom end anchor point/base

Your original complaint/observation was about the next_free option of the tweak not the first_free option. I haven't tried this tweak but Kovid's post was specifically about the next_free option of the tweak. These are two different tweak options. If you don't want to try the first_free tweak option that's fine with me but Kovid did not address the first_free option in his post.

Maybe I'm reading the tweak wrong.

Quote:
first_free - First available integer larger than 0
next_free
- First available integer larger than the smallest existing number
last_free - First available integer smaller than the largest existing number Return largest existing + 1 if no free number is found
const - Assign the number 1 always a number - Assign that number always.

I was talking about next_free. first_free should do exactly what the documentation says it will do, pick the first available number > 0.
