Lightbulb Bug reports & advices for next versions (0.6.32 MacOS X)

Hello!

First of all, thanks one million almost for your great great software. I'm trying to inform you about my experience on MacOSX.

On this new version (0.6.32, not in older) when I edit the metadata from books and try to write an acute character (like á, é...) the text box writes me two characters, one with the acute and next the same character without acute (I'm from Spain).

And now advices for next releases:
- Automatic refresh when a metadata information is change. If I have order by BOOK SERIES and I put a new book of a series, I want to view the changes at realtime, for example.
- Includes the ability to use the clipboard for paste the book covers. With this, I have only to copy the image directly from the web and then paste on the metadata. As you know, now I must to download to my hard drive. Maybe a drag&drop option for covers would be good too.
- Add a group feature. With this, we can manage better our books, creating folders for specifics books. An automatic group creations by authors, book series would be great.
- The metadata information about number of the book on a book series (for example, Foundation Series by Asimov) does not appears on my ebook reader (Kindle 2) and I must to rename the books like 1., 2., etc... Are there any possibilities to fix this or change the name of the book automatically when calibre export to the book reader?

Thanks a lot and I still thinking on new features to propose.


Best regards and by the way, happy new year!

The latest release of Calibre provides a facility to provide a naming mask when sending files to a device. Using this will allow you to get the series info into the filename.

Of course the real solution is for the ePub standard to be enhanced to define how series should be handled and then the reader devices to get their firmware updated in line - but I am not holding my breath for that to happen any time soon.

Regarding the acute characters, that appears to be a bug in Qt 4.6 (which calibre switched to in 0.6.30). Until that is fixed, not much I can doa bout it.
