Display & Save Name-order

I'm really wondering why the way the Autors name ist displayed and the files are saved in an really undetaking way.

In every library and in real life the order will be:

<Lastname>__<Firstname>

Isn't it possible to change this to the order , or make it configurable ?

cheers
Dossi

By default calibre sorts authors by <Lastname>__<Firstname>

By default calibre shows authors the same way they are shown on the book <Firstname>__<Lastname>.

Read this section of the FAQ for clarification and how you may be able to change things to your liking.

Actually, nothing happens to the EXISTING BOOKS
The change applies to NEW additions.

The quality check (optional) plugin as a FIX section that will change the SELECTED books author direction

Thats one thing i was looking for. Really great for the existing books.

----------

But i can not figure out, what i have to set in the tweak

author_sort_copy_method

to set new entries to LN, FN

Now there it is set to : author_sort_copy_method = 'comma'
Will i have to set here 'invert' ??

Thanks in advance

Copy means that what you see is ALSO how it is sorted.
Joe Blow sorts as Joe Blow
Invert (the normal way)
eg Joe Blow sorts as Blow, Joe
