File name issue with series name

Hi,

I'm new to this app which seems very promising but I'm facing a problem. There probably is an easy solution but I can't find it.

Basically, I'm importing my ebooks in Calibre mainly to check the metadatas and rename all my files with the same format.

In the save preferences i have the following string:
Code:
{author_sort[0]}/{author_sort} - {series} {series_index:0>3s|| -} {title:capitalize()}
It works pretty fine except that the series part in the generated file is not the way I'd like it. For example if the serie is "Les enquêtes de Lucas Davenport" and the title "Froid dans le dos", the file name will be:

Sandford, John - enquêtes de Lucas Davenport, Les 004 - Froid dans le dos.epub

What I would like it to be is :
Sandford, John - Les enquêtes de Lucas Davenport 004 - Froid dans le dos.epub

Could anybody please let me know if there is an easy way to achieve this?

Thanks in advance.

All,

It looks like I found a way to do what I wanted. Maybe not the best one but it works. I am now using:

Code:
{author_sort[0]}/{author_sort} - {series:'swap_around_comma($)'} {series_index:0>3s|| -} {title:capitalize()}

Change the tweak save_template_title_series_sorting (Control formatting of title and series when used in templates) to strictly_alphabetic.

You might also want to change the tweak title_series_sorting (Control sorting of titles and series in the library display) to the same thing.
