Adding book series to cover???

Ok I downloaded the new version of calibre (0.7.18) today because in the "whats new" option of the pop up it said it was now possible to add series info on the cover page of the book...........I can't figure out how to do this, does anyone know?

This is for calibre generated covers. If you have series info for a book when you click generate cover in the edit meta information window the series info will automatically be added to the cover generated.

Any thoughts of adding series and series number as a prefix to the tittle when it exports to Kindle?

I haven't tested but what about "Preferences | Send books to device"

Template to Save
{author_sort}/{series} - {series_index} {title}

I don't know how well it would work for titles with empty series, I guess we'll see a leading dash
