You sure? I thought the discussion only came after it was removed.

Yes, I remember the bug report and thought about commenting on it. The next beta had the change and and the discussion started. I keep wondering what would have happened if I'd said something

Hello
I am having trouble removing shelves with calibre on My Kobo aura SD card
I had series as the shelf name and deleted series from the driver.

Metadata management is automatic

The shelves are still there athough they do not show up in calibre any more.

I restarted calibre, restarted the Aura, sent a book, removed a book, removed the SD card and reset a couple of times, and still the shelves are on the device. I even rebooted my computer.

Am kind of at a loss, next step is to remove books and resend them or the evil factory reset.

I must be missing something here.

Any hints

Helen

Do you have "Delete Empty Bookshelves" set in the Driver config ?

Yes I do, checked twice now

Changed to manual management and all the collections appeared again in the card A list. Back to auto and they were gone from list but still showed up on aura.

Deleting all the books now.

Just got my Kobo Mini today, and above is how I have mine shown. My question here, is there anyway to make the series info (shown on line 3) any bolder? I can barely read it it's so small and light.

Unfortunately the choice of font and brightness is out of our control. The only thing you might want to try is to use a metadata plugboard to add the series info to the book title as calibre transfers it. With that approach you would see

Thanks, I will either do that, or just put the next-in-series book on the Kobo instead of multiple books in a series.

edit - yes, that is what I will do, to put less strain on my eyes.

I had that same problem with the library listing. In some situations I know that line of text with the series name and number on it would be absolutely unreadable for me making it totally useless. I opted for just the series # in the name, since each series also has its own bookshelf, so the length of the book name didn't get ridiculously long and cut off.

Changing the text and that it's also in grey could be another item on the future firmware wishlist for me.

Long series + titles wraps around to the second line though, so I can still read it. Well, I guess they don't if the 3rd line appears.

On the "Sending books to devices" page, the "Metadata management" needs to be set to automatic. The date format is not used anywhere. The save template is used as the default but is saved with the driver options the first time you make changes using the driver configuration.

Hi, I have been using calibre with my shelves for some time now, with this post as a guide it has gone very well.

But, now I am having an issue, I have encountered a situation where I need some of my books shelved in Topic, not Series.

So, I used the #myshelves to do this, but they are now shelving under both?

I cannot find what I did wrong, so if anyone could help to set this up, I would most appreciate any advice.

What I need is this:

Topic shelves: books with Topic in #myshelves are put in Topic shelves.
Series shelves: books with Series field are put in Series shelves.
Neither: books with no Topic or Series go in a shelf, Uncatagorized.

How do I make it so it will only match one? So that book with Topic and data in the Series field will only go in its Topic shelf?
