Send only updated files to reader
I'm sure this question has been answered, but several searches have not turned it up.
I have made changes to the metadata in several books in the library (without the reader attached). These are already in the reader but not with the new metadata. When I plug in the reader, all books are still tagged as "On Device", even the ones I changed. Is there a way to have Calibre track the books that have been changed in the library and resend just those books to the device?

No, there is no automatic way. There are various schemes in use, ranging from putting a 'todo' tag on books when you change them to maintaining a date custom column. Another scheme is to simply resend the books that might have changed. Other people will probably chime in with their favorite methods.
We have considered adding a field that would contain the time the metadata was last changed. Unfortunately, there are complexities, so it hasn't been done yet.

I change the date field to "today" if I make a change and will want to resend the book. This means that all changed books are listed ABOVE ie later than the catalog which is always the very last thing I generate before sending files to my PRS-505. I only send them every few weeks so it helps me to remember.
