Just a simple question

Hi folks,

I'm new to this forum and not really into "mobile reading".
However I do read eBooks an my PC and a few days ago I discovered the "Calibre"-Software to organize my downloads. At least for my purposes it is just fantastic and can be understood intuitively - for the most part.
As for further help, the Calibre-Website referred me to this forum.

What I do not understand (and could not find help for) is how to separate authors when there are more than one for the same book.
Now, with the tags, you separate them with a comma and they each appear individually in the tag list. Like: History, politics, sociology ...

But how do you achieve this effect, if you have, say:
Miller, Charles and Smith, Fred
as Co-Authors of one book? The comma here signifies only the separation between last and first name. Putting a semicolon or a / between the names doesn't help me to split the entries into
one for "Miller" and another one for "Smith",
as I would like to have them.

The solution is probably easy; but when you don't now where and how to look for it .....

Thank you in advance for your kind assistance!
