Different export filenames for series / non-series books?

Is it possible to automatically have different filename for export depending on whether or not a book is part of a series.

Ideally I'd like to have:

[Series name] [number in series] - title

if a book is a part of a series, but just "title" if it's not.

Can this be done?

No. But almost.

Either you save books in two batches, with and without series, or use the fact that {series} and {series_index} returns an empty string if no series.

I have a save template like this:

{author_sort[0]}/{author_sort}/{series}/{series} {series_index:>2s} {title} - {authors}

If it is a book in a series it will be saved as:

F/Friesner, Esther M (Editor)/Chicks in Chainmail/Chicks in Chainmail 1 Chicks In Chainmail - Esther M Friesner (Editor)

If it is not in a series it will be:

A/Achebe, Chinua/Things Fall Apart - Chinua Achebe.epub

I agree that it would be nice to have different save templates for books in a series and not in a series. Also a special save template for antologies. And for ...

Yes. Try this in your save template.

{series} {series_index} {authors} - {title}

You can review this thread for more info.
