How to show book title instead of name

Is it possible to have the books be listed by the title that's in the PDF instead of the filename. I could go about renaming them all, of course, but the metadata is already in the PDFs.

The Books-view shows the title that is in the pdf-file, once the file is viewed/opened. If the document is never opened it will show the filename. The SDCard-view keeps on displaying the filename (if I am not mistaken).

(The following does not apply to firmware versions 1.x)

Newly added books: Go to Settings -> Advanced Settings and check "Enable thumbnail generation". This will create a thumbnail and read title and author for every book that's added to the DR.

To do this for books already on the device: backup then delete global.db (on the root of the SD-card) and do the above. The next index could take a very long time.

As Mackx pointed out, in the SD-card view books are always shown by filename. One way to bypass this is to access the SD-card through shortcuts. You can create shortcuts (via the menu) for every directory in the root of the SD-card (Books, News, etc) and access the SD-card that way.
