Metadata and PDFs
I started using Calibre to organize my PDF ebooks, but quickly got bogged down with entering titles and author names and ISBNs by hand, and then fetching metadata from isbndb.com. It works, but it's a slow process with a lot of manual verification. Something automated would be much easier.
In a previous thread, this issue was explored, the upshot being that code was added to Calibre that would read ISBNs from the PDF content (and thank you, Calibre gurus, for that), but unfortunately the code doesn't work for any of my PDFs. I'm not sure it works at all, actually. I opened ticket #4113 to track this issue, but it seems to be low-priority.
Since it might be a long while before this gets fixed, I'm trying to figure out other solutions.
Anybody have any other ideas about automated ways to get metadata from PDFs?
