Plugboard Not Working with Paperwhite

Hi:

For some reason my plugboard in the title field is not working on the kindle paperwhite. I am using the following plugboard: {#stripped_series:lookup(.\s,#initials,.,#shortene d,series)}{series_index:0>2s| [|] }{title} - {tags} - {#sectag}. The device it is linked to is the kindle2, the books transfer back and forth correctly on the device. Could this be the reason the plugboard doesn't work??

which format are you choosing?

I had to use 2 plugboards with the same expression to get titles to cross consistently: mobi:kindle2 and azw3:kindle2.

I am using mobi files but I suppose I should add one for azw3 files also since I have them reconverted using the kf8 thingy.

If you are creating "joint" mobi files with both kf8 and mobi 6 plugboards will not work. Use azw3 or standalone mobi.

Why not just set all formats to be renamed? I rename all my books whether azw* or epubs to stick the series into the title. It works fine.

Because it won't work for Mobi books you create with both as the output. See Kovid's quote.

But if I don't have any joint files it should work just fine?

I have never set out to create one. (I'm not really sure what they are for.)

I'm assuming they must be deliberately created in calibre, in which case I should know I'll have a problem? Does anything besides for calibre create them (say, books I have bought from Amazon) and if so, how do I recognize them?

The option for both is in the mobi output during conversion. It is not selected by default.

I have no idea.
