Both excellent questions. I don't have an answer for you. I'll look into it. Where would I find collection management settings in Calibre just in case I've accidentally turned something on? As for your second question, these are purchased or borrowed kepubs. I wasn't surprised that sideloaded books needed to be reorganized. (But I'm always pleasantly surprised that they survive a reset.)
I only have one sideloaded ebook on my iPad that differs with the dozen or so on my KA1 LE. They aren't the issue. It's definitely a cloud sync issue—unless I've configured Calibre to do something I didn't intend. With your help, we can rule it out. Thanks for both of your replies.

Look up one post. I answered this while you were writing this post.

No matter what the settings are, the collection management that calibre does should only affect books that are on the device that match with books in the library. If it isn't doing anything, then it is going to be some interaction across Kobo's servers. Are the clocks set correctly on both devices? The syncing uses timestamps, so if the clocks are wrong, the device with the latest time will probably win.

Out of curiosity, is there some reason that this plugin can't be disabled? I'm trying to track down a probably-unrelated issue with my calibre setup, and wanted to temporarily disable this plugin to make sure it wasn't involved, but instead had to delete it and then reinstall it later.

It's not just this plugin, the User Interface plugin cannot be disabled. I've never looked into why. The only thing you can do is uninstall them.

It looks like the issue is that the InterfaceActionBase class that the plugin is inheriting from sets can_be_disabled to False as the default:

Code:
class InterfaceActionBase(Plugin):  # {{{

    supported_platforms = ['windows', 'osx', 'linux']
    author         = 'Kovid Goyal'
    type = _('User interface action')
    can_be_disabled = False
Not sure why it has that as the default for UI plugins, when the API docs seem to warn against setting that to False, but allowing it to be disabled *should* be as simple as setting can_be_disabled back to True in __init__.py

I'll have a look, but I have a feeling I've seen a reason for them not allowing them to be disabled.

But, rather than randomly disabling plugins, it might be better to start a thread to discuss the problem you are having and see if anyone has ideas. Most of the user interface plugins will only do something when you interact with them. This one is a little different as it has hooks to do something when a device is plugged in or removed. But, that is about the only thing that disabling the plugin would affect.

Good morning, I find this a really useful plugin. I checked the box to automatically update the reading progress in Calibre when I plug in my Kobo Aura One which it does but I still get the following error message.

calibre, version 3.26.1

Any ideas? No other plug-in I have installed does anything on start-up or when I plug in my Kobo. Thank you.

Hi @davidfor
I am using several feature from this plugin more than two years.
And although you write "A couple of annotations options that I'm not happy with." it is working exact as I like.

But now ... ??suddenly?? the annotation dialog shows a strange layout, in fact all html tag are added e.g.

<hr /><b>H0</b> by <b>Marcus Hammerschmitt</b>



<hr /><b>Zuletzt gelesenes Buch:</b> 2018-06-25 18:05:17<br /><b>Prozent gelesen:</b> 100%<hr />



<b>Kapitel 13:</b> Rügen für Ungeduschte<br /><b>Annotation</b><br /><b>Kapitelfortschritt:</b> 23.53%<br /><b>Hervorhebung:</b> H0<br /><b>Anmerkungen:</b> 5sehr, sehr gut geschrieben. Von diesem Autoren werde ich mehr lesen.<br /><hr />


This was not so till last week. The only change I can remeber is my update of Calibre 3.15 to 3.26.
I need to copy/paste the content, correct my typos and change order which is totally ok.
But now I need to remove all that html tags which I really like to avoid.

Any idea how I can get the former layout i.e. without showing the html tags?

That error appears to be happening on the line that starts the progress update from the Goodreads Sync plugin. And it means that you haven't configured the Goodreads Sync plugin properly. You need to authorise it to use your Goodreads account. Either that, or uncheck the option on the reading status display to update Goodreads.

But, I will add some code to handle this more gracefully.

I forgot about that function. There was a change in one of the libraries that calibre uses that broke the way the HTML was built. It actually affected the other two ways of getting annotations as well (the Annotations plugin and the Fetch Annotations in calibre). I have fixed these, but had forgotten that this used the same code. I'll try and get a fix up tonight. If not, it will probably be some time next week (I'm away for the weekend celebrating my mother's 90th birthday).

Beta: Fix for Copy Annotations

Attached is a beta to make a first pass at fixing the reported problems with the Copy Annotations function. But, when I doing this, I remembered that this function makes calls to the calibre Fetch Annotations function. It actually uses that function to get the annotations and then wraps them in more HTML before displaying them. What that means is that I cannot completely fix the problem in the plugin. But, I have already done the fix in calibre. It should be in the next release of calibre. A change is needed in the plugin to fix some of the code.

Also, the results look strange. But, it has been a long time since I last used this. Someone will have to tell me if it has change.

The beta also has a couple of other changes:
  • New: Option to open cover image directory.
  • Fix: Set the ___SyncTime when setting the LastDateRead if the ___SyncTime is later. This is needed because of a change in the firmware and how the "Recent" sorting works.
  • Fix: Change annotation builder to handle recent change in BeautifulSoup

If there are any problems, please report them here. I'll look at them next week.
