Prevent filename changing

I thought I had fixed Calibre so when I add a book, it does not change the filename. I was wrong. So, how do I set Calibre to stop changing the filenames? I have them the way I want. I don't want them the way Calibre wants them.

You cannot. The internal structure of the Calibre library is not under user control (and never has been). You should read the sticky on this subject.

What you can control is the naming stle that you want to be used when you exprt books from Calibre.

But I can't control the filename on export. It's been changed already and already screwed up. No regex can put it right. I use version numbers in the filename like the pirates do to keep track of changes in case I make any. I lose the version number in the filename when I import to Calibre.

If I was to make a version number column, could I use that to add the version number to the filename and if so, how?

Yes. I do the same. To add it to your filename on export, simply change your save template, for example:

{title} - v{#version}
