Exclamation Is there a setting to have each book (with different format) as a different entity?

Let's say I have this book X which is both PDF and EPUB, I want to have them separated in the library. Right now the book X has formats PDF, EPUB.

I want:
  • X - PDF
  • X - EPUB

Not:
  • X - PDF,EPUB

Thanks!

The Preference setting mentioned will work, but only for new additions to the library. It will not "unmerge" existing books in the library.

Different original formats have usually different identifications as e.g. ISBN. You need to move them manually to a new book entry if you want to see formats as separate book entries.
A possible creative way around this is to use connect/share ->connect to folder and select your library folder. This folder will then be shown as a device and each book format as single book entry. You can use this to "add" book formats as separate books to your library.

I don't know of any way to unmerge the books in bulk, but you could do it fairly easily on a book-by-book basis.

The Add Empty Book option, despite its name, can also be used to duplicate the book record you're currently on, including all its metadata. Then delete one book format from the original record and the other format from the new record. Adjust the metadata as you like.

To do this in bulk, I'd do the following:

1) ' Embed Metadata' on all books

Do not automerge books on adding.
Read metdadata from file contents. (both are on the 'Adding Books' settings)

2) Create a new library

3) Do an 'Add Books' from your original library *directory* into the new library, using 'Add books from directories, including subdirectories, multiple books per directory'

That should get you a book entry per format with the right metadata in your new library. Figuring out which format is which and doing something with that is left as an exercise for the reader
