Device: Nook Simple Touch
Problem: Calibre automatically using "sort" fields on devices

I've got a Nook Simple Touch, and I use Calibre to manage my library.
The problem is, even if I set "{authors}/{title}{series}" as the destination path for example, Calibre sends it using title_sort and series_sort instead.
Maybe it's the Nook plug-in, maybe something else, I don't know, but it's annoying.

E.g.
{title}{series:| [|]}
The Twelve [The Passage] -> expected filename
Twelve, The [Passage, The] -> actual filename

Plugboards work fine though, metadata doesn't get switched up automatically, it's only the filename.

What could I do to prevent this? I don't care about the title, but I really don't want it to screw around with the series tag.

Yes, this seems to be it, thanks a lot!
This tweak should at least be noted on the send-to-device settings page, it's kind of important IMO.

Nah!
Card catalogs have done it the default way forever (There is a reason it is called 'Library Order' )

Telephone books have always been Ln, Fn
Lets see George (300 pages of them )

It is only computer searching that allows the other way to be usable.

But you're right, of course.
