Unhappy Calibre - Changing Author Title and Deleting

Can you tell me if it is possible to set up Calibre to show Title and Title sort to show the identical name As I change it every time
eg The Reading Group and Reading Group,The.
Want them both to say The Reading Group Is this possible automatically?

Also should books on my Kobo that I delete from it --
(while it is USB plugged in to pc and Calibre opened ) also then be deleted from my Calibre Library too?
Just found out and having to re import them again Grrr

What view (Library or Device)?
How are you deleting(list exact steps)?

I work from Library view when deleting from my PEz.
I right-click on a title (has on device ticked),
I use "Delete selected book from device".

I never had it touch my Library copy.

To set the Title and Title Sort to be the same, set the tweak 'Author sort name algorithm' to 'Copy' (in Preferences -> Tweaks)

And no, the books will not be deleted from your library when in Device View, but they will be deleted when you are in Library View. It's a good habit to get into to always use the arrow beside the Remove Books icon or the right mouse button and the Remove Books submenu.

I was in Device view and deleted a few books as noted they were incorrect titles
They have gone from Calibre too!
I was planning on re editing them in Calibre and re adding

Regarding Tweaks where is it? Plus I only want to change the title sort box to be the same as Title box

Though is it possible to do it for the Author too? lol
But is it too late now I have 400 books Really dont want to edit them all again

The books should not have been deleted from Calibre. When in Device View the Delete Books button warns that the books will be permanently deleted from your device and that is exactly what happened when I just tried it: gone from my DX but still in the Calibre library. Are you sure you weren't in Library View?

The tweaks are in Preferences (Preferences -> Tweaks). For authors, set 'Author sort name algorithm' to 'copy'; to get the titles the way you want, set 'title_series_sorting' and 'save_template_title_series_sorting' to 'strictly_alphabetic'

To get them all fixed: Edit Metadata in Bulk is your friend.

Tweak setting is arrived a using the Tweaks button near the bottom of Preferences.
Other settings are on "adding books" or one of the "Look and feel" tabs

You might take a few moments and just look over (make no changes at this time ) each Preference, just to see what is available .

BTW, some changes do not affect what is already within your library, only future additions.
