Red face Get Metadata from TXT File When Importing

Hello all,

I've downloaded a few stories in .txt format, and they have the metadata embedded within the text file. The beginning of the files are all similar, as below:



[Title]

[Author]



Genre: [text]
Language: [text]
Published: [text]
Updated: [text]
Rating: [text]
Chapters: [text]
Words: [text]



Is there a way to have calibre recognize these fields and add them to the metadata when importing? I've tried selecting the checkbox "Preferences>Adding books>Read metadata from file contents rather than file name" to no avail. I'll attach a sample file if that's helpful, too. Any help would be appreciated!

No, there isnt. calibre knows nothing about adhoc metadata formats in txt files.
