Exporting based on individual tags

I have a book with multiple tags - Fiction, General, Science fiction, Science Fiction - Adventure, Fiction - Science Fiction, Young adult fiction, Science Fiction & Fantasy, Space Opera, Adventure.

Frankly it's like they wanted to cover all their bases and just tossed everything in there.

Anyway, let's say I don't want to delete out half the tags but I want to export based on just one, say, Science Fiction - Adventure. Is there a way to do that? I know if I use the <tags> identifier, ie {tags}/{title}/{title} - {authors}, it will simply spit out the whole string of tags as the first folder name whether or not it's the only tag selected in the Tag Browser.

Thanks.

I consider 'Export Based' to mean Selection.
Export Naming on a single tag
I am not sure how to make the Template Language guess which of the available tags you want.
Have a look-See at the advanced options http://manual.calibre-ebook.com/template_lang.html

This might be a place to use a custom column with the desired value

Can you not just click on that tag in the tag browser? Away from my calibre computer so cannot check.

Thanks for the suggestion, Helen, but I did try that already and the answer is apparently no. It will give just the books with that tag but it doesn't weed out the other miscellaneous tags when I go to Save To Disk which is what I'm trying to figure out.

Based on what I was able to understand (which probably wasn't much ) and then the little bit of experimenting I did it doesn't look like it's possible to get the template language to guess which tag I want it to use. There's probably a way to get it to pull a specified tag but then you'd have to do a template for each tag. Ech.

Which is fine. It's pretty much an academic question for me as I do use Custom Columns but a friend was looking at my Calibre setup and said, "Why don't you just export on a single tag?" and my response was pretty much <blinkblink> "Cause I don't think I can?"

I am pretty sure that chaley gave someone advice on similar problem recently (yesterday?)

Could be wrong.

I think that was reducung the number of tags.
You can set it up to use the First, nth tag,
What can't be controlled is what tag is in thos positions (they appear alphabetical)

Creating and populating a custom column is the only sure-fire way I know of to be able to us e{#Mycolumn}

@theducks
I am sure you are right.

I thought I saw something (python program or script) that would do what the op wanted. But I am still scared of python

Nah. Different issue. What I wanted was to rename tags to "Genre: Tag Name" and series to "Series: Series Name" - basically trying to mimic the behavior of the sony_collection_name_template and sony_collection_renaming_rules tweaks for Automatic Management.

What the OP wants is more difficult. Frankly, it's probably easier to create a custom column and manually set the preferred tag (using Bulk Metadata Edit) than it is trying to accomplish this programmatically.
