Will the new feature allow me to identify which collections my books are in as well? I currently have a column for 'collection' which is separate from the standard column for tags. I've been trying to figure out a way to get the collection name listed in the catalog & have not been able to do so yet.

Thank you for all your hard work on this!

You can specify a custom column to include in the Description header, that should do what you want. See 'Customizing the Output: EPUB/MOBI: Other options: Description header' in the first post of this thread.

I just found an indexing bug in the catalog generator, and missed the release window, so catalog generation will have some problems in 0.7.36 until I submit a patch for the next release. Sorry.

    • Select all of the text in the 'Generate catalog' window, and copy it to your clipboard. Save it to a file 'debug.txt'
There's probably a book with a character in the title that's confusing the indexer, but I need to see the debug trace to be certain.

Ticket created with debug file attached. Thanks for the simple instructions got the job done rather easily.

I believe your bug should be resolved with the next release (0.7.37).

I'm looking at it, will post more info when I figure out what's happening. This is a windows-only problem, and it doesn't occur in my Windows 7 installation.

I am also getting an error when trying to create a catalog in the 0.7.36 release. I'm running Win XP SP3. Here is the error message:

WindowsError: [Error 32] The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process: u'C:\\Documents and Settings\\Penny\\Application Data\\calibre\\caches\\catalog\\thumbs.zip'

I've tried rebooting to ensure that no other programs are using that file, and Calibre is the only program open at the time. I was doing a test catalog on the new functionality and was only using 5 books instead of the full library for the test.

Thank you for your help.

@SingleEyePhotos:
Please do the following:
- With no instances of calibre running, delete the thumbs.zip file
- Start calibre again, try building the catalog again
- Report the results, including the version of Windows you're running

As noted here and in another thread, there were some Windows-only problems with catalog generation in 0.7.36. They should be resolved in the next release.

Thanks G - was just coming in here to look for help on generating a catalog and lo and behold, the message was already posted regarding this. Will wait until next release for fix. Thanks again.
