That is a list of the options you are using for the driver. There are two problems with it:
- '#genre,#allbooks,series,Im_Reading, Read, Closed, Shortlist' is the list of columns to use when creating shelves on the device. The names with the "#" in front of them are custom columns that you added. The names without the "#" are standard columns in calibre. None of "Im_Reading, Read, Closed, Shortlist" exist as columns in calibre. If you created custom columns with those names, add the "#" to the names. As they are, they don't do anything.
- The "True" and "False" are for the check boxes. The third "True" is for "Always upload covers". But, this only does something if "Upload covers for books" is also checked. I have meant to change this, but have not gotten around to it.
Also, when looking at the logs, I get a view on what people are reading. And sometimes a scare. While I was quickly scrolling through your log, "Bay City" flashed past. My brain added "Rollers". All that tartan, very scary
The list of columns I put in after reading this post/threadhttps://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...ng#post2003733
I don't need ,Im_Reading, Read, Closed, Shortlist' and I had removed #allbooks before sending the books so not sure why it is there. maybe it is time to reboot.
I do know for sure that the read status was gone as I checked it on calibre as well as on reader. Glad it is back.
I was flipping between books to see if the covers stayed consistent. They didn't, but eventually they seem to appear. One thing I noticed is that the read status remained unread in the book list until the correct covers appeared although usually the %read on the sleep screen was correct and they always opened at the correct page.
BTW I forgot to say earlier that I have never had the multiple shelves problem. I rarely use the Kobo software.
Again thanks for the help and the info.
