DRM status column with drm:false

Hi all,

In reponse to bug 852514 the option to search for drm:false was added to Calibre 0.8.20. As far as I can tell, this should find books without DRM, and searching for drm:true should find all my books that contain DRM.

I want to use this to add a Yes/No column that shows which of my books are DaRMed, and which aren't.

However, I can't get it to work. SInce I'm not that familiar with Calibre details I'm asking here first. In Calibre 0.8.21 (windows and Linux) I click on the search button, on the advanced search window I type "drm:false" into "All these words:" field, and press OK.

I expect to see only DRM free books, but I still see all my books.

Any ideas?
Reinier

What you want to do is not a part of the calibre library search feature. The DRM search you are referring to is part of the Get Books feature not the normal search.
