I had that only once after I removed the Kindle from my Amazon user account. Logged back in on the device and the collections and also the vocabulary builder worked again. You've got to keep the kindle registered to an amazon account for full functionality.

I would recommend just registering though.
Assuming that is indeed the problem.
Thanks for the quick replies guys.
I have registered it, so that wasn't the problem.

I have figured it out though. I didn't know the Collections Manager would show up as another book that had to be accessed from the list. I though it would show up as an option from the menu or something.

I have successfully synchronised my collections and everything works as it should. Thanks again!

So they weren't yet imported from the collections.json through CM into the Kindle's database.

Hi NiLuJe - It's great that you are continuing work on the Kindle Collections plug-in. I use it all the time with a Kindle Keyboard and so did my wife (Kindle 3) but she's just upgraded to a Kindle Voyage and it's my fault(!) that Kindle Collections are no longer working for her.

When you try to "Customize collections to create" she gets a message box with the text:

"calibre, version 2.12.0
ERROR: Kindle Collections: Not saving customizations due to an unknown kindle model."

Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.

regards

Steve

@stevebw: The KV can't be jailbroken without opening it up, so I've refrained form posting an update here, since it'd be useless for 99.99% of the user-base . At least this way you get a clear error message that the device is unsupported.

Hi NiLuJe
Thanks for responding - it's a shame that Amazon have spoilt collections on the Voyage. The 'native' method for adding to collections is so slow and clumsy I find it pretty well unusable, so your plugin is essential for me and this issue is enough to stop me upgrading - I'll stick to my trusty Kindle Keyboard!

I cant use a 'null' date to put a book in a collection ?

I have a custom date column in Calibre, where I enter the last date I read a book. When a book is first entered in Calibre that date is null (or what ever it is that Calibre uses to indicate no date yet).

I figured I could either "Ignore" using .+, or "include" using ^$ and then rename from ^$ pattern to "unread" to put the new books into an "unread" collection, but I cant seem to get any books to go into the my 'unread' collection.

I suspect the plugin code is seeing 'null' and then skipping pattern matching, so when combined with my pattern to discard all non-null ... there is nothing to put in the collection.

Are my attempts to pattern match incorrect ? or is this a plugin weakness ?

Thanks

@GreySloth: It probably depends on which value that column actually contains by default. Not familiar with those, but it might be 0, or a specific epoch? One quick'n dirty way to check would be looking at the DB itself manually ;p.

The default value displayed looks blank, I have no idea what is in the DB or how to manually look at the data in the DB, or how to FIND what it uses to represent 'no value'.

I do notice that if I use no filters and no renames, it creates a bunch of collections of the form yyyy-mm-dd (this is not the date format I use for the displayed data in calibre). All of the names are valid dates (none of them could be used to represent 'no value').

I really suspect that what ever Calibre uses to represent 'no value' would result in a invalid collection name, and that the plugin is discarding these without passing them to the filters or rename logic.

I would be willing to try to look at the DB manually, but would need instructions ....

Thanks

No, you do need it to be jailbroken. Read the first post in detail.

Okay, I'm having an issue, and it's most likely a simple solution, but I know if I work at it too much longer I'm going to get frustrated, so I figured I'd just ask.

I'm trying to reorganize the collections on my Kindle 4th generation, so that I can import them to my new paperwhite in the order I want and not have to jailbreak it (at least for now :P )

So I originally had 20 collections on the kindle, I have 28 now in Calibre, but when I go to preview before syncing to my kindle, it only deletes 12 of the collections on the kindle, replaces 8, and creates 8 new ones. So instead of my 28 new collections, I'd be down to 16. I'm guessing this has something to do with how my collections are named, so let's get some screen shots and reports for you.

@raiannon: First of all, be aware that you *will* have to JB the PW in order to do anything with Collections .

Second, if some collections are unchanged, you won't get anything about it in the review report, so I'm guessing that it's as simple as that, and everything's fine .

(If what's on Calibre's side is important anyway, you could also simply clear the collections on the Kindle and reexport them).
