I just wanted to post that I would like this functionality as well. The reason I want it is to know which files I have already added the ISBN to. Some files show a rating which makes it obvious that I have already done it. But on some I don't know unless I bring up the edit window. It would be nice. All editable fields should be available for sorting, like iTunes.

Holding up iTunes as an example is is hilarious. If you want to know what books dont have ISBN type

isbn:false

in the search bar. And in any case this functionality has already been implemented and will appear in a couple of weeks.

That works for me. I don't like iTunes. But my music collection is the only thing other than my books that needs to be managed, and it does have every possible field available.

Does it have custom fields of multiple types, including fields that auto-increment and are regex searchable?

Just a heads up, you can now get a ISBN column. re: http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sourc...CYiNSs4uMB6YHA at bottom

or: Assuming you are running 0.7.21 [or newer], create a custom column of type 'column built from other columns'. Then enter as the template '{isbn}' (no quotes.) See the tutorials section of the manual for more discussion of what you can do with templates.

Thumbs up Displaying ISBN column in the main GUI

Hi all

It is possible (and easy) to add the ISBN to the Calibre list view. To do it add a new column and enter the following information....

Lookup Name = isbn
Column Heading = ISBN
Column Type = Column built from other columns
Template = {isbn}

Note that the Template fields only gets shown when selecting the correct column type.

Not only is it possible but it is explained in this Sticky post along with directions to create many other custom columns and plugboard entries.

I just tried this but when I click "OK" to create the column I get an error message:
calibre, version 0.7.46
ERROR: Unhandled exception: <b>AttributeError</b>:'QString' object has no attribute 'strip'

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\preferences\create_custom_co lumn.py", line 161, in accept
AttributeError: 'QString' object has no attribute 'strip'
I probably overlooked something really obvious but I can't see what :P

As for why I want the ISBN column, it's to check which titles are missing an ISBN before I import my library to LibraryThing.
I guess I'll use isbn:false in the search bar thingy instead, but I don't like to leave errors unaddressed.

It's a known bug, if you searched the forum for the error message you'd have found out. It's fixed in the next release, as a workaround, switch to english for the interface language.
