Keeping Same File Names
When I do a large conversion of files, almost all of the file names have changed due to their metadata. Can I have it so the metadata is bypassed and the converted files keep the same name they started as?
This would be a HUGE help.
It is a monumental task to go back and manually edit every single file to be the way you want them. And it is also a monumental task to edit every single file with the metadata editor.
I like to name my files by author first, and then title. Every time I convert files, it changes them to title and then author. But many of the files also get changed to all kinds of things that I have to edit afterwards.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can make the output filenames be author then title (or author_sort then title_sort) or many other combinations. Configure the "Save template" under Preferences -> Sending books to devices or Preferences -> Saving books to disk. Sometimes you need to use a Metadata plugboard.
This does not entirely solve your problem, since the author or title might get changed on import. If you absolutely don't want the metadata (author and title) to change, then use the Preferences -> Adding books -> Configure metadata from filename and uncheck Read metadata from file contents.
