Author format in Send to Kindle

When I drag'n'drop a book from Calibre to Send to Kindle, the author's name is formatted as: firstname lastname, eg Bill Smith.

However, I prefer to have my books listed on my Kindle with their author's names formatted as: lastname, firstname, eg Smith, Bill.

I have found that I can achieve this by using the Calibre Save to Disk in a Single Directory function, and then using drag'n'drop from that directory to Send to Kindle.

Is there a Calibre option I can use so that drag'n'drop direct from Calibre to Send to Kindle will result in my preferred lastname, firstname format?

I'm not sure it applies to drag & drop, but the only thing I can think of is to create a custom plugboard to provide an filename ouput scheme like you want. I cannot advise further since I have never used plugboards.

Here's a link to the manual:http://manual.calibre-ebook.com/temp...and-plugboards
